Zandberg says she is proposing this law in response to the new "Shabbos Law" proposed last week by MK Miki Zohar that makes it more difficult for businesses to operate on Shabbos.

Zandberg says that only if we stop the ministers from using their cars on shabbos will they finally understand how people without cars are stuck on Shabbos, unable to go anywhere due to the lack of public transportation.

These influences are testing the Almighty and wait until he responds - oy vey.
