Benjamin Netanyahu backs bill to stop mosque ‘noise’
PM says Israeli citizens complain about excessive "noise" coming from loudspeaker systems for calls to prayer.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he backs a bill limiting the volume of calls to prayer from mosques, a proposal government watchdogs call a threat to religious freedom.

Israeli media reported on Sunday the bill would stop the use of public address systems for calls to prayer.
