    Courage is a power to withstand danger, fear, difficulty not to make foolish, rash, dangerous decisions. Oslo failures have already proved that leftist definition of courage is called suicide, not the suicide of arabs and terrorist, but suicide of Jewish nation and ideals, and security. You can only force peace on a people that are vanquished or have a culture desiring peace. Arab culture and Islam do not desire peace, but rather desire power. Disempowering Jewish right to live in the land of Israel is cowardice not courage, and Levy seems to be well endowed with cowardice. Ranting against Jewish nation desire to protect itself from terror and arab desire for Israel destruction is not courage but cowardice and blindness. It is this blindness that has led to the moral corruption that has seeped into Israeli society and government. Leftist confusion about what is courage. Courage would be for Levy to donate his full salary to the PA, act that costs him personally, not his cheap talk.
