Haaretz is a middle brow newspaper published in Israel in Hebrew. The online version is in English and Hebrew. It is written for very different constituencies. Most Hebrew readers will be Jews. The English version goes worldwide and can be accessed by those who do not admire Zionists. Haaretz feeds us evidence to show they are right beyond all reasonable doubt. But to get access to all of their depravity you have to read the Hebrew version.
How do they serve different masters, or rather address different audiences? One answer is to censor the English version. I suspected this. The versions below show it. Haaretz is a propaganda machine but then most media operations are. For example the BBC is left wing, grossly racist and incites Homosexuality. It is cunning enough to look superficially even handed. But this is a case against Haaretz.
Haaretz gives us some of the dirt in the English version and rather more in the version that Jews use get to see. The English version can be highly incriminating regarding the realities in Israel. So the Hebrew version will be damning. There are Zionists who complain that it tells us anything incriminating.
PS Haaretz was a goldmine of evil done by Jews. Now [ 2011 ] it is being censored after a policy change.
The Wikipedia tells us about it. The Wikipedia is also an outfit with an agenda which it does not want you to know. It is run by Zionist Jews, just like most of the Western media. Haaretz has around 5% of the market in occupied Palestine and some 2 million visitors a month for the English version. It is thought to be influential.
Haaretz Tells The Truth. A Jew Whines About It
Isi Leibler is a Zionist Jew complaining that Haaretz is a useful source for people who do not like Jewish goings on in Israel. He is right on that. He then claims that they lie. But he is does not give any examples. His lack of evidence is an admission that Haaretz tells the truth and a very ugly truth at that. Is Leibler ashamed of Jewish evil? Not a chance.
Israel deliberately destroyed Arab archaeological sites
This article was never going to please Zionists and that means it was never going to make it into the main stream media of England or America. Perhaps the Hebrew version is more to the point; I do not know but it was not found on their front page or on a search for the author or headline. They are not that keen on telling us about Zionist evil.
Israel Shahak And Media Lies
He began publishing translations of the Hebrew press into English, alongside his own commentaries, arguing that Western activists needed better knowledge about conditions in Israel, and that the English-language editions of Hebrew newspapers were being intentionally distorted for Western audiences. This practice, along with writing letters to the editor, remained staples of his work for decades.
Professor Shahak had a track record they couldn't knock. They hated what he said about them though.
Looking Behind Ha'aretz's Liberal Image
QUOTE ex Ran HaCohen
A new Israeli web-site, supported by two major settlers' sites from the West Bank and Gaza Strip, is dedicated to the holy cause of "encouraging and supporting the employment of Jews only". It is already listing dozens of Israeli firms that do not employ "Gentiles". In the first months of the Intifada, Israeli racists initiated a boycott of Arab shops and restaurants; now, employment of Arabs is targeted.... the point I want to make now is, that most of you haven't heard of this web-site. Right?
The site is neither confidential nor is it my discovery: I simply read about it in the Hebrew Haaretz a few days ago (24.9.02). But most of you could not. Why? Because this item was left out of Haaretzdaily.com, the English version of Haaretz.
Racism in Israel? Blatant racism among God's Chosen People? Disgraceful isn't it?
CAMERA = Campaign for Accurate Middle East Reporting in America
Sells itself as an honest source. Most media operations do not make that specific claim. But not everyone is convinced. Source Watch tells us that:-
In one of its media alerts, it describes Israel's acclaimed historian Benny Morris as a "fabricator". It's other targets include Robert Fisk, Israel Shahak, Edward Said, Norman Finkelstein, John Pilger, Ilan Pappe, Amira Hass and Gideon Levy, and has even accused Israel's prominent daily Haaretz of fuelling "anti-Israel bias".
Anyone who claims that Professor Finkelstein is wrong goes down in my estimation. He has been heavily criticised for telling the truth. I am also disposed to believe Edward Said and Israel Shahak.
The one face of Haaretz
This writer, a Jew tells us that Haaretz does not censor the English version but he is vague on specifics. He does claim however that Ran HaCohen [ he of Looking Behind Ha'aretz's Liberal Image ] is known to be unreliable. He fails to convince.
