    I read the "talkbacks" in HAARETZ because I am curious as to what other people have to say, and how they react, to serious situations which Israel faces. If I wanted to read a one-sided "rubber stamp" talkback, I would switch to Arutz Sheva (A7.org). By the way, the Jerusalem Post and Yehdiot Aharonot (Ynetnews.com) also have talkbacks, some of which I am sure that you would find offensive. I do not know in what part of Texas you reside but I guess that your local Texas newspaper has "Letters to the Editor." The only difference is that a postage stamp is not required to use talkbacks. You are probably the kind of person that gets very upset when someone else expresses an opinion that is different from yours.
