Thousands of Israeli Arabs on Friday took to the streets to protest the so-called Muezzin Law, vowing that the call of “Allahu akbar” that is sounded by the person called a Muezzin during the Muslim call to prayer will continue to be heard.

The protests took place following Friday prayers in Kafr Qasim, Tayibe, Kabul, Kafr Kanna and Rahat.

Protesters called to stop the legislative process, waving banners that read, “Silence the voice of racists, not the voice of the muezzin” and “A racist law”.

The law would prohibit all places of worship from using loudspeakers which disturb citizens’ sleep, but Arabs see it as specifically targeting mosques, since synagogues do not use loudspeakers.

No one is silencing the muezzin, supporters explain, just the decibel level at midnight and before dawn. They claim that many Arabs have quietly expressed their support for the law.

At a protest in Kafr Qasim, the mayor, Adel Badir, said, according to the Yedioth Ahronothnewspaper, “Here, at this place where we’re demonstrating, 49 martyrs were murdered in a massacre carried out by soldiers.”

“We were born with ‘Allahu akbar,’ and we’ll continue saying, ‘Allahu akbar,'” he declared.

One Kafr Qasim resident who was at the protest said, according to Yedioth Ahronoth, “If this racist law passes, quiet will not come. We’ll continue to fight with all (our) strength, and it doesn’t matter to us what the results may be. Arrests, indictments and investigations won’t deter us. The Israeli government must understand that harming the Muslim religion is a red line.”

MK Ahmed Tibi (Joint List), who earlier this week called on the Arab public to disobey the law should it pass, took part in a protest on Friday in the Arab village of Jisr az-Zarqa, located in northern Israel north of Caesarea, and once again spoke out against the bill.

Passing the law, said Tibi, is “an act of coercion and provocation”.

“Prime Minister Netanyahu’s involvement in the law has made it the focus of international interest, including in the Islamic world, which sees it as hurting the feelings of Muslims across the world,” he added, according to Channel 10 News.

Indeed, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has expressed support for the law, but it appears that the legislative process is on hold for now.

While the Ministerial Committee for Legislation has approved the bill, a preliminary vote on it was postponed after Health Minister Ya’akov Litzman (United Torah Judaism) filed an appeal against the law.

Litzman objects to the law in its present wording on the grounds that its wording may leave room for it to be used against the siren that sounds in many Israeli cities on Friday afternoons to announce the start of the Sabbath.

On Friday, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) indicated that she does not support the bill either although she agrees with its aim and abstained during the vote in the Ministerial Committee for Legislation.

“There is already a law against excessive noise which is not being enforced. The Interior Minister, the Internal Security Minister, and the Environment Minister all agreed that the existing regulations [cover the issue of the muezzin], but they have to be enforced,” said Shaked’s office.

“Justice Minister Shaked believes that when it is possible to enforce the existing law there is no need to legislate further. Nevertheless, the idea expressed in the law is important, and therefore Shaked decided to abstain,” the statement continued.

His leadership and television interviews have gone trough out the world Uriel has done close to 500 interviews in Israel Jerusalem, and many more to come our main goal is to educate the world about Israel and its right to protect herself from any form of terrorism .Israel is facing many challenges and dangers, and has been for a very long time. There is, an unprecedented propaganda campaign initiated by the Arab League to demonize, to discredit and delegitimize the Jewish people and its state, in its own land!. In order to achieve their goals, the Arabs have for more than 30 years resorted to a deliberate misinformation campaign.This propaganda campaign by the Arab League - both in their own countries and for the last three decades exported to Europe and North America - has caused to Israel what would seem irreparable damage and indeed, it was the main culprit in the reawakening of dormant European anti-Semitism Israel has suffered many terror attacks from terrorist .Israel should not bow down to any pressure imposed by the USA the EU. the Quartet nor the UN The current Obama administration continues to work behind the scenes by using John Kerry and others to fulfill their hidden agenda as I call it. The Obama administration is trying to force Israel to give up more land for false peace as we have seen in the past .Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley are at the negotiating table and if the so called Palestinians obtain Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley, Givat Haroe'eh in the Samaria community of Eli, Ramat Gilad and Giv'at Assaf (also in Samaria), and Mitzpeh Lachish, near Nehogot, outside Hevron. they can easily rain down rockets towards any city within Israel and Israel will be left without defensible borders . We say no land for false peace as we have seen in the past. Barrack Hussein Obama has a hidden agenda against Israel. Israel will face many difficult days ahead See Psalms 83' as we have seen what happened with Gush Katif were almost 9,000 Jews were forced out of their own Jewish land due to US pressure , now Bet El Almuna and Migron and Judea and Samaria face the same consequence .More than 17,000 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel over 11,000, just to Sderot by Islamist extremist who want the total destruction of my people Israel. Hamas terrorist who are supported by Iran and now Hamas has joined hands with Fatah.Iran Lebanon Hezbollah Syria want the total destruction of Israel and now Al Qaeda and ISIS who are operating in Syria Egypt and the Sinai Desert will do anything in their power to destroy my people Israel and all Jews. The Moslem/ Arabs in that area started calling themselves “Palestinians” nearly 40 years ago. “Palestinian” refers to people who live in Palestine: Arabs (“Arabic speaking peoples”), Bedouins, Druze, Christians, and Jews. No people or nation ever ruled as a sovereign national entity on this land there is no Palestinian language or culture in past history. Palestine, as a country does not presently exist. No Arab nation has their historical roots on the land and no one have cl...aim to this territory other than the Jews. The Jewish rule of this land extended over a period of over 2000 years. Israel became a nation in the land in 1312 BC. God gave them the land in a covenant (Deuteronomy 29:1-30:20) and they lived there See Quote from Quran', Death to the enemies of Allah Those that make war against Allah and His apostle and spread disorder in the land shall be slain or crucified or have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or be banished from the land. They shall be held up to shame in this world and sternly punished in the hereafter: except those that repent before you reduce them. For you must know that Allah is forgiving and merciful.Al-Maidah The Table 5:33-34 This is what radical Islam say's about us Jews' "The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews." (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim). Judea and Samaria also faces many challenges in the days to come as Abbu Massen will try to pressure the entire world and US President Barrack Hussein Obama the EU and the Quartet into giving more land for false peace we saw what happened after the Oslo Accords were signed more terror against Israel . Abbu Massen the PA. leader approached the United Nations this past November 2012 and has ask them to declare them a recognized nation within Israel known borders.
