    Gideon Levy gives himself away every time. Despite trying to stick to supposed facts, his blatant bias is here again when he trips over himself trying to sound like he's on an even keel. For example, his claim that there was "the need to go and destroy Beirut". Destroy Beirut? Sunuvagun, I went to several Lebanese websites and whatdoyouknow - Beirut is still standing. Did the IDF destroy some buildings in Hezbollah neighborhoods - they certainly did. Did they "destroy Beirut" as Levy claims? Absolutely not. And then "the IDF's failed policy in the occupied territories". Whoa! Wasn't it the PA that failed in the territories by choosing Intifada 2 over Oslo 1? The IDF may have failed in their response to Intifada 2. So? Did the IDF launch Intifada 2? No, the Pals did. There's no shortage of mea culpa about the Israeli side. However, Levy should invest some time and expose the total failures on the Palestinian side in running their "police". That would be real journalism.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
