Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has called on leaders of the chareidi factions in Knesset to discuss arrangements at the Kosel regarding the egalitarian prayer area. Mr. Netanyahu wishes to meet with Aryeh Deri, Yaakov Litzman and Moshe Gafne after Shavuos. Also invited to attend is Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked.

The chareidim have drawn their red line, informing the Prime Minister that they are unwilling to accept any arrangement that will legitimize a non-Orthodox foothold at the Kosel. They explain this is a deal breaker which will result in the coalition government breaking apart.

  1. What is it about these political hacks from the Chareidi parties that won’t acknowledge their hypocrisy. Over a year ago they agreed to a compromise to satisfy a final order from the Courts. That order satisfied on one but thats the reality of a negotiated settlement. After they ratified the agreement, a few rabbonim pushed back and these politicians went into a state of panic and tried to renege on their agreement.
