Great Comment on: L'Affair de Burg'

MK Otniel Schneller (Kadima) said Thursday that former Knesset speaker Avraham Burg, after his comments about Israel and Zionism must be prevented through legislation if necessary from being buried in the section in the Jerusalem cemetery on Mount Herzl reserved for national leaders.

"He should look for a grave in another country," the MK said, though Burg is not yet dead.

Burg will be entitled to a burial reserved for national leaders both because he served as head of the Jewish Agency, and because he was Knesset speaker.
