A correspondent from the Jewish Herald quotes Begin drawing attention to the Government tendency to attempt to muzzle Parliamentary debates on the matters of vital public concern by the expedient of making a statement from the rostrum of the Knesset—and refusing to have any further discussion. Begin is quoted specifically speaking about Nasser's intentions to annihilate Israel. He concludes that the Government has prevented the Opposition from discussing Nasser's plans. Begin concludes saying that if the Government does not speak up, the Opposition will.
