Religious Authority Approved

In Israel, the orthodox Shas Party is now in charge of all orthodox radio stations in the country, making it the first religious broadcasting authority in the country.
The Shas Party is demanding that Israel find a solution to the existence of pirate radio stations, most of which are identified with Shas.
However, Justice Minister Yossi Beilin and Communications Minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer have drafted a bill that calls for the establishment of special interest nationwide stations governed by the Second Television and Radio Authority, which regulates private broadcasting.
The two ministers plan to request that a final decision on the issue be made in a vote by the full cabinet.
