I would like to think that had I been an adult man in the late '30s or early '40s that I would have defended freedom against the Nazis. I never thought that such an opportunity would be presented to me in my adult life. The Bush Administration and the Sharon/Olmert government have perpetrated heinous war crimes since 2003 that should and they should not be allowed to get away with it. I agree with what Mr. Levy wrote. But I disagree with the implication that America is leading Israel by the leash. Israel has to take responsibility for its own conduct and instead of doing so has continually hid behind its bigger brother, America. Israel's conduct in attacking Lebanese civilians is unjustified, illegal and immoral. This absolutism borne of ethnic nationalism spurred on by the backwards ideology of America's neo-cons is a devastating blow to peace and justice every where. I only pray we stop it before it escalates out of control. Sane Israelis like Mr. Levy must take action.
