Minister of Religious Affairs: “The vast majority of Jews in Israel are Orthodox Jews. Agreements can be reached without giving the minority a margin of control at the Western Wall” • MK Gilad Karib: “It is time for Minister Kahana to stop inciting the ultra-Orthodox parties, Smutritz and Ben Gvir”
The Minister of Religious Affairs, Matan Kahana, called this evening (Saturday evening), in an interview with Here News, to allow Jews to pray on the Temple Mount.
“The Temple Mount is the holiest place for the Jewish people,” he said, “I was happy to meet with the organizations involved in ascending the mountain. I think it is right to allow Jews to pray on the mountain. “
On the layout of the Western Wall, he stated: “The vast majority of the Jews in the Land of Israel are Orthodox Jews. I do not think that other currents should be allowed to run the Western Wall. It is possible to reach agreements without giving the minority a margin of control over the Western Wall. ”
The chairman of the Constitution, Law and Justice Committee, MK Gilad Karib of Labor, responded: “Minister Matan Kahana forgets that most Jews in Israel are not Orthodox, but secular and traditional, and the vast majority support the Western Wall outline and other compromises on religion and state. It is time for Minister Kahana to stop acting in accordance with the incitement of the ultra-Orthodox parties, Smutritz and Ben Gvir, but in accordance with the spirit of the government and its basic guidelines. “
He added: “If Minister Kahana is interested in promoting his reforms in matters of religion and state, he should also be more attentive to the positions of the other coalition partners on these issues. The outline of the Western Wall is an outline of a compromise that has previously received the support of Prime Minister Bennett, and should be implemented quickly. “
