What really worried Israelis this weekend

While the entire world is talking about Dubai, I was interested to see that the weekend supplement of Yediot Achronot, Israel's most popular paper, devoted its first nine pages to the allegations against Rav Elon - getting to the events in Dubai only on page 14 (ending on page 16).

I guess that (alleged) Mossad operations going wrong because of a passport problem is old-hat in Israel, as are serious diplomatic crises with Britain. Sex scandals involving the country's most senior rabbis, on the other hand, are still something of a novelty.

At least there's something to be thankful for.
