Haaretz continues its mad rush from Israel's most serious newspaper to its most laughable. Today's' exhibit is its report on a meeting two days ago between Obama and 37 Jewish lawmakers, most of them Democrats. If you read Haaretz in English, it was a pleasant affair, at which the president made assuring noises about his administration's commitment to Israel etc etc etc. Here, see for yourself.
If however you read the Hebrew side of Haaretz, the meeting was more interesting. Obama admitted that he had made mistakes in how he approached negotiations for peace in the region, Joe Lieberman and perhaps others told him to his face that he needed to do things otherwise, and so on. Here, see for yourself.
Now since Haaretz never thought Obama was making any mistakes unless perhaps that he wasn't being forceful enough against Israel, it's easy to see why they'd now downplay any backtracking he might make. Yet the downplaying didn't happen in their Hebrew side - perhaps because they knew the meeting was going to make front-page news in some of the Hebrew-language newspapers, as it indeed did.
I wish I could cancel my subscription to the paper, but we already have.
