Minister of Interior Poraz has announced that he will respect the law
passed in July 2000 (proposed at the time jointly by himself and
then-MK David Azulai [Shas]) fixing the dates for 2000-2004. Hence,
the dates for 2003 and 2004 remain unchanged:
Year Start End
---- ----- ---
2003 Mar. 28 Oct. 3
2004 Apr. 7 Sep. 22
Where the start/end takes place at 1 AM old time (i.e. 1 a.m. IST => 2 a.m. IDT
and 1 a.m. IDT => midnight IST).

As far as 2005 and beyond, no dates have been set. However, the minister
has mentioned that he wishes to propose to move Israel's timezone in 2005
from GMT+2 to GMT+3 and upon that have DST during the summer months (i.e.
GMT+4). However, no legislation in this direction is expected until the
latter part of 2004 which is a long time off in terms of Israeli politics.
