Summary of editorials from the Hebrew press 30-Jan-2007

Information Department, Israel Foreign Ministry - Jerusalem

(Government Press Office)
30 January 2007

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

Yediot Aharonot suggests that "The ISA and the IDF are victims of their own success: So many counter-terrorist actions have spoiled the Israeli public to the point where it does not understand - and does not want to understand - that every counter-terrorist action is a miracle from Heaven, in addition to the amazing work of the anonymous agents, coordinators and soldiers to whom we owe a tremendous debt of gratitude." The paper believes that "They [suicide terrorists] will continue to die and we will apparently continue to pay a heavy price."

Yediot Aharonot, in its second editorial, says that "Shimon Peres must be the first one to reject the proposal" to change the law and have MKs elect the President in an open vote even if the proposal is designed to pave the way for Peres to be elected President. The editors believe that he is well suited for the position but nevertheless declare that, "There is something amiss in personal laws that are designed for a particular person."

Yediot Ahronot, in its third editorial, speculates that the Winograd Committee report will lead to bitter recriminations.

Hatzofeh calls on President Moshe Katsav to resign forthwith. The editors assert that "The current situation is contemptuous for all sides, both the Knesset that approved the temporary incapacity and the President, who sits in his Residence, lacking authority and knowing that an indictment is hanging over his head."

Haaretz commends finance ministry plans to institute a four-step socio-economic reform meant to improve the distribution of wealth in the economy, lower the number of poor, create a compulsory pension plan for every worker and also to encourage employment.

The Jerusalem Post notes that all Palestinian factions agree that they should not be killing one other, but Israelis. The policy of Israel and other countries of encouraging "moderation" needs to be reexamined, and methods found promote real, not just relative, moderation among Palestinians.

[Eitan Haber and Nitzan Keidar wrote today's editorials in Yediot Ahronot and Hatzofeh, respectively.]
