Religious Affairs Minister Yaakov Margi said in an interview with Army Radio on Friday that he believes Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will not let the military conversions bill pass.

"All conversions up until now will be authorized and in the future, conversions will be coordinated with the general conversion system," under the auspices of the Chief Rabbinate, Margi explained.
