Yediot Ahronot predicts anti-regime unrest in Syria especially if the US moves for the imposition of sanctions on Damascus given Syria’s involvement in terrorism and Iraq and President Bashar Assad’s possible personal involvement in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. The editors ask, “What will Syria do under pressure? It is likely to either go crazy or capitulate,” and urge the Government to prepare for a worst-case scenario. Yediot Ahronot, in its second editorial, criticizes the narrow interpretation of the law on compensating terrorist victims and their families which has prevented the families of the four Israeli Arabs who were murdered by a Jewish terrorist in Shfaram from being compensated under the law. The editors believe that this is part of the general discrimination against Israeli Arabs. BPI-info
