‘greater Israel’ Delegation in Clash with Knesset Speaker

March 20, 1968
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Forty members of the “Greater Israel” movement stormed out of the Knesset (Parliament) last night after Speaker Kaddish Luz refused to seat all of them as a delegation and said he would permit entry of only 15. They had come to the parliamentary chamber to submit a petition demanding that the cease-fire demarcation lines created during last June’s Six-Day War be made the permanent boundaries of Israel. The petition was not presented. The “Greater Israel” movement advocates the incorporation of all occupied Arab territories into Israel. Its membership, though not large, includes several national figures, including Mrs. Rachel Ben-Zvi, widow of Israel’s second President, and Nobel Laureate S. Y. Agnon, the writer.
