Quote of the Day

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
The Likud is leading the religious coercion and has turned into more of a Haredi and extreme party than UTJ.... the government's decision to support the law proposed by MK Miki Zohar of the Likud that will actively prevent the opening of businesses on Shabbos as was acceptable until now will cause great damage to hundreds of thousands of families, both those who enjoy taking advantage of their day off in these places, and also those who benefit from running the businesses that make their living from that... this is another stage in which this government, that is already under the control of the Haredim, is turning the State of Israel into a halachic state, via betrayal of the immigrant and secular communities..
  -- MK Avigdor Lieberman (Yisrael Beyteynu)
I am not sure if legislating Shabbos is a good idea or bad one (both the legislation that has already been on the books and the new legislation), though it seems to me more likely to be bad overall and will cause a backlash, but I think Lieberman's statement is a bit of an exaggeration and employs a decent amount of hyperbole
