Israel media & public have frequently been too happy to mock Nobel Prize for Pres.Obama as if they have been waiting this opportunity.It seems they are now realizing how trivial, vulgar & offending their voices have been. It is not excuse that in USA amasement has not been less. But there is difference between amasement and amusement, between critical & insulting. I can not deny: Israel public discourse frequently has bad manners. What is worse sometimes it has no what in Idish called "saihl", which is "practical wisdom". if You want. I would never suggest that the article has none of it. But I would humbly point to Mr Eldar that not very many Arabs in Palestine want reconsilation with him in a way he dreams about or many Israli would enjoy defeat of their Goverment in a way he hopes. To imagine himself being a a promoter of peace & enlightment , for this in Idish there was another word:"luftmenchen", the "salesmen of air ".
