The Minister of Interior expressed today a willingness to re-instate
Daylight Saving Time after the Fast of Yom Kippur (September 18, 2010):,7340,L-3949359,00.html

Several "insiders" have expressed the opinion that this is unlikely to be
actually legislated this year partially because of the small amount of time
remaining to both the beginning of Standard Time and the Fast of Yom Kippur.

I will update the forum if any actual legislation is tabled.
