Former Government Secretary to Ehud Barak, Isaac Herzog, is given space in the Guardian. to denounce the Palestinians' rejection of Barak's generous offer. In his comment he complains of "generalised attacks on Israel in some foreign papers". Needless to say, he doesn't say which papers. It's certainly not the Guardian. and if it's not the Guardian, which is it? The Independent. supports the Sharon plan too. So that leaves out the only two UK papers that ever dare criticise Israel. The New Statesman's never going to stick its neck out again. So which foreign papers is Herzog reading? Unfortunately he doesn't say. If he did I'd subscribe.
