    * According to face-to-face surveys, more Palestinians in east Jerusalem would prefer to become citizens of Israel rather than citizens of a new Palestinian state. In addition, 40 percent said they would probably or definitely move in order to live under Israeli rather than Palestinian rule.
    * 44 percent of the Palestinians in Jerusalem say they are very, or at least somewhat, satisfied with their standard of living. This is a very high percentage compared to other populations in the Arab world. Only about 30 percent sympathize with either Fatah or Hamas or with the Israeli Arab Islamic movement. Politics is not a major preoccupation.

    1. This is completely off topic, and a comment rule violation. Not to mention this fake claim has been raised here & rebutted before. Please stay on topic & do NOT raise propaganda arguments that’ve already been refuted. And WINEP is hardly a credible source as it is so closely affiliated with Aipac.

  2. Here’s a link (Hebrew) to the text of the apology that was broadcasted – couldn’t findthe actual video yet.


    I’d be interested to understand what is actually the truth – did the reporters have any real proof or not concerning the allegations? Was it just gossip and rumour? Who is being protected by the resigning journalists in their not revealing the basis to their accusations?

    Incidently, Guy Zohar, the journalist from the “tzinor” programme refused to read the apology and resigned from the anchor spot on the channel 10 weekly prestigious news summary programme “hashavua”

  3. Following the American Rich Tycoon meddling and the forced apology, the news chairman, the news top editor resigned. The news anchor resigned in a live broadcast last night. Channel 10 is in a big mess. The Israeli news guys do not respond good to unprofessional pressure.

  4. as a media student in Israel, i have tried to find this profile on sheldon adelson on the World Wide Web. so far i didn’t suceed! even in this link, the specific profile, and the ‘promos’ were cut-out. if anyone knows, how can i find it, i will apriciate it!
    we (media students) are trying to find new details on the Adelson – Netanyahu – channel 10 news story, and publish it! this story doesn’t quite stands out in the mainstream media channels in Israel.
    we (hopefully) are not bound to the same economical forces the stop or soften the reports on this issue.
    any information will help….

    1. Google his name in the search box in my sidebar & you’ll find the full length documentary which I’ve linked to, along with many posts I’ve written about him, & in one a link to a terrific New Yorker profile of Adelson. Email me if you need further help.
