Headline of the Day (hotd)

Censorship is harming the Shalit deal

--- Haaretz

this is just a few days after the headlines were how they are keeping everything quiet because too mucyh publicity harms the deals. So which is it? too much publicity or too much censorship? or is it whatever is against the newspapers interests??

  1. There's a difference between lack of censorship (i.e., the government releasing information), and public outcry, which gives Hamas the impression that they can extract a huge price for his release, since the Israeli "street" will demand it.

    In all honesty, if the government releases whatever infomation is being requested, most people wouldn't even look at it, much less understand its full implications. But the "Free Gilad*" rallies tug at the heartstrings and make news, whiule thousands of people continue to visit the Shalit family's protest tent.

    *Hurry, supplies are limited!
