SUMMARY OF OP-EDS FROM THE HEBREW PRESS
Yediot Ahronot implores, „Where
has the Iron Dome disappeared to?  After such a successful performance about
three months ago, which surprised even the developers of this active defense
system, we thought that that’s it, we won’t see any more rockets falling here,
at least not on the Gaza-adjacent communities.  And here in the past two weeks
rockets are dropping in from the Gaza Strip, the Air Force is again operating
over Gaza, the ping-pong game of rocket fire followed by retaliation has
returned – and Iron Dome?  As if the earth has swallowed it up.”
Ma’ariv professes that, „The
press of ‘like’ on Facebook against cottage cheese [prices] and the campfire
against apartment prices in Tel Aviv merely prove that there is a lack of real
social protest in Israel.”
Yisrael Hayom maintains that,
„Americas Jews are distancing themselves from Obama, but in the 2012 election
campaign, the identity of the Republican candidate will have an influence.  An
extremist candidate would distance even the Jews who oppose Obama.”
