    Mr. Levy is of the opinion that "infused" fear is an obstacle to the good life (read Passover family vacations and Middle East peace) for Israelis. Just step outside Israel to see the ominous changes in life for Jews around the world. While Israeli travelers luckily did well in Turkey and Cairo this time, Jewish students in Canadian universities get attacked by machetes. An anomaly, for sure, but one that was simply incomprenensible during my lifetime until very recently. Your Israeli fear is realistic, completely legitimate and should be as a beacon of pre-emptive action as the spectre of anti-Semitism (now cleverly camouflaged by Anti-Zionism) is progressing in manners many of my Boomer generation in the galut finds horrifying and breathlessly surreal.
