Why Ha’aretz is an Evil Newspaper

Goading and promoting Nazi comparisons is an evil discourse agenda. Done so easily, so flippantly. So carelessly. And the editor let it through.

Here’s an excerpt from the Haaretz interview with Israel’s Refrom Judaism Executive Director Gilad Kariv. Notice how the interviewer slips in the nasty question:

…there’s no point in using the prettified language of reconciliation here. There is a direct connection between the book “Torah Hamelech” and the recent lynch in Jerusalem. To get a group of youths to carry out such an attack on an Arab youth, it takes a good few years of dehumanization of the Arab. We started the month of Elul with a Molotov cocktail that burned an Arab family in the territories, and with an Arab young man lying in intensive care as a result of a pogrom.

The threshold is going up. All the time. And here there is a planned, orchestrated, ideological effort that relies entirely on the distorted structuring of relations between religion and state in Israel, which gives these rabbis immunity, and budgets, and public positions and status. There is a grand project of dehumanization of whoever is not a Jew.

And of the other in general. The Arab is number one, although now he has competition for that ranking − from the migrant worker. While we’re sitting here in this air-conditioned office, refugees and their little children are in tents in Ketziot.

Like the concentration camps Leibowitz prophesied. Yes. There is also a detention facility where dozens of African youths have been sitting for many months because no framework was found for them. We’ve negated their humanity, we’ve removed them from the circle of human beings whom we must treat with dignity. And then this fellow − You know, I don’t want to use such words in talking about Eli Yishai …

For sure, there is no “direct connection” between the book, Torat HaMelech, and the youth who carried out the vicious attack on an Arab in Zion Square although since the trial hasn’t begun, we really do not know much, neither I nor the Reform Rabbi. A Rabbi, by the way, would steer clear of such an accusation, especially during the Ten Days of Penitence.

But “concentration camps”?

Yes, Kariv considers Lebowitz his teacher even though Leibowitz though this of the sect of Reform:

Yeshayahu Leibowitz had a harsh saying about you Reform Jews. He said: “It’s very nice and all, but it’s not religion.”

To ask him about Leibowitz would seem proper. But not to repeat a calumny. Goading and promoting Nazi comparisons is an evil discourse agenda. Done so easily, so flippantly. So carelessly.

And the editor let it through.

  1. Some Zionists are truly gone. Rabbi Gilas Kariv is perfectly right in his views and I am his devoted supporter.

  2. It's defnitely not and never has been a legitimate "newspaper. It's a quasi-neoNazi paper published by the kapo-master Schocken. A hatesite, a nasty gutter-sewer press. nothing intellectual about it. Pseudo-intellectual barbaric vulagarity much rather… And all its supporters one by one. Thankfully it's losing a lot of money and hopefully it's going to go bankrupt in the near future. These "people2 have no right and legitimacy to stay in the Jewish state. Their place is in Iran, Saudi arabia, Gaza or the "new" Egypt.

  3. Hasson Alberto says:

    If you believe in democracy, to have a dissenting voice is an asset. No comparison should ever be made with the world war and its atrocities, and least of all call Haaretz newspapaer neo….or whatever. It is shameful to use such language and bodes for the future if you persist in your totalitarian views of the world. Where were you when Jews/israelis chanted on the night of selichot "death to the arbs" in front of TV cameras.
    When is the law condemning incitement and forbiding tagging be fully applied.

  4. Michael Brenner says:

    Have you seen some of the stuff on Arutz Sheva?

  5. Jo-Ann Mort says:

    Do you have a link to this?

  6. 'Haaretz' is in its editorial writer, and with significant exceptions by and large a treasonous newspaper. A good share of its editorial writers support Israel's enemies. This is not news and it is not the exclusive prerogative of the current editor. It is a long – term policy in effect so long as Amos Schocken controls the paper.

  7. We should not be compared to the Nazis as theirs was a government orchestrated program, however, the Europeans (Germans) had spent centuries thinking and speaking and preaching about Jews as "the other" and vilifying them. Can you say that we are not doing that to the Arabs? We use hate speech and incitement about our fellow Jews when we disagree with them. Are we kinder to the Arabs? Time to address the issues. Stop the name calling.

  8. convice ARENS & HAREL to use their columns to take off their gloves and attack the HAARETZ editors & journalsts.

  9. Ruth Hirt says:

    This is breaking my heart and… on tears… ];

  10. Hasson Alberto says:

    Shoshana,I fully agree with what you write.
