Jewish, Muslim MKs call to pull ‘muezzin bill

Legislation restricting the Muslim call to prayer to hours that do not disturb the public will cause more harm than good and should be replaced with dialogue, Jewish and Muslim religious leaders told a Knesset conference Monday called by MKs Yehudah Glick (Likud) and Zuheir Bahloul (Zionist Union).

“Legislation does not need to manage our lives; true dialogue should,” Bahloul said. “The cooperation between MK Glick and me is the essence of ‘yes’ to understanding and dialogue and ‘no’ to antagonistic and forceful legislation.”
