Haaretz: Homesh Victory Meaningless Without Coverage

The Haaretz newspaper, in its coverage of the Hevron eviction, observed that the movement to resettle Homesh has scored a victory against the government, but gloats at having neutralized it by refraining from giving press coverage to the return.

"This will be Defense Minister Ehud Barak's first test in his current post vis-a-vis the settlers, with the exception of the IDF's resounding failure at Homesh, where settler youth have continued for weeks to visit the remains of the outpost at their will," the article, by Amos Harel, Nadav Shragai and Yuval Azoulay, reads.

"The lack of media coverage at Homesh, however, has made the settlers' victory there nearly inconsequential."
