Plan to silence call to prayer in Jerusalem mosques

The Islamic-Christian Council for Support of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) on Wednesday blasted the Israeli plan to prevent the call to prayer on the loudspeakers of mosques in Jerusalem and labelled it “a dangerous and racist crime and extremism against the holy places.”

The plan, pushed by new mayor of Jerusalem Moshe Lion, will reportedly see the city’s mosque loudspeakers replaced with new ones that broadcast at a lower volume, according to the Hadashot TV report.

Police will be allowed to reduce the volume of the speakers deemed to be too loud, it said.

But the council said in a statement that this move is the implementation of the controversial “Muezzin Law” and is “an attack on a holy thing in the city.” The “racist” plan may increase tension in the city of Al-Quds (Jerusalem), the council said.

Hanna Issa, the organization’s secretary-general, said that the denial of the sound of the call to prayer amounts to “racism” and “extremism” and coincides with the Israeli effort to change the Western, Islamic and Christian characteristics of Jerusalem into Jewish ones. (Arutz Sheva)
