Israeli MKs and minister have been working to introduce a new copy of what is known as the Muezzin Bill to give power to police to break into mosques to silence the Muslim call to prayer, Quds Press reported yesterday.
According to Israeli news website 0404, the new copy of the bill, which had preliminary Knesset approval in March 2017, is planned to be proposed to parliament soon.
The website said that a committee consisting of Interior Minister Gilad Erdan, Environment Minister Zeev Elkin and other MKs, including Moti Yogev who initiated the bill, have already laid down the terms of the new copy.
According to the Israeli website, the new amendments give addition power to Israel Police that enables officers to break into mosques in Israel and Jerusalem, confiscate loudspeakers and impose fines up to 10,000 shekels ($2,860) on those said to be violating the law.
The Israeli government began measures to approve the bill in November 2016 and it passed a first reading the Knesset in March 2017.
Palestinians living in Israel, both Muslims and Christians, criticised the move as another step towards Judaising Jerusalem, eradicating the Arabic history of Palestine and supressing religious freedoms.
It is an aggression on the Islamic rituals, Sheikh Sulieman Satel, Imam of Al-Nuzha Mosque in Yaffa, said. The real aim of this racist bill is not an attempt to reduce noise, but to silence the Muslim call to prayer because those behind it hate Islam.
Athan is not more than two or three minutes and this proves that the real aim of this bill is that they do not want to hear or see any sign related to the Islamic or Arabic existence in this country he stressed.
Palestinians will not remain silent while their mosques are desecrated and their legal, religious and humanitarian right to practice their religious rituals freely is violated, he continued.
Sheikh Satel said that this bill is part of the continuous planning to erase the identity of the Palestinians in Israel in addition to the numerous laws, including those giving power to Israeli authorities to confiscate the property of the Palestinian endowments.
Hint: theres no call Muslim call to prayer if theres no Muslims. Deport.
Some modern mosques use radio for this.
Good. Israel has seen what muzzies are like, and knows how to protect itself.
Anyone who has been to Israel knows the agression in this situation is the thousand watt amplifiers and the ring of bullhorns on the minnerets that wail like an air raid siren for ten minutes five times a day. The Muslims claim the purpose is a call to prayer for the congregation, but the volume is so high that you can hear any of the towers for miles. The content of the call is curses on the God of Israel and aloha snack bar claims.
Five a clock in the morning till sunset five times a day, almost an hour of air raid sirens seven days a week from dozens of towers all at once.
And so they should.
How many muslims live in Israel? How many Jews live in muslim/arab countries?
Are churches or synagogues even allowed in Muslim countries? So they really have no basis to complain.
*JEWS* are not even allowed in *slin countries, so no, no synagogues.
There are mosques in Rome. There are mosques in Jerusalem. But there are no churches are in Mecca. And there are no synagogues are in Mecca.
Funny how liberals get around to addressing that.
Bulldoze the mosque as well.
Excellent, if it passes.
Hopefully search for weapons/bombs as well.
Thriving churches exist in every Muslim-majority country except Saudi Arabia (by law) and Afghanistan (there’s a church in the Italian embassy there not open to foreign nationals). There are also Hindu temples in all the Gulf state and Yemen for migrant workers from India and Nepal.
Jewish communities remain in certain Middle Eastern countries, mostly in Iran, which holds the largest Jewish population in the Middle East outside Israel. Many of the synagogues in the Middle East have either been preserved as museums or reserved for the few Jews that remain to frequent them, such as ones in Egypt.
They are munition dumps.
If they're breaking the law relative to volume, a law to enforce the law shouldn't even be necessary.
Hardly the anti-religion bill that it's opponents make it out to be.
As murder is illegal, a law to ban weapons is also redundant. The issue is the Muslim propensity to lie about everything for any advantage. Suddenly it is a “religious expression” to reach ear bleeding volume while announcing prayer.
