    There is no doubt that certain aspects of Mr. Levy's epistle have merit. There is only one point he does not make acknowledging the mistakes Israel makes. Having heard Ms. Helen Thomas say "jews should go back to Germany, Poland etc. but not that peace with the Arabs is important but back to the greatest annihilators of Jews in history. She did not say Americans should go back to Africa, England or etc. Was the goal of most Arab countries to "drive the Jews back into the sea?" Id the majority of 1 billion muslims anti-semitic because of their Koran or Israeli politics? Those are existential questions Mr. Levy does not bring up in addition to his points. Israel has contributed to more health by companies such as Teva in addition to it's militrary business. The UN voted Israel was 100% compliant in returning GAZA and Lebanese land. Did that help??? It cannot when the Islamaztion is spreading even to Turkey. Regardless of who is to blame in the "flotilla affair" did Turkey s motivation to become a NEW defender of the Palestinian cause it to provoke the affair. Mr. Levy's simplistic approach bears more scrutiny as to the other factors. Does our religion provide for 30 or 70 virgins to die in martydom.
