The minaret is an act of defiance against Israeli authorities for a bill in the Knesset
Jordan slammed Israel for trying to pass the controversial 'muezzin bill,' saying it could violate human rights such as Freedom of Religion as well as the peace treaty between the two countries.
MK Tibi: The muezzin was here before the racist MKs; MK Ilatov: You should go back to Saudi Arabia.
The original text of the legislation would have proscribed such use of outdoor speakers at any time.
Joint List leader Ayman Oden says the law is "an unnecessary evil promoted by the prime minister."
The bill is sponsored by Bayit Yehudi MK Moti Yogev and supported by many Jewish citizens who live near mosques.
Coalition sources said progress on the legislation was frozen.
Lawmakers urge dialogue instead of legislation.
Let’s enforce the existing noise laws which already outlaw excessive noise at certain times
