So I'm reading this editorial in full support until I slam into this sentence towards the end: "I am not some deranged leftist who supports the Arabs." It then says: "I love Jews, I love Zionists, I love my land, the Land of Israel. As a Jew, I want Israel to be a model state; a light unto the nations; a center of science, culture, economic activity, health services, justice, equality and morality." If one supports "the other" who has no rights and is being persecuted by your own admission, why does that make the person "deranged?" Does that mean the Righteous Gentiles who saved Jews during WWII were "deranged?" Can't a person want Israel to be a light unto the nation and support equal rights without being called names? Isn't that what you, yourself are doing, Mr. Smilansky (and rightly so)?
