Bill barring mosques from blasting call to prayer to get Knesset vote

 A bill that would bar mosques from broadcasting the call to prayer on loudspeaker systems is set to come before Israel’s Knesset.

The Ministerial Committee on Legislation will vote on the bill Sunday, Reuters reported. In addition to banning loudspeakers for the prayers, which are held five times a day, the bill would also prohibit “conveying religious or nationalist messages, or even words of incitement” through such broadcasts.
