Smotrich Wants Israelis Safe 

Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich has demanded a change to the annual routine during the month of Ramadan.

“It makes no sense that every year during Ramadan, Israel braces itself for an attack. Ramadan passing peacefully is far more important to Arabs than to Israel,” Smotrich declared. “Security for Israelis is more important than anything. Roads should be closed, and they should be forbidden from using central routes to allow Israelis to travel safely.”

Under all circumstances, but certainly since the October 7th massacre, any small measure of trust that business will go on as usual with no threats has been shattered. We agree that every measure should be taken to protect Israelis and to keep Israel safe.
