the price of no chametz is chametz

The coalition today finished passing the law proposal of MK Moshe Gafni (UTJ) to allow hospital administrator's to publish a ban on chametz in the hospital under their authority. According to Gafni the law does not empower them to place a security guard at the door to check through people's bag to confiscate any chametz but only to make an official ban and to have someone let people know about the rule, along with signage.

In my opinion, this is a bad law, as most religious laws are. It is antagonistic, and while we have to see how it plays out, many online are talking about plans in response to spread chametz in public areas, including in hospitals, more than ever before. It might be a few hotheads, or it might be a mass of people, I guess we will find out in a bit over a week.

Especially without the right to check bags and confiscate chametz being brought in, what is the point of the law - just to allow hospital administrators to make an announcement? That is their big accomplishment? that is worth the price of antagonizing the secular community?

    I'm surprised you're criticizing the law rather than the court ruling that necessitated it. This was the status quo until Bagatz started interfering and invented a new law that banned even making an announcement. What was that if not antagonistic?

    It's a battle of mututal antagonism. The Bagatz invents laws they know will aggravate the Chareidim. They want people to be anti-religious so they'll buy into Aharon Barak's vision of a secular, non-Jewish Israel. The Chareidim live on antagonism so they can tell their followers that everyone hates them and that's why they have to stick together. No better way to do that than make everyone hate you. And around it goes.
