Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday he was glad that key rabbis had condemned haredi (ultra-Orthodox) violence and discrimination against women.

Speaking at an annual Bible quiz for adults and on the eve of a mass demonstration for women's rights in Beit Shemesh, he said he had instructed police to arrest the perpetrators of such attacks.

"Discrimination against women goes against the tradition of the Bible and the principles of Judaism," he said.
