For many years I have read the columns in Ha'aretz of Zeev Schiff and always found his columns were the only non-biased, non-partisan straightforward analysis of the situation in Israel. It was a always a special treat for me to find his column available when I would read Ha'Aretz online. Too many columnists color their opinions from a left wing or right wing perspective. Mr. Schiff always had a clear, cogent analysis devoid of any political parties opinions. He will be sorely missed not only by readers but by those in charge of the IDF and Israeli governments from all sides of the political roundtable.
