Bill To Protect Taxi Drivers Adds Partitions, Panic Buttons

Knesset member Majalli Wahabi (Kadima) submitted a proposal Monday establishing a requirement to protect taxi drivers, following two recent taxi driver murders. Yafim Weinstein from Nazareth Illit was murdered on Monday, and Haamzah Haamzah, a neighbor of Wahabi's from Beit Jan in the Galilee, was murdered 10 days ago in his cab.
