Joint List MK Aida Touma-Sliman slams the deal reached to prevent the razing of the illegal Evyatar outpost in the West Bank as “legitimizing settlement and crime.”

“Instead of homes, this hill will in several weeks house a yeshiva, meaning dozens of young settlers who will only cause more violence, abuse and theft,” the Arab opposition lawmaker charges in a statement.

“Responsibility for this settlement crime lies with all the partners in the coalition,” she says. The coalition includes the Islamist Ra’am party.
