Summary of Editorials from the Hebrew Press - Jan 1, 2007

(Government Press Office)
28 December 2006

Haaretz - Ma'ariv - Yediot Aharonot - Globes - Hazofe - Jerusalem Post -

Haaretz writes: "Some 300 Sudanese refugees who succeeded in escaping the genocide in Darfur infiltrated into Israel last year. It would have been natural to assume that the Jewish state - which still recalls the Jewish refugees knocking on the West's doors during the Holocaust - would absorb these refugees. Unfortunately, it seems that a deep process of dulling the senses has overtaken Israeli society: The country is using a range of bizarre methods to deport the refugees or keep them in jail. Israel should open its gates, and also its heart, to the refugees. If there are grounds for security fears, the authorities should conduct all necessary checks, but should not see this as grounds for a sweeping rejection of all the refugees."

The Jerusalem Post comments on the execution of Saddam Hussein in Iraq: "We do not know if there might have been better ways to organize Saddam's trial or to manage his execution. On its face, the trial seemed to provide ample opportunity for the accused to defend himself. From a moral point of view, it is hard to imagine a fair trial reaching any other verdict. We can now hope that Saddam's followers will give up any dreams they might have had of being restored to power, and that this will aid efforts to improve security in Iraq."

Yediot Aharonot mentions the movie, "Man of the Year" in which a comedian decides to run for President and wins. The editors says that this movie makes clear beyond all doubt that should Israelis fail to choose a serious candidate with values, they will awaken to a nightmare similar to the one portrayed in the movie.

Yediot Aharonot in its second editorial, says that Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni is rising from among the brand-name political crowd as an interesting alternative. "Livni gives rise to the feeling that today she is the only one in the political echelons who is beginning to understand how to march Israel forward [kadima]."

Hatzofeh discusses the hanging of former Iraqi despot Saddam Hussein and notes the various reactions around the world.

[Yael Gvirtz and Moshe Eishon wrote today's editorials in Yediot Aharonot and Hatzofeh, respectively.]
