Knesset Committee discusses whether a new minister will be appointed for the Third Temple
(Worthy News) – During a discussion in a Knesset committee concerning a new law, a question was raised about its application after the construction of the Third Temple. Though the suggestion was in jest and generated light-hearted banter, most of the opposition to the law came from the religious MKs while many of the non-religious lawmakers said they supported the law and did not oppose the Temple.
Hebrew language Kikar HaShabbat reported that on Wednesday morning, the Knesset’s Constitution, Law and Justice Committee discussed Amendment No. 14 to one the country’s Basic Law titled “The Government,” which adopted in its current form in 2001 to outline the composition and function of the Israeli government. The amendment currently being considered allows for the addition of ministers.
The question was raised by MK Michal Shir (Yesh Atid), a non-religious MK, if the government would be able,or even required to appoint an additional minister if the Third Temple is constructed. [ Source: Israel365 (Read More…) ]
