The Jerusalem Post on Thursday canceled publication of a book about human rights in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, making a move that is sure to fuel conjecture that the influential and traditionally liberal paper is taking on a marked conservative slant. The book, entitled "Essays on Human Rights," was edited by Meron Benvenisti, the leading Israeli authority on the occupied lands.

N. David Gross, who joined the Jerusalem Post in 1950, was named managing editor and Matt Nesvisky, a 15-year veteran, was appointed editor of the paper's new weekly magazine. They are the first replacements for about 30 senior editorial staffers who quit Israel's only English-language daily last week in a dispute over the newspaper's editorial policy. The paper got a new president and publisher, Yehuda Levy, a former career army officer, in July.

Senior editors and reporters dismissed from the Jerusalem Post said Thursday they will launch a new English-language newspaper backed by Israeli and foreign investors.

Hesh Kestin listened politely as the young hitchhiker he had picked up complained about everything from the poor state of Israeli roads to the ailing national health service. Then something inside the native New Yorker--a commitment to his adopted homeland, a journalistic sense of history, or maybe just an inbred optimism--made him take issue with what he heard.
