Netanyahu Warned

JERUSALEM -- Orthodox legislators said Tuesday they will bring down Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government unless he gets legislation passed by November that will block recognition of Reform and Conservative Judaism in Israel. The ultimatum came after the government's effort of the past few month to find a compromise failed.


At the dispute's core is the fight over control of religion in Israel. The Orthodox have a monopoly, but the Reform and Conservative movements are seeking a greater role in Israel.
