It would be a great pity if the current Justice Minister did not act in this matter. He must put his Ministerial responsibility first and his particular role is crucial to these circumstances. There is a state. It has laws. It is a democracy. Those laws are a reflection of and the means whereby this democracy is upheld. The fact of the Minister's personal faith beliefs should not in anyway impinge on him taking the proper and immediate action. If for a minute there is a sense that this is why he is silent and he and his Ministry do not act, then we the people have to know that we are in serious danger of our democracy withering before our eyes. The Minister can at least call on those other senior Haredi Rabbanim who in the last day or so refused to sign a petition favouring discrimination against Arab citizens, but failure to act and to be seen to be acting now would be a sign that we are deeper into our abyss than we've been before.
