    I can understand and appreciate HaAretz view point of what is the best way to have true peace between Jewish Israel and the Islamic countries surrounding Israel. Debate and different ideas are a healthy component in a vibrant democracy, But for HaAretz to gain acceptance within the greater Jewish world it must also have on its editorial staff and publish their viewpoint with the same regularity opposing opinions, it must also stop denigrating labels to the groups or elements of Israeli that they disagree with. As I understand news media duties and obligations is to print and publish the news as it occurs without the personal biases espoused by their reporters. Your editorials are not only distorted but are incendiary most of which express the prejudices of certain individuals which by its vicious attacks against segments of Israeli societies only distances their readers and thus does not really make it conducive to any intelligent debate. Many talkbacks are single line hate inspired idiotic expressions
