The odds that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s proposal to legalize gambling in Eilat will receive government approval do not look promising, but when such a contentious issue is laid out on the table you can bet the Hebrew-language media will go all in with attempts to understand the sudden rush to put casinos in the southern resort town.
“A political gamble,” reads Yedioth Ahronoth’s main headline.
The paper stresses the fierce objections raised by members of Netanyahu’s own government to the possible establishment of several casinos in the Red Sea city, but Yedioth’s analysts nevertheless seem to side with the prime minister’s proposal.
Nahum Barnea, uncharacteristically sympathetic to Netanyahu, repeats the Israeli leader’s claims that the only way to revive Eilat’s dire economic situation is to attract gambler tourism to the city.
“In face of Eilat’s tsunami of problems, the government has only one solution: A casino,” Barnea writes.
Yedioth goes on to offer a casino-themed infographic explaining the pros and cons of the prime minister’s proposal, stressing that while legalized gambling will probably result in increased tourism, economic growth for Eilat’s residents, and high tax revenues for the government, the move may also usher in organized crime rings to the resort city, and harm financially unstable individuals who may be tempted to spend their hard-earned shekels at the roulette table in hopes of making an easy buck rather than handling their money responsibly.
In Haaretz, the focus is on the Welfare Ministry, which in no uncertain terms determines that the opening of an Eilat casino will result in a major increase of gambling addicts.
“I am against the establishment of a casino because such a move will lead many people to need treatment from the Ministry of Welfare,” Haim Katz, a member of Netanyahu’s ruling Likud party and the minister of welfare, tells Haaretz.

Iran and Russia have reinforced their military and nuclear cooperation since the signing in July of a landmark accord between Tehran and world powers over the Iranian nuclear program.
Israel Hayom contributor Boaz Bismuth bemoans the West’s acceptance of Iran as a trade partner once again, and accuses world powers of hypocrisy as Tehran builds up its stockpile of weapons.
“Iran hasn’t changed [since the signing of July’s nuclear deal with the P5 1 world powers], not in actions and not in rhetoric” Bismuth says.
