Ultra-right Party Goes Underground - to Convene in Old City Cave

Around 100 members attend convention of splinter party whose platform asserts that Jordan is the Palestinian state.

Perhaps in reaction to the Likud and Labor conventions, with their stars and their deal-making, MK Aryeh Eldad's Hatikva party opted to hold its convention at an archaeological site on Thursday: Zedekiah's Cave, located under the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City. Describing his colleagues' reaction to the choice, Eldad admitted, "They were sure I was psychotic."
