MK Yisrael Eichler (UTJ) on Wednesday morning slammed the Supreme Court for supporting the Reform movement and involving itself in the dispute over the Western Wall.

"It's a gang which receives money from Reform in exchange for leading the battle over this holy place," Eichler said in an interview with Reshet Bet Radio. "The Supreme Court has committed an historical crime, waging war against religion in the name of Reform. These justices are not the rulers of Israel."

According to Eichler, the Supreme Court takes care of every appeal the Reform movement makes.

"The Supreme Court justices are committing a crime in their war against religion," he said. "They accept all appeals from Reform if the issue relates to religion. Whether the issue is drafting into the IDF, transportation on Shabbat (Sabbath), conversion, the Western Wall, or not funding haredi schools - the Supreme Court will support Reform."

"These are little gangs of a few dozen Reform Jews, who do not even come to pray at the Western Wall. Instead, they create a religious war against millions of Jews from all sectors, who come to pray day and night at the Western Wall."

"These people incite Diaspora Jewry and speak as if we are excluding Jews - just like Islamic Movement leader Sheikh Salah incites millions of Muslims with his claims that Jews are destroying Al Aqsa mosque."

Eichler also called on the government to remove the far-left "Women of the Wall" from the Western Wall.

"Police removed Murabitat women from the Temple Mount - and we should remove the provocative 'Murabitat' women from the Western Wall."

In June, the government froze a plan which included moving the entrance to the mixed gender prayer section to the other sections' entrances and allowing representatives of the Reform and Conservative movements to be on the Western Wall Committee.
