    The bottom line is the Shin Bet made a deal which was legally binding. If they feel the right to back out of that deal, it is the end of democracy and the beginning of a police state (which many people -- and not just Arabs and their sympathizers -- feel already exists). So, stand your ground because I know of no case in Israel's history that, depending on how it turns out, will have greater implications for the future of legal limits to the power of the security establishment -- the very thing that most essentially defines democracy. Haaretz also made a mistake agreeing to that deal and should have gone to court & had the matter decided by an independent judge, who would then have been able to hold the Shin Bet sanctionable, which Haaretz is now powerless to do. This is good news for haters of Israel because it allows them to show Israel is the police state they always said it was, bad news for those who believe the security establishment works for the people, not the other way around
