The two-day weekend

In Israel, most people work a six-day week, having only Saturday off (though Friday is only a half-day). But now the Israeli parliament has opened discussion of extending the weekend to two full days. But which day should it be: Friday or Sunday?

The issue is well described in this International Herald Tribune article, which illustrates some of the many conflicting interests in Israeli society.
