Seriously all that this site does these days in whine continuously against the government and state, and despite the occasional brilliant article, on the whole it has descended into one long dull polemic that no-one really reads or pays attention to, apart from the usual haters of Israel, I only opened this article just to see if the situation is getting any better, but alas no. The article, by the way, is uninteresting, speculative, uninformative, and just seems to be the usual diatribe with something about settlements, the UN, Iran, the rest of the world or something, which pretty much summarises much of haaretz's fare these days, and interests extremely few people in Israel. Who do you think reads this, and who does it help? To translate (badly, admittedly, because I am not a professional translator) one of the feedbacks on the hebrew version of this article, "thank you to 'haaretz' and to the 'anonymous' writer for not missing out on the daily portion of venom"' which pretty much sums up what many people here think about haaretz, a newspaper which was fine, and has the potential to become fine again.
from the article: Israel wants Iran isolated, but instead isolates itself
