    Another incisive, straight-to-the-point article by Gideson Levy. Since when did sharon become a moderate? Does leaving likud and setting up his own so-called centrist kadima mean that he has had some kind of conversion? Has he put down the sword and somehow discovered what it is to be human? Last time I looked, the wall was still being built, carving up Palestinian territory and destroying prospects of a viable Palestinian state. No change in his behaviour there, despite the 'centrist' tag. Last time I looked, Palestinians were still losing their olive trees to the rabid-dog settlers, who continue to do their truly evil work knowing that they have the full support of the state. No change in sharon there. Still the same - who cares what he calls himself? Last time I checked, he was still pretending that there was 'no partner' to negotiate with. He is still rampaging down the unilateral path. No change there. Don't listen to what he says. Look at what he does. Don't be like Neville Chamberlain. Could ONE of the many israel supporters on this forum please tell me: exactly what is it that has redefined sharon from being of the extreme right to being a moderate?
