The editors criticize statements made against Bashi comparing him to Nazi officials and say that, If anything happens to Bashi or anyone else involved in implementing the [disengagement plan], it will be impossible to talk about weeds, as Yigal Amir was described in the aftermath of the Rabin assassination. Hatzofeh says that Yonatan Bashi does not embody the religious Zionist movement and that he should not be given the power to damage a group that has been so prominent in the establishment and development of the State of Israel. __________ Yediot Ahronot, in its second editorial, clarifies an editorial from last Thursday, and quotes Northern District Police Commander Yaakov Borovsky as saying that he treats Arabs and Jews alike. Hatzofeh, in its second editorial, comments that Europe has always been anti-Semitic, and that today its anti-Semitism is expressed via anti-Israeli sentiments. The editors call on the government not to allow Europe to have greater involvement in the Middle East conflict since, Europe was, and continues to be, the anti-Semitic capital of the world. BPI.
