Popular TV Anchor Chastises Israeli Policy
By LAURIE COPANS, Associated Press Writer
Tue May 31, 2:31 PM ET


JERUSALEM - Israel's Walter Cronkite, a respected TV journalist who has delivered the main evening news since 1968, has stepped out from behind the shield of measured neutrality with an angry indictment of Israel's settlement policy and occupation of the Palestinians.

Haim Yavin's five-part documentary — part one was being broadcast Tuesday — prompted calls from settlers for his dismissal, but could also mark a watershed in how the nation views its four-decade rule over Palestinians.

Yavin, 72, has anchored the evening news on Israel's public TV channel since 1968, building an image as a dispassionate reporter — much as Cronkite did in the United States. A founder of Israel's public TV station, Yavin is known as "Mr. TV" and commands considerable respect.

Rarely have settlers been portrayed as harshly by Israel's mainstream media as in Yavin's documentary, filmed with his hand-held video camera and interspersed with his commentary.

"Since 1967, we have been brutal conquerors, occupiers, suppressing another people," Yavin comments in the first segment after listening to settlers insist God gave them these lands. "We simply don't view the Palestinians as human beings."
