+# From Ephraim Silverberg (2002-07-07):
+#
+# The Israeli government today adopted a proposal by Minister of Interior
+# Eli Yishai to shorten the period of Daylight Savings Time for the year
+# 2002 (only -- the dates for 2003 and 2004 are, so far, unaffected).
+#
+# The proposed date to Daylight Savings Time is September 13, 2002 instead
+# of the current date: October 7, 2002. The hour of changeover has not
+# yet been decided.
+#
+# (2002-07-10):
+# While today the Knesset passed the initial proposal to reduce DST by
+# some three weeks, a new compromise is being worked out between
+# Minister of Justice Meir Sheetrit and Minister of Interior Eli
+# Yishai to revert to standard time for a period of 48-96 _hours_
+# (sic) around the Yom Kippur fast day (September 15-16) and then go
+# *back* to DST until the end of October. The details of the proposal
+# have yet to be worked out, but the second and final readings of the
+# bill have until July 24 to pass.
+#
+# (2002-07-25):
+# Thanks go to Yitschak Goldberg from E&M for bringing this (Hebrew) article
+# to my attention:
+#
+# http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-2019315,00.html
+#
+# Hence, the proposal to shorten DST was withdrawn yesterday and the timezone
+# files that have been in effect since July 2000 are still valid for all of
+# 2002.
+#
+# Please note that the article mentions that the Shas MK's intend to
+# bring up their amendment for future years (2003 and beyond). What this
+# means exactly is anyone's guess since there are no set dates yet beyond
+# 2004 and the end day set for 2003 and 2004 is already the 7th of Tishrei
+# (i.e. before the fast of Yom Kippur). The only thing they may want to
+# change is the start date of DST in 2003 from Mar.28.03 (24th of Adar II)
+# to Apr.18.03 (16th of Nisan) so that the Passover Seder will take place
+# during Standard Time. The start date for 2004 is already Nisan 16th.
