Police minister joins criticism of Yair Golan’s ‘subhuman’ remark

Public Security Minister Omer Barlev joins the chorus of condemnation of Deputy Economy Minister Yair Golan over his remark calling Jewish settlers residing in the illegal Homesh outpost in the northern West Bank “subhuman.”

Barlev, of the center-left Labor party, tells Channel 13 news that Golan’s comments were “unfortunate and harsh” and that they should not have been made.

“We have an obligation to evacuate an illegal outpost, that’s the law, but between that and the deputy minister’s comments, there’s a huge gap,” he says.
