    ...will never quit his one-sided criticism, nor stop hailing the Europeans for their antisemitic double standards. While uniformed fascists are again walking the streets of Kiev, When the Italians are evicting Roma by the thousands, when African refugees are languishing in over crowded shacks and barracks in Andalucia, Gideon wants those responsible bashing Israel. Bash, bash and more bash. Newsflash for Levy: They have been doing that for 40 odd years. It has yielded nothing. Why? Because the recalcitrant party was never Israel. Anwar Sadat wanted peace. He got everything he asked for. As did the late King Hussein. The Palestinians never did, and to understand this, all you have to do is listen to their leaders. The "left" can conjure all the rosy delusions they want, the vast majority in Israel, including nowadays in the state of TA, understands that the "lefts" recipe for peace has brought only more death, Arab as well as Jewish. And this is why the Israeli "left" is doomed. Which is deeply sad for if its one thing this country needs its social justice, lots of it. But the left is dooming that as well by sticking to the Oslo dellusion in the face of reality. And so even religious social democrats like me are left with not choice but to vote for Likud. Congratulations...
