The freedom of speech and the israeli press
"Arutz 7" [i.e. the Seventh
Channel] shown as a viper snake !,
published in Israeli newspaper "Yediot Hachronot", 8 July 1998..
This could be typical of the "support" of the left-wing Israeli media to the sole right-wing and religious radio ! Freedom of speech ? Yes, only if you think like me !

PRAISE FOR ACHIMEIR
Professors for a Strong Israel had warm words of praise for veteran television and radio news personality Yaakov Achimeir, for his "professional honesty." Achimeir said yesterday, in a phone call to Arutz-7 during the station's annual telethon, that he does not understand the silence of his colleagues in light of the interrogation of the Arutz-7 journalists. "If a different ideological body had been involved, it is likely that they would not have been so silent," Achimeir said. Professors for a Strong Israel said that Achimeir's words stand out against the background of the "screaming silence of Israel's journalists on this topic."

an article about Arutz 7 (up side), an article about
Baruch Goldstein (left down side) [who killed muslem
people in prayer at Hebron a few years ago] and an
article with a photography (right down side) about Ygal

There is no doubt that the intentional proximity of the articles was to show a so-called link between Arutz 7 radio religious right-wing policy and the two murderers (also religious right-wing activists).
