    The truth is that the Israeli media including Yavin have been critical of 'the settlers' for thirty years. Yavin has been raising his eyebrows , and scowling in anger at those of the 'right' for so long that no sane person could doubt his political views. His cheerleading at Oslo was an embarassment to all who hold the idea of objective newsreporting dear. As for Mr. Levi he is a demonizer, who might one time in his life speak to a ' humane settler' or perhaps a 'cruel Palestinian terrorist' and have his world- view shaken. He apparently wants exclusivity rights on demonization. The truth is as human beings the ' settlers' are by and large a considerate dedicated and humane group of Israeli patriots. The one-sidedness of their demonization and the prominence given continually in Israel's leading newspaper is a sad reflection on the society we live in.
