    How horrible that slavery of any kind to say nothing of sex slavery exists in this, our Jewish country. I don’t
    feel that asking or requesting or even imploring is the correct word. I insist that members of knesset
    criminalize sex slavery in Israel! NOW!

  2. Peggy Sakow says:

    We support the bill proposed by MK Orit Zuaretz that criminalizes demand. It is demand for paid sex that fuels the marketing of women and children for prostitution. The sale of women and children has no place in Israel, our beloved Jewish State. Minister of Justice Neeman, we call upon you to see that this bill becomes law and stand with the most progressive nations in the world on a firm foundation of Jewish values, ethics and morals. Human trafficking and sex trafficking are human rights issues. Hear, Oh Israel!
