Tours of the Knesset during the winter assembly

Honored visitors,

Tours of the Knesset will be held as normal. The Chagall State Hall and the artist`s tapestries are under renovation and therefore the tour will not include a visit there. Thank you for understanding. We wish you an enjoyable and pleasant visit.



On the Public Agenda
During a special plenary session, Internal Security Minister Aharonovitch said that since the incident in which a police officer shot and killed a 22-year-old man who was trying to attack officers in the northern Arab village of Kfar Kana, he has been hearing ”lies upon lies, some by members of Knesset.” MK Tibi: ”When a Jew shot a prime minister, no one thought of shooting him”

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and 13 other Members of Knesset from the Likud Party break off and establish a new faction called ”National Responsibility” which later takes on the name ”Kadima.” MK Amir Peretz from the Labor Party: ”I think that in the spirit of the establishment of the new `National Responsibility` party, we all must take responsibility for our actions...national responsibility means that we should finally hold elections, letting the nation decide the makeup of the new political map.”
