Of course "having dark skin" has nothing to do with the matter. Of course you're right, Mark, that whatever skin we have doesn't make us conservatives or leftists. Just that Gideon Levy didn't say that... Obama's "yes, we can" turns out to be advertising blurb. Yes, that is extremely painful to see. It doesn't help Israel, that he fails, and it doesn't help the palestinians. Failing like sadly enough Obama does - kills many many thousands of people, and will do in the future... That's the way it is, and Gideon Levy's description is spot on, I think.
