    This is a parody, right? Maybe a lame attempt at irony? No one, not even a secular, self-hating Israeli left wing nut, can write this drivel with a straight face. To pen, as Levy does, that "George Bush" is responsible for terrorism is to suggest the policeman and the thief are equally responsible for robbery. Kind of dumb. To pen, as Levy does, that "There is no doubt, for example, that ending the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories would weaken the motivation or at least the excuse for terror. As long as the terrible gap between the affluent West and impoverished, backward Third World is not narrowed, as long as ostentatious Olympic Games continue to be held in London while millions die of AIDS in Africa due to a lack of medication, as long as the West continues to wage superfluous wars on false pretenses and Muslims throughout the world feel deprived and persecuted, as long as the economic exploitation and occupation continue in several of the world's countries, terrorism will also continue" is illogical, lame drivel. What is so hard to understand? The Muslims in London, and most of your Pali neighbors, want you dead, Gideon, no matter what you do.

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship
