      PM Mourns Society for Protection of Nature Founder


      Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu expressed sorrow, Sunday, at the passing of Azaria Alon, one of the founders of the Society for the Protection of Nature. Netanyahu said, "Like many people, I was raised listening to Azaria Alon's radio show, which described the charming spots of our country, their flora and fauna. I read his books and articles. His words were always clear and full of content and knowledge."

      The prime minister added, "Azaria was the member of a well-rooted Zionist and Israeli family ... He had a great effect on the love of country by teaching, as a tour guide and a counselor for learning the land."
