Rightist MK: High Court, not settler homes, must be bulldozed to the ground

The High Court decision to order the state to demolish two illegally built structures in the West Bank settlement of Beit El elicited harsh reactions from the Right on Wednesday.

MK Moti Yogev of the pro-settler Bayit Yehudi party said in response that "we should ride up in D-9 bulldozers and raze the High Court of Justice to the ground." Yogev made the remarks before entering a meeting of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

Yogev’s Bayit Yehudi colleague, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, preached moderation, saying the state must respect the rule of law "and accept the High Court ruling and the harsh decree" ordering the demolition of illegally constructed homes in Beit El.
