It appears the main point of NZZ article about apathy of Arabs in Israel was also inaccurate.
- In fact, Israeli Arab voters defy predictions of low turnout http://www.jpost.com/DiplomacyAndPolitics/Article.aspx?id=300567
I see 2 major lines of NZZ attacks over Israel:
- Israel + Discrimination
- Israel + Nationalists + Russians
Reality is as follows:
- There are 3 Arab parties in Israel parliament (UAL – Taal received 5, Hadash 4, and Balad 3)
- Left / Right split is around 50%/50%. This is amazing in conditions of war and constant terror and shows Israel is even more liberal considering many people do not trust in peace with Arabs and vote for right parties in current circumstances.
Will NZZ admit an inaccurate reporting about Israel? Will newspaper still keep its middle east reporters?
