# and this is one of the things the newly-appointed Minister of Interior
# will have to decide sometime this year.
# The dates for 1996-1998 were also obtained from Office of the Spokeswoman
# for the Ministry of Interior, Jerusalem, Israel. The official announcement

#
# Emptor Caveat: The dates for the years 1996-1998 were originally announced
# on August 31, 1995, by the previous Minister of Interior. The new Minister
# of Interior changed the dates on January 1, 1996, to take into account the
# desires of certain portions of Israeli society (the next election is in the
# Fall of 1996). After this (1996) year's Daylight Savings Time is over, the
# new minister has announced that a study will be conducted as to the wishes of
# the populace regarding the length of Daylight Savings Time and the Interior
# Committee will meet to review the results of the study and make any necessary
# changes to the 1997-1998 dates. Never a dull moment in the State of Israel.
