      El Al Accused of Not Hiring Religious Jewish Pilots

      Member of Knesset Yoni Chetboun (Bayit Yehudi - National Union) sent a query to Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz (Likud - YIsrael Beiteinu) in regards to allegations that E Al is reluctant to hire kippah-wearing, Shabbat observant pilots. "Is it a coincidence that among 500 pilots to the pilot maintains there is only one Sabbath?" asked MK Chetboun. One such pilot sought the help of MK Chetboun this week in regards to the hiring practices allegations.
