Whether they are survivors of
the Holocaust or of Israel's wars, or
both, Israelis have experienced
tragedy and pain and they tend to be
fearful and even paranoid. So they
may overreact to negative media
coverage, as do their alter egos, the
Jews of the Diaspora. But as sur-
vivors in the truest sense, they will
continue to press on in their struggle
to survive and flourish amid untold
hostility. And indeed, that is the
story that will ultimately be ac-
knowledged, and reported, by the

there was no attempt to sum up the
12 hours of discussion, but one re-

He added that the British press,
after the Falklands war and its news
blackout, recommended that the
government follow Israel's policies in
allowing coverage of a war.
Hannah Zemer, editor of Davar,
an Israeli daily, said that journalists
in Israel "can live with censorship as
it is."
"I often argue with the censor
but I am glad he exists to help share
the responsibility of deciding what
should and what should not be pub-
lished. I don't want that total respon-
sibility," she said, adding that on a
practical level the censor only cen-
