Israel endorses bill to mute mosques: justice ministry

by AFP  |  published on February 13, 2017

MinaretJerusalem – Israeli ministers on Sunday endorsed a contentious draft bill which Muslims say is meant to silence the traditional call to prayer, information released by the justice ministry showed.

A list of draft legislation put to the vote in the powerful ministerial committee on legislation marked the “bill for prevention of noise from public address systems in houses of prayer” as having “passed”.

It gave no further details.

Approval by the committee, chaired by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked of the far-right Jewish Home party, means that the draft will now go before parliament as a government bill.

While its heading makes no mention of any specific religion, the bill has become commonly known as the “muezzin law” after the lay Muslim officials charged with calling the faithful to prayer, often through powerful speakers mounted on minarets.

    Good and while at it don’t let anymore be built. They put mineretes up for one reason, to be taller than any cathedral or other religious building and they scream from these towers 5 times a day their call to prayer. It is not their country and not their rules. Those who are citizens of Israel can’t have it their way. They are more than a PIA they are dangerous and have proved it over and over.

    Israel will know peace when she removes all of them.

      The problem is, not in Israel but all over Europe and other countries people who don’t have a clue what Islam is, if they did nobody would want them in their countries.
