(.). ______________________________ SUMMARY OF EDITORIALS FROM THE HEBREW PRESS Hatzofeh criticizes the IDF for not responding to Monday’s Kassam rocket attack against Sderot. The editors note that the several planned terrorist attacks were narrowly averted in recent weeks and asks, „Are Sharon and his Defense Minister waiting until Jewish blood is spilled before they react?” Yediot Ahronot suggests that, „The election campaign for the next Knesset will begin the day after the Disengagement Plan is completed.” The editors believe that, „In no election campaign up to now have the parties reached the finish line so broken up, so hated by the voting public, so directionless and so aimless,” and discern two main reasons for this: „The ideological rift: (.). The Likud, broken and confused, even if it goes to the elections unified, will not succeed in hiding its cracks – the group that continues to dream vs., the group whose sole interest is power. The rift in the Labor Party is also severe – it has become clear that the vision of a quick peace is baseless. The personal rift: In recent years, Israeli politics has been penetrated by sub-standard people who see politics mainly as a source of income, who have led to its being held in contempt and to the moving away of better people from academia, the business world and the army.” Yediot Ahronot, in its second editorial, refers to the outgoing IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Moshe Yaalon’s personal animus against Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz, reminds the former that, „Anger is a poor adviser,” and advises him to hold his peace until he has actually been discharged. Yediot Ahronot, in its third editorial, comments on the recent dismissal of Israel Broadcasting Authority Yosef Barel. BPI-info
