    Please do not expect new and creative ideas from the editorial staff at Haaretz. The process of changing the means of contributing to Israel has gone through a metamorphosis in the last decade. Today the major giver is more knowledgable and does not need an umbrella organization, (which in its beginnings were not huge), to funnel his contributions to those in need on a more personal level. Today's giver can find a multitude of organizations that reflect different political, social and religious attitudes. This is not new and is part of the vital process of change. As for them running Israeli foreign policy, this is but headline crap, as shallow an argument as the kiddies pee pool. Once again Haaretz is not emulating a light bulb, but a fading neon light announcing the coming of a train that has already left the station. If this was a race of ideas, Haaretz would be wiping up the rear.
