From an otherwise fascinating Times profile of an Israeli general, Herzl Halevi:

Some who have served with him say General Halevi struggles to connect with soldiers. "He's not a man of men, he is not the center of the party, and there are voices saying that he's too complicated," said one former colleague, speaking on the condition of anonymity in order to do so frankly. "He is too political, too much involved with who will be nominated to where, and not all the considerations were only professional. Some of it was, 'Does he belong to my tribe or not?' "

From what was, at least earlier this year, the posted Times policy on the use of anonymous sources (the policy seems to have been removed from the Times Web site, or at least relocated):


Explaining Palestinian Rock-Throwing

A front-page Time article about Palestinian Arab children who throw rocks at Israelis explains: "They throw because there is little else to do in Beit Ommar — no pool or cinema, no music lessons after school, no part-time jobs other than peddling produce along the road."


Adelson Honored

The New York Times has ratcheted back its description of businessman and philanthropist Sheldon Adelson from "ultraconservative" (May 20 article) to merely "conservative" (today's article). Today's article also includes this passage:

As for the Palestinians, Mr. Adelson said, "They teach their children that Jews are descended from swine and apes, pigs and monkeys." Then he questioned their existence as a distinct ethnic group, saying they were "southern Syrians" or Egyptians until Yasir Arafat, who was leader of the Palestine Liberation Organization, "came along with a pitcher of Kool-Aid and gave it to everybody to drink and sold them the idea of Palestinians."

These ideas, staples of the far right, are deeply offensive to the Palestinians — perhaps partly the point.


Ultraconservative Adelson

A news article from Tel Aviv about the Israeli politician Yair Lapid includes a reference to "the revelation that he met in April with Sheldon Adelson, the ultraconservative financier who backs Mr. Netanyahu and owns the Israel Hayom newspaper that loyally supports him."


Israeli Election Coverage

At least two points seemed worth mentioning in the Times's coverage of the Israeli election.
