For a good leftist, like Peretz ,personal dignity and appearances trump reality every time. Staring out through a blinded pair of binocs and PRETENDING you can see something is a perfect metaphor for the way Peretz handles the defence of Israel. The way he handles his ministry is also a pretense, fakery, flim flam. But Mr. Levy begrudges Israelis the right to mock the man by calling it racism. Peretz' incompetency has resulted in the death of many good people. His actions ( or inactions, as the case may be) deserve far harsher treatment than laughter from the Israeli public.There is nothing comedic about the damage Peretz has inflicted, and continues to inflict.I'm sure the laughter directed at Peretz is not one of delight, but rather the bitter laughter of derision. Laugh away, Israelis. Laugh for the ones who Peretz put into their graves and who can laugh no longer!
