Sderot Mayor to Netanyahu: Make All Towns Put Up a Flag


Sderot Mayor Alon Davidi on Sunday called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to pass a law requiring all cities and towns in Israel to place the Israeli flag at the entrance.

“I see in the placing of the national flag at the entrance of each locality a great and symbolic act,” wrote Davidi in a letter to Netanyahu, which came on the heels of Netanyahu’s announcement that he will submit a new law to the Knesset, enshrining the State of Israel's status as the nation-state of the Jewish people.
