Prime Minster Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the recent controversy over the exclusion of women in the public domain on Sunday, saying that "a fringe group must not be allowed to dismantle what we share in common."

Speaking at the opening of the weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said that the public domain must be kept "open and safe" for all Israeli citizens.

"The Israeli society is a complicated mosaic of Jews and Arabs, secular and religious. We have always agreed to coexist in peace, with mutual respect between all sectors of Israeli society," the prime minister stated.

"Lately we have been witness to attempts to unravel this coexistence. We must seek that which unifies us and bridges the gaps between us, not what splits us up and separates us," he added.
