… The leaders of the ultra-Orthodox factions don’t care about the interests of Tel Aviv’s secular residents.
They are concerned that if the law passes, it will affect other cities and that Israel will become a more secular state.
If the position of these ministers is accepted, Israel will be taking another step toward becoming a country ruled by clergymen – contrary to the will of the majority of its people, who want a more modern and developed state.
The latter want a country that takes religious customs into account, but works according to the values of the free majority, as is the case in all developed countries.
It is to be hoped that Dery understands this and keeps the situation in Tel Aviv as is.
