Saar: Tel Aviv Doesn't Know How to Respect the Law


Interior Minister Gideon Saar railed on Facebook against what he called the Tel Aviv Municipality's deliberate attempt to undermine his authority and order that all markets in Tel Aviv be closed on Shabbat.

Writing Sunday, Saar slammed the city's enforcement of orders to ensure that food markets remain closed as required by law as “another 'bluff.' They said they would enforce the law but ended up giving out only trivial fines, which no one will heed.”
