    Mr. Levy this is one of the occasions where I disagree with you on a number of counts: 1) We do not know how many casualties there were on the Syrian border. 2) the IDF claims few if any deaths occurred. 3) As other Ha'aretz reports show, the Palestinian refugee leadership pushed ignorant victims towards a ridiculous mission, probably with ultimate backing by Assad himself. 4) Slaughtering protesters who want democratic reforms is not equivalent to shooting at the legs of a mob storming a heavily fortified armistice line. 5) I agree that Israel has ignored the claims of Palestinian refugees, but this event is not a step forward in their cause. 6) A true leftist would argue that genuine peace negotiations are the way forward, not mob actions intended to provoke violence. 7) Netanyahu may not be the friend of the left, but his response has reason in this case--Assad is the root of the problems of Syria, not Israel.