UPDATED - Haaretz Indifferent to Journalistic Norms
This is CAMERA again. Read for yourself. Think for yourself. Decide for yourself.
PS Jew only roads do sound like gross racism.
Is an honest Jew and a journalist which makes him unusual and important in the public arena albeit he has been muzzled somewhat by a power play. That is what Jews do to anyone decent.
Bint Jbeil on Gideon Levy
The following articles written by Gideon Levy, an honest and sincere Israeli journalist, in the Haaretz, one of the most circulated Israeli newspaper, expose a little of Israel's racist and criminal face by telling some of the Palestinians sufferings under the Zionists occupation.
Throughout these articles, you will find gruesome accounts of the Israeli "Justice", "Equality" and great "Democracy" (an ethnic democracy, a Jew-docracy, as called by Knesset member, Ahmad Tibi)!!!
Bint Jbeil is a Palestinian outfit. If they seem to be annoyed by the reality of Zionism it is easy to understand. Seeing your family murdered can do that.
Ha’aretz Suppresses The Truth About Torture In Israel
"Prison interrogation techniques in Israel: Now you are paralyzed, as we promised"
"We have to make you do a little sports," the Shin Bet interrogator said, launching four successive days of questioning accompanied by brutal physical torture. The result: Luwaii Ashqar can no longer stand on his feet.............. He entered prison sound of body and mind and emerged a broken man. For four days and four nights nonstop, he says, he was interrogated and subjected to torture of the most brutal kind. The result is the person we see before us in the wheelchair , in the elegant home high in the village of Saida, north of Tul Karm, which was placed at his disposal by a friend after he was released from Israeli prison a month ago.
Ha'aretz is the main stream Jewish newspaper that tells some of the truth some of the time. This is not one of the times. Use their search engine or Google's to look for the title and draw blank. Search for the victim's name and get nothing. They report evil but mainly for home consumption. Their Hebrew version is more to the point than it is on line in English.
Haaretz and Censorship
Someone else looks the Haaretz track record.
Protected by the “system”
Jews attack Arabs maliciously with the enthusiastic connivance of police and army. Amira Hass writes for Haaretz in honest mode.
More on Israeli Democracy
It is characteristic of regimes led by military juntas, that artistic protest events are broken up by military police on the flimsiest of pretext. Even I was shocked when I read the following article from Haaretz, about an army police attack on a photo exhibition on war crimes in Hebron. The Israeli army has really sunk to a new low in its relationship to Israeli society (it can't sink much lower vis-à-vis the Palestinians).
Haaretz in honest mode again.
long, dry summer
by Gideon Levy
Cutting off the water supply is very effective harassment. Haaretz tells it like it is.
interview with IDF Chief of Staff Moshe Ya'alon
[ IMRA: If one only has time to read one item this week - or perhaps month -this is the one. COS Ya'alon spells out Israel's battle for survival against Palestinians committed to the destruction of Israel in stages and warns of the consequences of signaling national weakness.]
Haaretz and IMRA [ Independent Media Review Analysis - it is a Zionist front operation - Editor ] feed us the party line. We now KNOW that the Iraq had nukes is a fairy story.
two faces of Haaretz
Jonathan Cook / Electronic Intifada
Israel's leading "liberal" newspaper, Haaretz, has received numerous accolades from its foreign readers... for its coverage of the Intifada. Prize-winning journalists Amira Hass and Gideon Levy have won an enthusiastic audience abroad since their reports started being regularly translated into English three years ago, contributing to the newspaper's image as Israel's conscience. For many outside Israel, Haaretz is their main window on the Jewish state....
commentators have noted, the Hebrew edition of the paper has drifted
rightwards, in line with the rest of Israeli society.... Other
analysts pinpoint another phenomenon: the tendency of Haaretz
to say one thing to its Hebrew-reading audience (Israelis) and quite
another thing to its English-reading audience (mostly non-Israelis).
Ran HaCohen, in his regular "Letter from Israel," has
the corruption of the newspaper's professional standards,
revealing what can only be characterized as an attempt to deceive
foreign readers about the moral state of the Israeli polity.
