    Europe explores sanctions against companies tied to Israel's occupation

    ven though government minister, and occupation denier, Naftali Bennett has claimed that talk of boycotts against Israel is absurd, it seems other officials in Israel are in fact worried and there is growing "concern" over the possibility of an international economic boycott of Israel.

    Investment committees for European banks are considering recommending their institutions bar loans to Israeli companies that have economic links with the Palestinian occupied territories. Check that wording, "economic links" -- this ensnares many more businesses than those directly operating within the territories.Last week, Haaretz reporter Yossi Verter referenced this as " the mother of all fears" a "nightmare scenario" and warned of an "economic tsunami".

    Danger ahead: an Israel boycott

    The magnitude of the steep price Israel's economy may be forced to pay for its continued occupation of the West Bank - and for its diplomatic inaction - is hard to overstate.

    Your source...Haaretz... has the following editorial policies.

     

    Haaretz describes itself as broadly liberal on domestic issues and international affairs.[30] Others describe it alternatively as liberal,[31][32][33][34][35] centre-left,[36] left-wing,[37][38][39] or even hard left,[40][41] According to the BBC, it has a moderate stance on foreign policy and security issues.[42] David Remnick in The New Yorker described Haaretz as "easily the most liberal newspaper in Israel", its ideology as left-wing and its temper as "insistently oppositional."[43] The newspaper's op-ed pages are open to a variety of opinions.[44]

    J. J. Goldberg, the editor of the American The Jewish Daily Forward, describes Haaretz as "Israel's most vehemently anti-settlement daily paper".[45] US weekly The Nation describes Haaretz as "Israel's liberal beacon", citing its editorials voicing opposition to the occupation, the security barrier, discriminatory treatment of Arab citizens, and the mindset that led to the Second Lebanon War.[7] Aijaz Ahmad, writing in Frontline, described Haaretz as "the most prestigious Israeli newspaper".[46]

     

    Just so anybody reading your post and the article excerpt from Haaretz can read it through the correct filter.

    those aren't haaretz editorial policies, that is just a copy and paste job from wiki. the only information taken directly from haaretz is the first citation (30) "Haaretz describes itself as broadly liberal on domestic issues and international affairs".i didn't elect to use haaretz as a source because they are "leftist" and fit my political thinking. they are the oldest isreali newspaper and a mainstream source. they were founded by russian zionists, as stated in the same wiki citation from haaretz.com, "Haaretz was founded in Jerusalem in 1919 by a group of Zionist immigrants, mainly from Russia". the filter you we are getting is of zionists who call this paper "liberal". haaretz is nothing more than the hyped up challenger in a fixed boxing match. they aren't far-left or even left, they are just slightly more honest (or slightly less dishonest) than other isreali sources. from your wiki copy job you left out... 

    Andrea Levin, executive director of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting (CAMERA), stated in 2008 that among Israelis Haaretz is seen as a "rather far-left publication" and accused the newspaper of doing "damage to the truth" and failing to correct errors.[47] Earlier, in 2001, Levin criticized Haaretz correspondent Amira Hass for inaccurate reporting and chargedHaaretz with fueling anti-Israel bias.[48] However, a 2003 study in The Harvard International Journal of Press/Politics found that Haaretz reporting was more favorable to Israelis than Palestinians and more likely to report stories from the Israeli side.[49]

    According to its competitor The Jerusalem PostHaaretz editor-in-chief David Landau said at the 2007 Limmud conference in Moscow that he had told his staff not to report about criminal investigations against Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in order to promote Sharon's 2004–2005 Gaza disengagement plan.[50][51][52]

    Those are the editorial policies of Haaretz according to Wikipedia

    You want to combat a copy and paste post with another copy and paste post?

    That makes a lot of sense.

    They may be the oldest newspaper but it is published once a week and has very low circulation in Israel.

    Your Harvard Journal cite goes back 10 years to 2003. Another cite goes back even further to 2001.

    Your most current cite is six years old.

    Nothing remotely current to bolster the credibility of Haaretz.

    This is not surprising. There has been a definite rise in anti-semitism in Europe over the course of the last couple of decades, proving yet again the absolute need to have a place like Israel exist in the world.

    Note the wording, "the Palestinian occupied territories."

    They got that one right.

    Hey Skeet.  Palestinians are allowed to occupy sections of the West Bank (Jordan will grind them into sausage on the East Bank), Gaza an Golan (Syria just adores them too) the the Pals lost because the thought Egypt, Jordan and Syria were their friend.  Lost the land in 6 days and their new "friends" just said, "Ooops".

    Oh dear lord. Palestine fell in the 16th century. The Ottomons owned that land until the British took it from them. The British were then involved in setting up Israel.

    Absolutley!

    The Jordanians have the palestinians in horrible refugee camps instead of letting them become patriots and simulate

    -------------------------------

    Might have something to do with Pal terrorists habit of killing Jordanian kings.  That tends to make people edgy.

    "according to wikipedia"... very misleading of you to leave that out in the first place. from your same wiki source...

    Compared to other mass circulation papers in IsraelHaaretz uses smaller headlines and print. Less space is devoted to pictures, and more to political analysis. Its editorial pages are considered influential among government leaders.[4] Apart from the news, Haaretz publishes feature articles on social and environmental issues, as well as book reviews, investigative reporting, and political commentary. In 2008 the newspaper itself reported a paid subscribership of 65,000, daily sales of 72,000 copies, and 100,000 on weekends.[5] The English edition has a subscriber base of 15,000.[6][7] As of June 2011, readership was 5.8% of the public, down from 6.4% the prior year.[8]

    Despite its relatively low circulation in Israel, Haaretz is considered Israel's most influential daily newspaper.[9][10][11][12] Its readership includes Israel's intelligentsia and its political and economic elites.[13][14][15] Surveys show that Haaretz readership has a higher-than-average education, income, and wealth; most are Ashkenazim.[7][16] Shmuel Rosner, the newspaper's former U.S. correspondent, told The Nation that "people who read it are better educated and more sophisticated than most, but the rest of the country doesn't know it exists".[7]
