Today in Haaretz
Today's editorial in Haaretz offers a rationale for Palestinian terror attacks emanating from Gaza, explaining: "Those who thought that the unilateral withdrawal from Gaza would end the violence from Gaza apparently failed to understand that Gaza and the West Bank are a single Palestinian entity that is fighting the occupation."
Haaretz also published today an op-ed by an Israeli (Esther Zandberg) stating that a boycott of Israeli companies "might not be too extreme a measure" and "could have a positive reverberating effect on all sides."
Not to be outdone, also in today's Haaretz appears an op-ed by Shulamit Aloni, who charges Israel with "a racist, colonialist and contemptible policy." Aloni writes that Israeli generals like Shaul Mofaz and Moshe Ya'alon "launch provocative acts of aggression on the lands of the West Bank, and continue assassinations while ruining or murdering innocent people."
Last but not least, Haaretz published a "report" critical of Israel's separation fence in the area of the southern Hebron Hills. While briefly noting at the end that the original route of the fence in that area has been significantly reduce after an Israeli Supreme Court ruling, leaving most of the settlements in the area outside the fence and unprotected, the "report" complains that the fence will still encompass three Hebron Hills settlements near the Green Line.
