> 	asia		Palestine suspends DST during Ramadan in 2011;
> 			Gaza and Hebron split in 2011, leading to a new
> 			Asia/Hebron zone

I am not convinced that the proposed change adequately reflects the fact
that Asia/Gaza and Asia/Hebron _started_ DST on different dates in 2011.
Gaza commenced DST on Sat 2nd April, whilst Hebron commenced DST a day
earlier, on Fri 1st April (on the same date as Asia/Jerusalem, although
at a different time).
