For Nik Miller. I do not think 'Haaretz's' political line is dictated by a need for advertising revenues. The longtime owner of 'Haaretz' Amos Schocken sets the tone for the paper. Gideon Levy, Amira Hass, Meron Benvenisti are perhaps to the left of Mr.Schocken but apparently not that far from him. These three alone have done great damage to Israel. 'Haaretz' does publish the opinions of Moshe Arens, Israel Harel, Ari Shavit, but primarily their line is ' far left' because of Schocken. I might point out in this regard it is necessary to consider that 'far right articles' could also provoke 'revenue' though they do not appear in 'Haaretz'. For Lakshmi. I do not know exactly what you are getting at. Israel wants peace, and is willing to make territorial sacrifices for it. That has been its position for close to sixty years. However it now is in a situation where it has no one to negotiate with . 'Islamism' is calling the shots in the Arab and wider Islamic world.
