Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Katzav may be guilty; where there's enough smoke. He should have done what others have said: declared his innocence and resigned for the good of the country. But not for the reasons Levy talks about in his article. First, incitement is a ridivulous term not measurable and not worthy of a democracy. Second, the Israeli media always under-report and overwrite. The guys is innocent, and he has not been indicted - it may not happen. Plus, the glee at which liberal, elitist Ashkenazi Israeli leftist media types have in taking down anyone with a different view from theirs is obvious. It may not be a conspiracy, but it is a community of nods and winks. Katsav's simple, naive, pre-post-Zionist narrative is at odds with the liberal elite's weary-of-it-all post-Zionist stance. So, he was not one of them, and they were always playing him for a fool.
