Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Monday called for action in the wake of Saturday's Haredi riots in Jerusalem, in which six police officers and a press photographer were lightly hurt when protesters hurled stones, garbage and diapers at police.
"No one has a monopoly over Shabbat," Livni said.
The Haredim were protesting the opening of the city hall car parking lot on Shabbat, though it is being operated by a non-Jew and no fees are being collected.
"Kadima wants Israel to be a Jewish State with Jewish values, and Shabbat is definitely part of that. Nonetheless, any instance of violence against police is not a political issue, but rather a question of values."
