It is not that the guy is paranoid (just where he brings these fear mongering assault on the Israeli psychic?! one might accuse he over worked imagination, or his otherwise bonton Shtetl mentality inherited from his East European ancestry), but he would us to believe that if we just do as he sees it, the world would love the Israelis. One is more than free to ellude himself, but please Gideon, don't use the bully pulpit of Haaretz to impress us of your yuddling fabricated reality.
