Defending his controversial plan to bring school children to Hebron's Cave of the Patriarchs, Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar told the Knesset on Wednesday that "anyone who cedes the symbols, the holy things and their roots," has no chance of standing for anything.

He said that his decision "will allow the youth to better familiarize themselves with our past and also strengthens the future." The minister added, "I am sure that demand [for the tours] will be higher than what we'll be able to implement."
