Ya'akov Ahimeir (born 1938), is a senior Israeli journalist, and a television and radio personality.
Gideon Levy comments:
Israel doesn't want journalists like Blau. The Israel Prize is given to journalists of Yaakov Ahimeir's ilk - responsible, statesmanlike and patriotic; that's how Israel likes them. He would have given back the documents. But Blau is the real journalist and putting him on trial is no less than putting Israel's entire news media on trial.
