Summary of Editorials from the Hebrew Press – September 21st, 2011

The Jerusalem Post comments on the expected Palestinian request for admission to the UN and recognition as a state: "Palestinians are already planning to march on security check-points and settlements in the West Bank after the UN General Assembly vote, which could provoke an Israeli response and lead to violence. But the UN appears unperturbed by Israel’s legitimate security concerns and oblivious to the fact that only a negotiated peace settlement based on mutual concessions and recognition can resolve the conflict. Instead, the UN seems obsessed with singling out Israel for condemnation. Its nearly pathological fixation on Israel, coupled with its refusal to acknowledge real crimes against humanity elsewhere, has invalidated the UN as a forum for healing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. More tragically, it has wasted its potential as an international force for good."
Yediot Aharonot says that, "In the autumn of 2011, the world, especially the Middle East and Europe, is being controlled by 1.2 billion fear-instilling Muslims, and every non-Jew does his own simple account of whom to support: A billion Muslims or 7 million ‘trouble-making’ Jews."
Ma’ariv professes that "’Strategic assets’ are by nature temporary, variable, hang by a thread, and ultimately crumble in one fashion or another. This is what happened with Iran and Turkey, and this is what is liable to happen with Egypt and Jordan."
Yisrael Hayom believes that, "Paradoxically, events in the Middle East emphasize the importance of US-Israeli strategic cooperation. From the strategic aspect, there is a reasonable chance today that US-Israel relation will rise a notch, not only from the Israeli perspective, but also from the perspective of the Americans who need a stable leaning post. Maybe not the US’s ‘land-based aircraft carrier’, as has been articulated once, but certainly an important rear position and supply base for the American Army."
Haaretz writes: "The interim recommendations of the committee appointed to look into economic concentration won’t revolutionize the Israeli economy, but they would produce changes in the right direction by increasing competition. The committee’s most significant step was its proposal to separate substantial holdings in the financial sector from those in the nonfinancial sector, in an effort to avoid conflicts of interest between those who lend money and those who borrow it. Because the proposals are restrained rather than extreme, the cabinet and Knesset ought to approve them as is."
[Eitan Haber, Shmuel Hollander and Zalman Shoval wrote today’s articles in Yediot Aharonot, Ma’ariv and Yisrael Hayom, respectively.]
