MK Miki Zohar (Likud) strongly criticized this morning Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home), who is expected to approve today at the Ministerial Committee a law that seeks to block pornographic internet sites by forcing internet providers to provide automatic default filtering.

Zohar brought up the fact that the Minister of Justice had, several months ago, rejected a similar law advanced by Zohar himself.

“This is hypocrisy of the highest order,” Zohar said. Minister Shaked boasts a policy of blocking laws (1,100 since the beginning of her term) - but not when the law comes from [her own party of] Jewish Home.”

“Shaked has turned the Ministerial Committee into a tool in service of Jewish Home that has accustomed itself to stealing credit from the Likud,” Zohar added.

“Despite this, I am sure that the Israeli public is smart enough to discern who [...] is really working for it. It pains me that Minister Shaked makes decisions based on irrelevant matters,” he said.
