Maariv launches English-language site

This great news comes via Imshin at her blog, "Not a Fish (provinically speaking): The meaningless chatter of your regular split personality Israeli mother trying to make sense of current insanity"
At last! Maariv in English. Although the print version has yellow tendencies, this newspaper is far more representative of "Middle Israel" than Haaretz or the Jerusalem Post. I do believe it also has a larger readership than both newspapers put together, although far less than Yediot Aharonot. Its op-ed columns are much more likely to reflect different points of view.
