    Dear Mr. Schoken, There is a proverb in Russian: "Don't blame your mirror if you're not looking beautiful". I suggest you to apply this proverb to your case. Both journalists which you mentioned are distinguished with either historical ignorance (Gidon Levi) or automatic prejudice against Israel (Amira Hess). After reading of their completely detached-from-the-facts articles (in Internet Haaretz edition) I plainly rejected proposals (made from time to time in bookshops upon a significant purchase) to get 1-month long Haaretz subscription for free! I believe that the primary problem with these journalists is rather low level of intelligence and education (in contrary to their glibness and talkativeness). I stand behind this statement, because I guess that my educational and knowledge is "slightly" higher than those of average Haaretz journalist (I derive that conclusion from familiarity with their writings). That is why among my friends Haaretz is considered as nothing more than "yellow press" for left-wing population. Your newspaper actually degraded together with that population - which (according to Bernard Levi) is no more the liberal one (as it was in the XIX century and in the most of the XX century), but merely strives to "punish" the world for its incompliance with their ideals. BTW the word "ideal" itself is not necessary sounds positively - let's remember that Herr Hitler and Herr Goebbels were idealists in every meaning of that word. Mr. Schoken, I suggest you thinking about your positioning. This is not due to "incorrect public". This is due to the detachment of your newspaper from the reality around. Let me know if you need more clarifications about some points which may seen obscure to you. Thanks, Victor

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
