    As is his style, Levy wields words as if he has direct access to a higher moral authority denied to his peers. Dominique de Villepin and Laurent Joffrin are purveyors of disinformation, Henning Mankell has been "taken advantage of" (which makes him less diabolical but more of a simpleton), etc. Only the all-knowing B-H.L can show us the way. While he scolds us about "elementary honesty" in not holding recognizing Egypt's own blockade (okay, we will assert that it is just as vile as Israel's), he betrays that he has not been anywhere near a checkpoint in Israel. He bludgeons us with a bald untruth or worse when he states categorically that "it is an indisputable fact that the Israelis who man the checkpoints between the territories night and day are the first to make the elementary but essential distinction between the regime ‏(that they seek to isolate‏) and the population ..." What? Israeli forces do not believe in collective punishment? B-H L, forget about Gaza, take the easy way. Just rent a car in Bethlehem with Palestinian license plates, drive to Hebron through all the checkpoints you need to, and take a walk through town where Baruch Goldstein went berserk. If you survive this and make it without your conscience seared, you will nevertheless start making more sense than the drivel you write. In the meantime, you sound just like those idiots you hold in contempt, but one who has never bothered to put themselves in an ordinary Palestinian's shoes.
