Globes: 'Hundreds' have canceled Haaretz subscriptions

Globes, Israel's business daily has reported that 'hundreds' of people have canceled their subscriptions to Haaretz, Israel's Hebrew 'Palestinian' daily, in reaction to the Anat Kam treason affair.
Market sources believe that hundreds of people have cancelled their subscriptions for Hebrew daily "Haaretz" in the wake of the Anat Kam spy case and the involvement of "Haaretz" correspondent Uri Blau. "Haaretz's" customer services have been very busy in the past few days.

A "Haaretz" sales representatives made the following statement in response to requests to cancel subscriptions: "I wish to make the following points. This whole affair is known, and, as is known, everything was done with the approval of the military censor. They claim that there are documents in the possession of journalist Uri Blau, who was cooperating with the Israel Security Agency. He gave them the documents and they were destroyed, apparently without examining them.

"I understand your protest irrespective of your political opinions. A subscriber will stay for many years not just because of this correspondent. We have other supplements and public opinion is important to us."
The Knesset may stop reading Haaretz as well.
MK Israel Hasson (Kadima) suspended his "Haaretz" subscription in the wake of the affair. When the case was disclosed, he said, "I call on every 'Haaretz' subscriber to act as I did and to freeze their subscriptions immediately until the 'Haaretz' correspondent, Uri Blau, returns all the documents given him by Anat Kam, comes in for questioning, and is fired immediately. It's impossible to break the law and harm the security of the nation and our children, while simultaneously seeking cover on the grounds of freedom of expression and the public's right to know."

Hasson added that he would ask the Knesset Speaker to cancel all Knesset subscriptions to "Haaretz".
It's about time. No, this is not the first time Haaretz has acted treasonously.

I have noticed that most of the commenters on the english online edition of Haaretz are anti-Israel Europeans and Americans. I think that Haaretz has a new business model with less emphasis on the Israeli audience, and more emphasis on attracting anti-Israel foreigners.

Haaretz has the best business section in the Middle East, period. That is why most people subscribed to it and not for its leftist opinion. That said, its good to hear people are canceling their subscriptions. Embracing treason in a free society carries with it costs and here's hoping that Israel's Hebrew Palestinian daily goes down the drain.
