"these groups sponsor quasi-academic conferences, newspaper advertising campaigns and public rallies heralding sweeping allegations of Israeli wrongdoing". Let me bring you an example of "sweeping allegation, mr Steinberg: "...Breaking the Silence, Yesh Din, and the Public Committee Against Torture in Israeli, whose officials travel the world declaring that Israel is a nation of war criminals". One thing you can humbly learn from these NGOs is accuracy of report. Let's be clear mr Steinberg: the generalisation "the nation of war criminals" is what you, a purportedly unbiased researcher, are putting into mouth of all organisations and individuals who voice their opposition to Israeli undemocratic practices. And in the present political spectrum you are just one among the legion. That you chose not to deal with these practices is just a matter of your personal conformism, but to head an institutionalized campaign in stiffling the news about crimes is a crime. Now let's make this stiffling legal insinuates the author. "Monitor", my elbow. "Democratic process", my behind. Are you serious mr Steinberg?
