Lost in Translation at Ha'aretz II

ACRI Haaretz.jpe

It turns out that coverage of Har Homa construction wasn't the only discrepancy between the English and Hebrew editions of Ha'aretz on Sunday. The English edition (print and Internet) ran a story about a new report by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) alleging that racism is reaching new heights in Israeli society.

The Hebrew edition (at least the Web site) did not run the story at all.

Why? If ACRI's findings are accurate, isn't the problem of Israeli racism more relevant to the Israeli population than to foreigners? Not if your goal is limited to defaming Israel internationally, as Ha'aretz writers have been known to do.
