About 200 Likud activists attended a meeting to express their objection to the temporary settlement freeze announced by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Yesha leader Ron Nachman said in the meeting: "I want the ministers to look me in the eye and tell me – what is Likud's way? This is the way of Rabin, Barak, Meretz, and the Left."
Nachman added that he will petition the High Court of Justice against the freeze. He also praised Minister Limor Livnat for speaking out against the Obama Administration.
"You should be praised for having the courage to utter these words," he said. "Obama would not dare do in America what is being done here. They have a constitution there, rather than prostitution."
Another activist, Beit Ariyeh Local Authority Head Avi Naim, also slammed the US Administration for exerting pressure on Netanyahu.
"The Obama regime is anti-Jewish and anti-Semitic; it's the worst," Naim said.
Meanwhile, Likud Knesset Member Danny Danon, who is a Netanyahu rival, slammed the Likud-led government for "telling 300,000 Jews that they're a problem," referring to the settler
Danon added that he will seek to convene the Likud Central Committee over the settlement freeze.
"We hoped that we won the elections and would be able to rest, but there is no choice," he said. "The time has come to wake up the national camp within Likud….from now on there is no longer quiet within Likud. We're the majority and we'll avert this bad decision."
