‘What’s wrong with mezuzah-kissing?’ PM asks

Prime Minister Netanyahu asks, “Since when is it a crime to kiss a mezuzah?” referring to comments by Israeli painter Yair Garbuz who mocked religious Israelis, during a speech at Rabin Square on Saturday night.

“I heard someone speak of people who kiss mezuzot with disdain. Since when is it a crime to kiss a mezuzah? We know where we came from and we know what country we came back to. We know what we are fighting to keep. We know about our tradition and about our heritage,” Netanyahu said.

The prime minister was speaking at a conference of Likud women, according to NRG.
