Summary of editorials from the Hebrew press 17-Jan-2007

Information Department, Israel Foreign Ministry - Jerusalem

(Government Press Office)
17 January 2007

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

Yediot Aharonot says that former Supreme Court Vice-President Michael Cheshin does not know what he is talking about when he accuses the media of prejudging both President Moshe Katsav and former Justice Minister Haim Ramon. The editors believe that his accusations imply a lack of faith in the judicial system.

Yediot Aharonot, in its second editorial, points out various failures by the Bush administration in its Middle East policy and suggests that President Bush do one thing right: Drop his opposition to negotiations between Israel and Syria.

Hatzofeh claims that there are double standards in law enforcement and argues that Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria being held to a stricter criteria.

Hatzofeh, in its second editorial, points out that, on her recent visit, US Secy. of State Dr. Condoleeza Rice met with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, Defense Minister Amir Peretz and Minister Avigdor Lieberman. But it would seem that none of these leaders saw it fit to discuss their meetings with the other. This lack of communication is apparent in the way Israel portrays itself both at home and abroad.

The Jerusalem Post asserts that no Negev farmer is exempt from the reign of terror imposed by Beduin gangs. The police do little, and rarely arrive even when summoned. Providing basic security is the state's paramount responsibility. In the case of what has become a vicious criminal war on Israeli agriculture, especially in the south, it is failing to meet that obligation.

Haaretz observes that PM Olmert's response to publication of documents relating to a series of understandings have been reached with Syria via a secret, informal channel creates the impression that Israel is frightened by the peace signals coming from Damascus and prefers to frighten the public with Syrian threats of war.

[Rami Tal and Haggai Hoberman wrote today's editorials in Yediot Aharonot and Hatzofeh, respectively.]
