Arutz Sheva is often quoted by PCG and to a somewhat lesser extent by UCG, LCG and RCG. It is never criticized by the COGs. The COGs trust Arutz Sheva. They have never bothered explaining to their readers the political stance Arutz Sheva tends to take.
According to Israel Shahak and Norton Mezvinsky's book, Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel (1997, 2004), Arutz Sheva refused to broadcast women singing on their radio station for religious reasons.
On November 14, 2012 the dreary tit for tat exchange of fire on the border with Gaza escalated when an Israeli military strike killed Ahmad Jabari, the leader of Hamas' military wing. And so war began in Gaza. It raged for eight days. In Israel it was named Operation Pillar of Defense. In Gaza it was named Operation Stones of Shale.
Below are the tweets from the opinion account on Twitter for Arutz Sheva (Arutz7_Opinion) that were posted during the eight day war.
