Having read the talkbacks, it is clear that some readers are not capable of understanding a very basic premise. Leibler is not seeking to deny freedom of expression. He is not demanding allegiance to Likud. His call to marginalize the Iasrael bashers could be made just as readily by Likud, Labor, Kadima or Meretz supporters. The point of the article is there are red lines. When one actively demonizes and seeks to delegitimize the State of Israel and its right to exist, he is then, for all intents and purposes, acting outside the mainstream, having elected consciously to isolate and marginilize himself. This is not an issue of political expression. Such persons would find themselves rejected not only by people like Leibler, but by all persons who hold the State of Israel dear to them, irrespective of their political persuasions.
