    For sure, Levy has a few followers in the left wing world. His fans couldn't care less if Levy spreads falsehoods, tells the truth, or just tells fiction. His mind and their minds are made up and investigative journalism is for other papers in other countries. Not here. He shares something in common with NY Times' Thomas Friedman - they both believe that there are 500,000 "radical settlers" hell bent on carrying us all into hell and damnation. For Levy, as for Friedman, history is restricted to the 20th century, and has little meaning before 1967. That there was never a country called "Palestine" means nothing to them. That the Palestinians consider Gideon Levy himself to be a settler is beyond Levy's grasp of comprehension. He's something like a dumbed down version if Neville Chamberlain had been an op-ed columnists for a fringe newspaper.
