In the last hour (Tuesday), the Knesset’s Constitution Committee approved the ‘Closure Law’, the committee’s chairman, Yaakov Asher of Torah Judaism, said after the approval, “My madman – to take care of people with disabilities”

After the Constitution Committee approved for second and third reading the law that would allow the restriction of demonstrations, MK Yaakov who explained what he insisted would be exempted from the quarantine law.

“Dozens of yellow authorities have turned red within two to three weeks regardless of Arabs or ultra-Orthodox. Enforcement for the masses, for an entire country, is a difficult to impossible thing, and therefore it is not appropriate for them to make exceptions. Enforcement for the masses does not need a herd vaccine but a herd phenomenon. It is impossible to say yes to one child and no to another child. “

The MK from Torah Judaism further explained: “We are in the spread of a disease that is deceiving all the great scholars in the world. I pray to the Holy One, and ultra-Orthodox and religious have prayed for their neighbors Jews, Arabs, secular, and national religious, all, “Prevent an epidemic from your property,” that is what is before our eyes. We have no choice, let’s go through this surgery as quickly and correctly as possible and we can say that our hand will not shed this blood.

“I promised the committee several times that I will not rest on health issues and issues of people with disabilities, we promised and kept, these things were corrected and we will continue to do so in regulations. When I was mayor of Bnei Brak they knew that the mayor’s madness is to take care of welfare and people with disabilities, I will continue like this, “This model of deciding to close one city yes and one city no – it will not work.”

After these remarks, Finance Minister Israel Katz called: “I know you opposed the closure, but you have a big role to play. Take advantage of your bulldozer to get into the thinness of people falling between chairs and losing their livelihoods. Make good suggestions, and I tell you the opposition will support you.”

He concluded by saying, “I hope that the operation will be short and helpful, that we will be able to gradually return to a life of normalcy, that the Blessed One will send complete healing to all.”

The law approved by the committee

The law will enter into force tonight at midnight (subject to plenary approval) and at that time a statutory declaration of a “special state of emergency” as proposed in the law will enter into force.

The government will be able to declare a “special state of emergency due to the corona virus” for a week, if it is convinced of the widespread spread of the virus causing serious harm to public health and provided the closure regulations are in force.

The government complied with the request of the committee’s chairman, MK Yaakov Asher, according to which even in a “special state of emergency” to be declared during a closure, it will not be possible to completely prevent prayers, demonstrations or religious ceremonies, but restrictions can be set. ; Also in a “special state of emergency”, it will be possible to restrict a person’s departure for a demonstration to the distance allowed to leave the place of residence, which in the current regulations is 1000 meters.
