    ...only wingnuts are not capable of understanding how right he is. Many like me tried for years and years to get the wingnuts to see how destructive they were and are, and they are still here. They win! They claimed to be friends of Israel but it turns out each and every wingnut were the ones that caused Israel's delegitimization just as surely as Israel's policy actions over the years have. It was the same with Olmert, he was on his way out before he really said what needed saying, and he was so lame a duck that in these very pages the very same wingnuts then and now still rail against any notion of a fair peace deal that he tried to forward. Levy is right. The "peace camp" is an illusion in Israel; mere lip service to "peace" - as he points out, everyone knows it's all about 1948 and making atonements for the original wrongs. Without addressing the root cause of the conflict, the Nakba and all that ensued, there's no way to have a full and fair deal.
