Jerusalem City Council member Yitzchak Pindrus turned this evening (Sunday), in a letter to members of the United Torah Judaism in the Knesset, members of the Council and the Commission for Shabbat, to stop the approval of the station complex on Tuesday by the district committee.

As revealed this morning in Behadrey Haredim, the expectation is that the station complex will be brought before the regional committee for planning and construction for approval on Tuesday.

Pindrus says in his letter: "My friends who are G-d fearing, on Tuesday morning will be discussed at the regional committee for deposit, the application of preparing the largest desecration of Shabbat – in the King's palace.

"The plan is submitted by us (Jerusalem Municipality), in full knowledge and with the clear aim for public desecration of Shabbat, as attached, and the Government of Israel (Israel Railways).

"Who's heart will not palpitate! Anyone who is able to prevent the desecration of the name of Heaven and has any influence, please please, only a few hours have remained. Jerusalem was destroyed only because of Shabboses which were desecrated in it."

Pindrus enclosed a post written by Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, announcing that he will not close the station complex on Shabbat. Barkat wrote: "The status quo in Jerusalem and the law allow the opening of places of entertainment and culture on Saturday and prohibit commercial and public transport in the city's Jewish areas. All the coalition factions are signed on the status quo, which reflects the will of the vast majority of Jerusalemites.

"This is a social compromise that takes place in the city for many years and which I am leading in the city of Jerusalem, a compromise which is not easy at all for all sides, but inevitable for those who want to live together in Jerusalem, secular, religious and Haredi.

"The station complex is a compound acting on these principles, and the attempts at closing it on Shabbat are a violation of the status quo! I will not let it, and I will act in any way that it will continue to be open in accordance with the law. The station site will not be closed and will continue to operate as usual!"
