Images and text posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

Posted text: “Whoever is bothered by the sound of the Muezzin’s call (i.e., the person who sings the Muslim call to prayer) should return to Europe
(The same statement appears in broken Hebrew below–Ed.)
#You_will_not_silence_the_Muezzin”

The first image shows tall minarets, and in the foreground a mob of armed figures is marching while carrying a sign.
Text on sign: “Bill to ban the Muezzin’s call”

The second image shows a mosque with a dome that is shining red like an alarm, while a hand with a Star of David on its sleeve covers the mouth of the mosque tower to prevent the call to prayer.

On Feb. 12, 2017, a bill to ban religious institutions from broadcasting over loudspeakers between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. was authorized by the Israeli Ministerial Committee for Legislation and is now pending parliamentary approval. The bill is intended to prevent noise pollution and is referred to by many as the "Muezzin Law," although it does not apply to any specific religion.
Other countries have already approved or attempted legislation for regulating the use of loudspeakers in mosques in order to limit noise pollution. These include India, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Bahrain, the United Emirates, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, the UK, Austria, Norway, and Belgium, and the US. The PA has also passed legislation regarding the use of loudspeakers in mosques in order to reduce noise pollution.
