Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

'Haaretz' publisher says Israel is `an apartheid state' -- as his paper continues to warn against an Israel-Iran war | Mondoweiss |

Amos Schocken is Israel's equivalent of the latest Sulzberger to inherit control of The New York Times. Schocken, in his mid-70s, is the third generation of his family to run Haaretz, the most respected newspaper in Israel, and he speaks out regularly in columns and on social media. 

Just the other day, Schocken called Israel "an apartheid state." He was indignantly responding to a right-wing member of the Knesset Amichai Chikli, Israel's Parliament. Here's the full quotation:

    The product of Zionism, the State of Israel, is not a Jewish and democratic state, but has instead become an apartheid state, plain and simple.

Haaretz continues to be indispensable to understanding the vital truths about Israel/Palestine, truths The New York Times ignores and covers up.

The latest example: yesterday's Times has an analysis of the differences between the U.S. and Israel over the re-negotiations of the Iran nuclear deal. The article could have been ghost-written by hawks in the Israeli government. Its overall tone is sympathy with Israel, and a sense that American policymakers are naive.
