    The contentious case of Uri Blau, vis a vis secret military documents, has no doubt become another source of media feeding frenzy. I do agree that Haaretz did well in advising said journalist to remain in the UK. On the contrary to what Prof.Dershowitz implied, any decent lawyer would advise his client on the proper procedure, in this instance, Mr.Blau has been told to stay put. For if the censorship machinery made a mistake, one can be sure that, now, they will seek blood. For they will use every method conceivable in order to have Mr.Blau arrested and a long drawn out trial which could well last figuratively speaking, forever. Meanwhile the accused will spend his days/months/years in jail. Maybe most will not agree, however Haaretz continues to polish its image as the true jewel of the M.E. Good day from snowy Swiss Alps.
