This is interesting in itself, but there's a meta story worth noticing. That is: you get a more diverse view of Israeli politics inside Israel than you do in the United States. I admit, I had never really heard of Haaretz until I was traveling in Israel last fall. Now it is on my IGoogle homepage and I look at it more often than several others. For stuff like this (link):

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said a few months ago in a series of closed discussions that in her opinion that Iranian nuclear weapons do not pose an existential threat to Israel, Haaretz magazine reveals in an article on Livni to be published Friday.
Livni also criticized the exaggerated use that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is making of the issue of the Iranian bomb, claiming that he is attempting to rally the public around him by playing on its most basic fears. Last week, former Mossad chief Ephraim Halevy said similar things about Iran.
The article also reveals for the first time a document Livni prepared and sent to Olmert a few months after the Second Lebanon War proposing a new division of labor between the two. "Enclosed is a proposal for work procedures between us, with the aim of providing an answer to Israel's strategic needs and facilitating early planning and the formulation of coordinated Israeli positions ... within the framework of cooperative relations, full transparency and continuous mutual updates," wrote Livni.
Afterthought:Also a shout-out for Laura Rozen at WarandPiecewhere I found this. She might be the best foreign policy journalist going.
