I do not live in Israel and I am not aware of who Katzav is beyond what the media says. I have not read the speech transcript, and he might well be a serial raper and a dishonor to the state. I do not know. What I do know is what I read in this article. Gideon Levy, you are a emotional partisan full of hatred. This is not press, this is a cheap harangue. You are at the border of libel and doing what you denounce: inciting. You have lost my respect and credibility.
