4. Bill aims to silence mosques
New legislation proposes to restrict call of Muezzin, claims that use of public address system disruptive to residents

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4159011,00.ht...

<snip>

"A bill proposing to restrict the noise made by mosques will be up for discussion at the Ministerial Committee on Legislative Affairs on Sunday.

The proposal aims to prohibit mosques from sounding the nighttime and early morning calls of the Muezzin who uses a public address system to beckon worshipers to pray in order to avoid disrupting nearby residents. As per the initiative, the interior minister will be able to determine which mosques could sound the call and when.

The bill bases its premise on a study conducted by the Knesset Information and Research Center, which surveyed the clash between the freedom of religion and resident's rights. The study observed a rise in the number of complaints filed by residents of Jaffa, Haifa, Ramle and other cities over the disruptive noise and the lack of volume regulation."
