    It would seem that some mischief maker has coopted Gideon Levy's name - much like what happens in Talkback sessions - and has written a very uncharacteristic-for-Gideon Levy piece. However, this cannot be so, and from this impossibility one has to conclude that Gideon's tongue was firmly planted in his cheek when he conceived and penned it. The piece is dripping with irony, whose purpose is to unmask the true Lieberman-like nature of the present Olmert government, which follows out an aggressive ultra-right wing agenda, while hypocritically spouting hypocritical centrist words of peace and cooperation. What Gideon is calling for is best summed up in the phrase, "Let it all hang out."
