This is a shameful end to a promising movement. There were revolutionary leaders available who had all the necessary knowledge of ideology and all the determination needed to turn this into a real revolution: Gideon Levy, Neve Gordon, Yossi Sarid, to mention just a few. They would have led the masses to take over the centres of power, and set up revolutionary tribunals to try all those associated with the old regime. They would have dismantled the IDF and the occupation (of all Palestinian lands). It was a once in a lifetime chance. Alas, the stupid unwashed and confused masses followed new and unexperienced leaders who led them into quiet surrender. Not a single martyr: as a progressive Haaretz reader, I turn away in disgust.
