The GRALTA Foundation makes a substantial annual contribution to Haaretz, and Haaretz has programmed its website to permit us to post occasional links to their articles that penetrate through its paywall.

These links are a poor substitute for having your own Haaretz subscription, which not only lets you read and comment on any article of interest as quickly as it is published, but gives you the ability to search and research the Haaretz archives for any topic / any author  anytime. The cost of a one-year individual subscription to Haaretz is $120, and you can find more information here:
https://www.haaretz.com/promotions-page.

We strongly encourage everyone to “tune in” to www.haaretz.com on a daily basis, even if only to check the headlines.

  • Opinion |God Save Israel, I Don’t Know Who Else Can
    When I see the imminent collapse of Israel’s democratic regime, I think of Poland’s pre-war nationalists who became Nazi collaborators. We cannot leave Israel and Judaism in the hands of racists and xenophobes among us

  • The disabled Palestinian slowly walked away. Then, Israeli troops shot him in the back of the head
    Mohammad Khabali started to retrace his steps. Security camera footage shows three soldiers moving ahead, to within 80 meters of him. Suddenly two shots are heard. The mentally disabled young man collapses, dead

  • I feel no sympathy for the settlers
    Beneath the veil of sanctimonious and hypocritical unity, and the media’s fake show of national grief to advance its own commercial goals, the truth must be told: Their tragedy isn’t ours

  • The execution of a helpless, mentally ill Palestinian

  • Two shootings in Israel and Palestine, equally criminal

  • IDF raids in West Bank show how occupation becomes routine
    There’s barely a Palestinian family that isn’t familiar with this practice. Israelis don’t get abducted from their homes. This is a feature of the apartheid system

  • Netanyahu didn’t even call to congratulate B’Tselem
    The 2018 Human Rights Prize of the French Republic will be awarded to B’Tselem; What’s new and noteworthy is that an Israeli organization is being awarded a prize for being persecuted in its own country

  • What does Hezbollah want?
    By threatening Israel, Hezbollah is undermining those who have the right and the obligation to battle it and those who express solidarity with the Palestinian people

  • Official Documents Prove: Israel Bans Young Americans Based on Canary Mission Website
    Some of the Americans who have been detained for questioning upon arrival in Israel over the past few months reported they were questioned about their political activity based on ‘profiles’ about them published on the controversial website Canary Mission.