HaCohen points to the omission of Intifada stories that might cast an unsympathetic light on Israel as well as the wilful mistranslation of passages that reveal the depth and extent of racist attitudes towards Palestinians now prevalent in Israel.
reader, as Israel slides ever deeper into a morass of racism and
ethnic solipsism, please do not lean too heavily on Haaretz
to understand how or why this "light unto the nations" has
grown so dim.
What can I add to that? The article is well worth reading in its entirety.
Reporter Claims Sharon Murdered His First Wife
Powerful suspicions that Sharon eliminated his first wife and possibly his first son are widespread. Not so ironically, the accusers are mostly from the "disengagement" supporters of the Left, who made them when Sharon was their bogeyman, not hero.
Murdering family is a gross betrayal. Haaretz is not pulling its punches too much.
Nazi hunter lost in translation
It turns out that the Jews knew full well that the Wiesenthal mob was onto a nice little earner. The rest of us got the sycophantic drivel.
Mark Elf - Jew Sans Frontieres
Here's another example of the Hebrew version of Haaretz containing more than the English translation:
The Jerusalem office of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre is headed by Dr. Efraim Zuroff. In his "hunting trips" against the few Nazi war criminals who are still alive, he can be seen as Wiesenthal's true successor.
The centre itself, however, has long since become an international brand, and [its founder Rabbi Marvin] Hier has become a celebrity who likes rubbing shoulders with royalty and international leaders. As a result, Hier has also become a serious fund-raiser leading to five more branches of the centre, and a forthcoming Museum of Tolerance in Jerusalem. [Yuk]
The Hebrew, however, continues:
to the displeasure of Yad Vashem Museum.
Only years after the establishment of the centre in Los Angeles Wiesenthal understood that Rabbi Hier and his assistants had turned his name into a money producing plant. Hier gave in [to an obvious pressure from S. Wiesenthal who demanded his part of the spoils – se] and since then till his death the glorified Nazi hunter got a pension from the institute bearing his name.
Regulars here and Hebrew readers will know that this is not a first for Haaretz.

Israeli Prime Minister Says World Opinion Is The Greatest Threat To The Bandit State Of Israel [ 21 January 2012 ]Haaretz’ and world opinion are now greatest threat to Israel, Netanyahu reportedly said
‘NYT’ and ‘
This is interesting. A year or so back, Netanyahu said that Israel's greatest threats were Hamas and Iran and Richard Goldstone. Now he has apparently revised that assessment and said that Israel's greatest enemies are Haaretz [ an Israeli main stream newspaper which claims from time to time that Palestinians have human rights ] and the New York Times,per this account.
I have to believe that Netanyahu is serious and this is his logical conclusion-- which is why his office rushed to deny the account today. But the original assessment squares with Ali Abunimah's belief that the walls of international opinion are closing in on Israel.
Even Jews are not immune to the truth. Cleaning up their act would be very painful. It would mean earning an honest living instead of robbing.
[ Charged with obstructing justice, false swearing and perjury, beat the rap, thought to have done it the old fashioned way by fraud - Editor ] has allegedly gone even further and likened Haaretz to Der Stürmer.
Israeli Main Stream Newspaper Compared With Der Stürmer, The Nazi Propaganda Paper [ 20 February 2012 ]Haaretz, Israel’s left-wing daily, used to be Israel’s newspaper of record and comparable to the New York Times, read also by those who differed from its line. Today Haaretz is read by less than 6 percent of Israelis, overwhelmingly composed of the country’s left-wing “elite.” Haaretz comes in far behind successful newcomer, right-of-center Israel HaYom at 38% and left-of-center Yediot Aharonoth at 36%.
Haaretz’s English website, however, gets a very high Alexa ranking—around the 3900th most popular website in the world and currently neck-and-neck with the centrist Jerusalem Post's site. Indeed, Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu allegedly called (his office later denied it) Haaretz and the New York Times Israel’s “two main enemies” and said:
They set the agenda for an anti-Israel campaign all over the world. Journalists read them every morning and base their news stories…on what they read in the New York Times and Haaretz.
Whether or not Netanyahu said it [ A known, habitual liar - Editor ], he could have added that foreign diplomats as well base their views of Israel, and their perceptions—however skewed—of Israeli opinion, on what they read in Haaretz.
For his part, Israeli justice minister Yaakov Neeman
