So, are the changing winds bad news for Israeli journalism, or for the feasibility of the two state solution? Not necessarily. Many believe that the overkill and over-dramatization used by Ha'Aretz and its likes achieved only hatred, not peace.
Writings like Horovitz's column appeal to American Jews who cling to a notion of Jewish powerlessness and who need enemies to define their identity. They resist celebrating a US-Israel bond that is stronger than it has ever been.
