The disturbing Haredi-Muslim alliance in the Knesset

Anyone wondering why the Haredis are working to defeat the "muezzin law" in the Knesset should read this article:
The coalition government’s two haredi factions will oppose a bill aimed at preventing mosques from using loudspeakers during their night-time calls to prayer, a senior haredi lawmaker reaffirmed Tuesday.

In recent years, Knesset members have pursued legislation to crack down on the nightly disturbances caused by the Muslim call to prayer, which is blasted five times a day – including the “fajr” prayer before dawn and the late-night “isha” prayer.

The use of mosque loudspeakers to broadcast the calls to prayer have created serious disturbances for non-Muslim neighbors and nearby communities.

The latest bill intended to block the noisy late-night muezzin calls was drafted by Moti Yogev (Jewish Home) and Robert Ilatov (Yisrael Beytenu).

While the law appeared to have wide backing in the coalition, haredi MKs objected to the proposal, initially due to the concern that a broad ban on outdoor loudspeakers at houses of worship could affect synagogues use of PA systems ahead of the Sabbath.

Later, however, United Torah Judaism MKs revealed they had cut a deal with Arab lawmakers to block the “Muezzin Law” in exchange for support on other pieces of legislation.

"We do 'business' with them so that they will support laws important to the haredi public," UTJ MK Menachem Eliezer Moses explained earlier this year.
What laws? And what level of value? Even some Haredis live near areas where mosques can play that loud noise and can be frustrated by it, so what they're doing is as disrespectful to their own public as it is to anybody else. Not to mention dangerous. This is disgusting, and demonstrates again why UTJ and Shas aren't fit to be politicians.
