Savile said: "I arrived at this reception and I was wearing a pinkish suit with short sleeves. When the president came to me, he asked how I was enjoying my visit to Israel.
"I said I was very disappointed: the Israelis had won the Six Day War but they had given back all the land, including the only oil well in the region, and were now paying the Egyptians more for oil than if they had bought it from Saudi Arabia.
"I said: 'You have forgotten to be Jewish'. He said: 'Would you like to tell my cabinet that?'
"Next morning, I went to the Knesset and they interrupted a cabinet meeting and I told them the same as I had told him."
Roger Ordish, Savile's BBC producer and co-creator of Jim'll Fix It, said: "I know he met the President when we were in Israel in 1975. And he did the same thing at Chequers with the Blairs as he did with the Thatchers."
