U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan came under attack during a visit to the Israeli Knesset. A remark by House Speaker Dan Tichon that the United Nations is biased against Israel and should not play a role in Middle East peace negotiations sparked a shouting match among legislators. Annan, who also visited the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial, made a speech in Jerusalem calling on Israel to commit itself to the principle of land for peace.
