non-treasonous or non-leftist political opinion:

Court Orders 'Peace Now' Fined For Slander

15 Sivan 5767, 01 June 07 03:57by Maayana Miskin(
A Jerusalem judge ruled Wednesday that Peace Now must pay 58,000 shekels
($14,336) to Aryeh King after slandering him on the left-wing Peace Now

The group had claimed that King, a well-known activist for Jewish
settlement in eastern Jerusalem, had announced that he planned to break
the law by bringing 40 Jewish families to live in an area that lacked
building approvals. The site called King a racist and a fascist, and
accused him of threatening the peace of Jerusalem and leading to its

The judge found that Peace Now's allegations were false and slanderous,
and ordered the group to pay the full penalty required by law.

The group still has the right to appeal the court's decision, and King's
lawyer, Gili Israeli, said after the ruling that the affair may be far
from over.

Re: Appointment of Mr. Carmi Gillon

Dear Professor Magidor

We write to urge you to cancel the appointment of Mr. Carmi
Gilon for the position of Vice-President for External Affairs of the
University. The Vice-President of the University is an important
representative of the Hebrew University and the image of the
university depends to a large extent on the choice of this official.
The University is a humanistic and intellectual endeavor; its
essence is rooted in the attempt to understand nature as a whole and,
in particular, the human phenomenon. Indeed, its fundamental ethos
relies on the acceptance of human beings, as they are, independent of
where they come from.
The .Shabak. - General Security Services in Israel (the
Israeli Secret Service) and thus Mr. Gilon, the previous head of this
organization, have aspirations and use methods of operation that are
totally incompatible with those of an academic institution. We
therefore request to be represented by a person whose professional
credentials are based on a lifetime of a civilian career in service of
humanistic objectives. We are sure that there are many excellent
Israelis of such qualifications.
