Censorship in Israel

I have had friends suggest that the news in Israel is heavily censored, that they only print the Israeli side of every issue and suppress all opposing views.

Quite frankly I don't think these people have ever read an Israeli newspaper.

Case in point: Today, Haaretz (one of Israel's leading newspapers) published an opinion piece calling on Israelis to "pack up and go". I don't agree with the sentiment, but you've got to admit, that sure makes accusations of Israeli censorship look silly.

Can you imagine the New York times printing that the United States should just give California back to Mexico?
