Women in Israel have the right to sit anywhere they want, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told a crowd of 3,000 people at a Taglit-Birthright Mega-event at Jerusalem's Israel Convention Center on Wednesday.

“This is a country where Arabs have rights, the president of the Supreme Court is a woman and where a woman can sit anywhere she wants,” he said. “It’s a free country.”

The prime minister responded to the ongoing controversy that erupted last month about bus lines catering to the ultra-Orthodox where women sit in the back of the bus.

During his speech Netanyahu broke with official Birthright-Taglit policy and urged participants from over a dozen countries to immigrate to Israel.

“I want you to come here to make aliya,” he said. “Whether you do that or stay there be proud of your birthright.”
