"The central place of our news and editorial units in fulfilling that promise is underscored by the No. 1 statement in our Core Values: 'Content of the highest quality and integrity: This is the basis for our reputation and the means by which we fulfill the public trust and our customers' expectations.' "

"(O)ur goal is to cover the news impartially and to treat readers, news sources, advertisers and all parts of our society fairly and openly, and to be seen as doing so." 

"The reputation of our company rests upon that perception, and so do the professional reputations of its staff members."

"In keeping with its solemn responsibilities under the First Amendment, our company strives to maintain the highest standard of journalistic ethics. It is confident that its staff members share that goal."

A previous article discussed institutionalized Israeli barbarity. It explained murdering Palestinian political prisoners by torture and medical neglect. It covered justifiable Palestinian anger.

Resisting occupation harshness is legitimate. So are street protests for any reason. Haaretz correspondent Amira Hass defended stone throwing. She did so responsibly.

It "make(s) sense for Palestinian schools to (teach) resistance," she said. "Throwing stones is the birthright and duty of anyone subject to foreign rule." Doing so "is an action as well as a metaphor of resistance."

Persecuting young children throwing stones "is an inseparable part".of the job requirements of the foreign ruler, no less than shooting, torture, land theft, restrictions on movement, and the unequal distribution of water sources."

Hass' commentary stirred a storm of right wing anger. Other commentators called stone-throwers terrorists. Hass was assailed for giving them legitimacy and respect.
