It is the second time offending drawings appear on the orthodox temple in Haifa. Someone, having phoned to the church authorities, proposed in awful Russian to "get out". Nobody has claimed the responsibility for these disgusting actions yet. Taking into consideration the happening a Knesset deputy, chairman of the party "Democratic choice", head of Haifa absorption department Roman Bronfman applied to the Minister of Internal Security Gideon Ezre with a letter of request to speed up the investigation of these abominable facts and arrest the guilty.
July 9 the Knesset adopted, despite Government's resistance, in the first reading the bill on Sunday to be a day-off. Pursuant to a new law a working week will last 4-5 days: from Monday till Thursday, working day - 9 hours. On Friday the working day will be over at 13:00.
According to economists from Chamber of commerce, the Israeli economy will lose approximately 12-15 billion shekels as a result of introducing a new day-off.
From now onwards there will be no "absentees without leave" in TSAKHAL. There will be only deserters. Previously, a soldier was declared a deserter only after 14 days of his absence in the unit. Now this term will be shortened up to 24 hours. This novelty is caused by the fact that the number of deserters imprisoned in military jails increased over the last year. Most of the punished soldiers are recidivists. Now the prisoners will receive, as is the case in civil custodies, moral support and help to get absorbed in the army anew.
If earlier a soldier was not to receive a salary during imprisonment, now he is to get it retroactively upon his arrival to the unit.

Administration of the Service of national insurance has adopted a decision to cease insuring foreign workers illegally residing in Israel.
Besides, this decision also covers allowances to Palestinians and foreigners illegally staying in the country. The aim of this innovation is to reduce the amount of an illegal immigration to Israel and to husband hundreds of millions of shekels.
"News of Israel"
July 1 a new editor-in-chief of one of the biggest Israeli newspapers in Russian "Vesti" Lev Baltsan set to his new work. He is a well known in Israel publisher and journalist. Lev Baltsan will, in a certain way, ironically narrate about events in public and political life of Israel.
Take a close look at this photo from the newspaper "Maarin". You see one of fine terrorists caught in the course of an anti-terrorist operation in Tul-Karem (April-May 2002). Two of them possessed kamikaze belts; the boot of their car contained 17 kg of explosives. The below-photo inscription runs, "Soldier of the Army of defense of Israel gives water to one of terrorists arrested at the final stage of preparing an act of terror in Israel".
This photo deserves a Pulitzer Prize. It shows how Israeli soldiers behaved during the operation "Protective wall".
Such soldiers acted in Jenine, too. Such soldiers were in Ramallah. Such soldiers blocked terrorists in the Church of Christmas in Bethlehem.
Look at the "aggressors" and be proud of them!
