Treason at Haaretz: Haaretz helps Iran look for nuke builders

Arutz Sheva is reporting this morning that the International Herald Tribune printed an advertisement last week in which Iran sought help in constructing nuclear plants. The Tribune is owned by the New York Slimes and printed and distributed simultaneously in many cities and (mostly leftist) newspapers throughout the world. In Israel, the Tribune is printed and distributed by Haaretz, Israel's Hebrew Palestinian daily. Haaretz printed the ad. You can see a copy of the ad by following the link above to Arutz Sheva's web site. But here's the curious part:
Arutz-7 asked Haaretz’s advertising department whether it considered rejecting the ad seeking builders for Iranian nuclear reactors. Manager Aviva Bronstein says Haaretz receives the International Herald Tribune as a finished product. “We sometimes don’t even see it until it is in print,” she said. “We do not review their ads, only those that appear in the Haaretz section of the paper.”

A subordinate said that guidelines for ads would reject an ad calling for violence against a certain group of people. Asked by Arutz-7 whether the construction of the means to a nuclear bomb for a nation that has stated its intend to use it for genocide does not fall into that category, the woman, who declined to give her name, said: “I don’t believe that falls into the same category.”

Bronstein said that there is no ad that would conceivably lead Haaretz to refrain from distributing an edition of the International Herald Tribune.
Does anyone NOT think this is treason?

Treason is such an archaic concept. This is why so many forward-thinking politicians and opinion leaders around the world are comfortable digging their countries' graves.
