    In 1620 Sir Francis Bacon postulated logical errors people are wont to make. One of these is .Idols of the Cave (Idola Specus): This is due to individuals' personal weaknesses in reasoning due to particular personalities, likes and dislikes. For example: The contemptuous disparagement of Livnat, Hotelvy, Danon and by inference, Netanyahu because they are Zionists, nationalists. From its inception, Zionism has been subject to different variations. Over time, some have faded and died. If you object to a particular interpretation, by all means don't vote them. If these people from whom you differ are willing to give their lives, figuratively and litterally for their brand of Zionism, you have no moral right to demean them. Shame on you.
