    has levy been taking his meds? has he been taking someone else's meds? it is, as a preliminary matter, clear that he is not oriented to time and place and, thus, should be spared the harsh riposte that would otherwise be appropriate. on the other hand, one cannot merely dismiss his most exercise in incoherence, "bullies alliance" as another entry in the lamentable competition among Israeli second-raters to denounce their country and to extend every courtesy, every fantasy of good faith, and the product of every excursion in amnesia to Israel's mortal enemies. even this scrufulous assortment of second-raters normally attempts to place the veneer of logic or of history or or fact over their arguments. levy hasn't troubled to do so: he has produced an undisguised essay in subversion, defeatism, and demoralization. he should be made to pay for his crimes.
