    If only there were more Israelis like Gideon Levy. If there were then Israel might be saved from itself. As it stands another nail has been driven into the coffin of the Israeli State. There's a madness to all of this. If Israel were an individual s/he would be committed to a mental asylum to protect her/himself and others. Instead, anyone who actually cares about Israel surviving as a democracy can only look on and watch the 'slow motion train smash' which is going to destroy not just a Jewish state of Israel but any state of Israel. This law achieves nothing but more hatred in the indigenous Palestinians, who will, in time, either short or long, but inevitably, in time, be a majority in any Israel or any one-state and, the outcome for Israel will be exactly the same as that for South Africa's former oppressors... and for all the same reasons. Only insanity stops Israelis from seeing such a clear and brutal truth.
