Israeli bill to muffle Muslim call to prayer stokes tempers on all sides

Following the approval Sunday of the so-called Muezzin bill of Bayit Yehudi MK Moti Yogev for a preliminary reading in the Knesset, activists on both sides of the dispute regarding the noise-levels of the Islamic call to prayer have spoken out.

Arye Orange of Pisgat Ze’ev in north Jerusalem has been campaigning for relief from what he describes as an “unbearable disturbance and an injustice” in relation to the call to prayer, broadcast over loud speakers at mosques in the early hours of the morning.
