Nazareth Illit Mayor Asks Arab Villages to Turn Down the Volume

Nazareth Illit Mayor Alex Gedelkin (Yisrael Beytenu) filed a request with the heads of surrounding Arab villages last week, asking them to lower the volume of the Muslim call to prayer from local muezzins during the annual Yom HaZikaron [Memorial Day] ceremonies in May.

Calls to prayer interrupt Memorial Day ceremony every year, the Nazareth Illit mayor says, and diminishes from the sanctity of the day.
