Police minister appears to criticize police’s scrapping of nationalist parade

Public Security Minister Amir Ohana, whose ministry oversees police, suggests he’s no fan of the force’s decision to withhold permission for planned nationalist march in Jerusalem.

“I hear the complexities and the difficulties and still believe that the decision needs to come before the political leadership because of it’s importance. “‘To be a free people in our land’ shouldn’t just be a line from the national anthem,” tweets Ohana.

He adds: “I spoke with the prime minister and we intend to hold a deliberation on the matter.”
