      Former Haaretz Writer Apologizes For Insulting MK


      Well-known columnist Akiva Eldar issued an apology Wednesday to Member of Knesset Orit Struk. Two weeks ago on Galei Tzahal radio Eldar made comments regarding MK Struk's son implicating him in clashes between Jewish residents and Arab residents in Judea and Samaria. Eldar apologized for alleging that MK Struk and her son condone violence. Eldar was a Haaretz newspaper columnist for 35 years. MK Struk, a resident of Hevron, was formerly the Judea and Samaria human rights organization.
