Edelstein to Euro Parliament President: Prevent Religious Freedom Violation


Knesset Speaker MK Yuli Edelstein addressed  European Parliament President Martin Schulz just now from the Knesset floor.

"On behalf of all the Members of the Knesset - Jews and Muslims, secular and religious, from both the right and the left - I turn to you and to all the Members of Parliament with our request for your help to take off of the European Union's agenda to their attempts to damage principles of faith, and freedom of religion."

"A Europe that does not recognize legally and unanimously in the principals of religious freedom, including the freedom to perform circumcision, is a Europe that will fall."
