The Knesset was expected on Wednesday to approve the establishment of a parliamentary investigative committee assigned to study the violence seen during the destruction of the nine structures in Amona last week. Opposition parties from both the right and the left overcame legal obstacles preventing the move, occurring while the Knesset is in recess ahead of the elections, allowing the establishment of the committee in spite of Kadima's objection, according to Army Radio. MK Uri Ariel (National Union) stated: The committee will determine whether Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was telling the truth, or whether there were inaccuracies or lies. "If it is found that I was not telling the truth, I will resign from the Knesset," he promised.
