Turns out that Haaretz did report the story of the Negev police commander, but as usual, left out important facts. Haaretz reports: "Police Commissioner Moshe Karadi ordered Negev region Commander Niso Shaham on Sunday to explain himself to him, after he called right-wing demonstrators at Kfar Maimon "shits" and said he hoped they burn." No mention is made that on the same tape broadcast nationally on Channel 10, Shacham was recorded telling Border Guard officers to beat the anti-disengagement protestors in Kfar Maimon with clubs in the "lower part of their bodies;" cursing what he called "these hareidim." He also said that he wants "lots of arrests," and used various vulgarities in referring to how he wanted them treated. The conversation was broadcast on Channel Ten on Thursday night. (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/news.php3?id=86391) The Haaretz article is much sympathetic to Shacham's being tired, as if tiredness can excuse these statements. But of course, the tiredness could excuse the use of profanities, which is all Haaretz bothered reporting.
