I used to freak out too when I'd read Ha'aretz but I have come to realize that it is just an alarmist mouthpiece for an agenda, not unlike BBC, The Guardian or Al Jazeera. The family that owns the outlet think that if they apply enough partisan pressure, they will force their cause though. My grandfather told me always to look to the stock market, because money sees trouble coming before politicians, pundits and the media. Life is good, the economy is robust, the shekel is strong. The world doesn't hate us, that is just what Ha'aretz want you to think so that you are cowed and embarrassed into supporting their point of view. There is anti-Semitism in Europe, but there always has been. Trying to correlate it to anything Israel or Jewish people do is to negate the nature of anti-Semitism: THEY HATE US BECAUSE WE ARE, NOT BECAUSE WE DO! So screw them. They are going to hate us anyway. We know what we have to do. We are the best at it. Lets enjoy life and get on with it.
