Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu calls for ban on ear-shattering, amplified Muslim Calls to Prayer from mosques
To Hell with the neighbors, especially the Jewish ones and the dogs, many mosques blast over-amplified Calls to Prayer up to five times a day, starting as early as 5AM, and audible from even miles away. ‘There’s no need to be more liberal than Europe,’ Netanyahu says of proposed ban on call-to prayer noise pollution.
HAARETZ Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday voiced support for a law that would ban mosques from using loudspeaker systems to call people to prayer. The so-called Muezzin Law, propsed by MK Anastassia Michaeli (Yisrael Beiteinu ) applies to all houses of worship but the practice is prevalent only in mosques. Michaeli has said hundreds of thousands of Israeli citizens routinely suffer from the noise caused by the muezzin’s calls to prayer.
“I have received numerous requests from people who are bothered by the noise from the mosques,” he said. “The same problem exists in all European countries, and they know how to deal with it. It’s legitimate in Belgium; it’s legitimate in France. Why isn’t it legitimate here? We don’t need to be more liberal than Europe.”
Michael Eitan, minister for the improvement of government services, agreed with Meridor, adding that this law was just a pretext for those wishing to legislate against Muslims. “If the desire was to combat sound, then a law against sound in all areas should be introduced,” said Eitan. “But the MK proposing the bill wants to combat religion. I met with her and she tried selling it to me as an environmental law. I said to her, ‘Look me in the eyes. You are not interested in the environment, but in Islam.”
Listen to the Muslim ‘Call to Prayer’ which Barack Hussin Obama says, is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth.” And he can recite it in perfect Arabic.
Being subjected to this 5 times a day is worse than Chinese water torture.
