Margi threatens Shas may leave coalition over convert bill

Religious Affairs Minister Ya'acov Margi threatened on Wednesday that the Shas party may leave the governing coalition if the IDF conversion bill passes its first reading in the Knesset.
"If the prime minister does not keep his promises and stop this law making its ways through the Knesset, there is no doubt that this will be considered crossing some red lines and cause a serious crisis even leading to a breakup of the coalition," Margi said during an interview with haredi radio station Kol Hai Radio.
