    Default Things that Haaretz won't tell you!

    Haaretz is a left-leaning newspaper, practically a fifth column in Israel.

    It co-operates with "Beace Now" and published whatever provokes controversy in Israel.

    That's why one couldn't have read about the verdict against pro-terrorist activists:

    Peace Now to Pay and Apologize for Maligning Town - Inside Israel - Israel News - Israel National News

    excerpts:

    (IsraelNN.com) The Peace Now organization and activists Hagit Ofran and Dror Atkis must pay residents of Judea and Samaria and issue a public apology, Jerusalem Magistrates Court judge Yechezkel Barclay ruled Thursday. The group was punished for a false report involving the Samaria town of Revava.

    When Peace Now refused to apologize, the Fund sued the organization with the help of Attorney Doron Nir Tzvi. The group charged Peace Now and authors Ofran and Etkes with slander.
    The court found the three defendants guilty. Besides ordering them to apologize, Justice Barclay ruled that they must pay the Fund for Redeeming the Land 20,000 shekels plus tax. The group's apology must be public, and must be published in both Maariv and Haaretz.
    The book totally contradicts any post-modern theory claiming a “Palestinian heritage,” or Palestinian nation. https://palestineisraelconflict.word...-palestinians/

    Sorry, I fell into such convulsions of laughter at your opening line that I couldn't read the rest of your joke.
    Thanks for the giggle!

    And this really warrants its own thread
    Anyway how could anyone take any of the media outlets in the whole middle east region seriously?

    Haaretz is a newspaper that considers first the views of the enemeies of Israel.

    It's full of bias towrds the Arabs, and it employs Gidon Levy, who's a renowned antizionist et al.

    Come to think of it, fifth column is an understatement!

    Ooh, look. Mossad's long weekend is over. Yanshuf is back at his desk, scouring bulletin boards worldwide for anti-Israel thoughtcrimes.

    That's rubbish. Haaretz is a respected newspaper with an international reputation. To somehow suggest that because of their left leaning editorial line that they are somehow traitors goes against every principle of free speech and democracy. Values the adherence to which Israel trumpets loudly and rightly so. Because some one doesn't share your viewpoint they are some how out to aid the enemies of Israel is the first step on the slippery slope to McCarthyism and witch hunting of those who are insufficiently loud in their nationalism.

    The original 5th column was a fascist group which Franco claimed was operating inside Spanish left wing groups. It probably didn't exist.

    Its a pity that Israelis are so ignorant about history.

    I agree with you Clanrickard.

    Perhaps Yanshuf needs to google "Israel" + "siege mentality"....he will find some spot-on descriptions of himself.

    When a newspaper deliberately avoids publishing one side of the story and takes systematically the other side, then its guilty of self-censorship! as simple as that.

    The original 5th column was a fascist group which Franco claimed was operating inside Spanish left wing groups. It probably didn't exist.
    We're not dealing with the etymology of expressions, but in its synchronic meaning.

    Perhaps Yanshuf needs to google "Israel" + "siege mentality"....he will find some spot-on descriptions of himself.
    Perhaps instead of looking in google for that, I will just look for more reports Haarets eludes of publishing, and expose Haarets' hypocrisy of transparency?!

    That's rubbish. Haaretz is a respected newspaper with an international reputation.
    And have you asked yourself why is that?
    If you looked into what is usually quoted from this newspaper, you'd see that it's mostly the same old rants exposed by biased "reporters", who's anti-Israeli tendencies are what make them so popular.

    Ooh, look. Mossad's long weekend is over. Yanshuf is back at his desk, scouring bulletin boards worldwide for anti-Israel thoughtcrimes.
    Out of your padded room again?
