MK Mozes to PM: Stop desecration of Shabbat

Chairman Menachem Eliezer Mozes of the United Torah Judaism Knesset faction has attacked the government for continuing to allow desecration of the Jewish Sabbath in the public sphere. Referring to activities carried out by Israel Railways, or by the Electric Company, or on Highway 6, Member of Knesset Mozes said, during Knesset deliberations, "Here in the state of the Jews, every Saturday night we are made aware of the desecration of the Sabbath, while employing Jews at an exceptional wage of up to 400%."

Attacking ministers for passing the buck of responsibility, Mozes declared that UTJ expects the Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, with all the complex security and political realities, to consider the coalition agreement signed between the haredi-religious factions and his Likud party.
