    As I read Mr. Schocken's op-ed, it seemed that all the evils in Israel are explained by this dychotomical, Gush Emunim ideology versus the rest of Israel. Among the many players left out of this Gog versus Magog reality, of the "apartheidization" of Israel, both within the Green Line (which isn't the case) and beyond the Green Line (which is the case to a significant extent), is global anti-Semitism. It has a dynamic that is independent of whatever Jews or the Jewish state, does or doesn't. For too many years, Haaretz has catered to their vocipherous masses by means of its talkback. It all too often also plays apartheid: it gives the most vicious anti-Semites a "preferential costumer" status at talkbacks, while it censors thos who decry it. Will this post see the light of Mr. Schocken's Haaretz? I don't know.
