    A "new realism"? That Uri Avneri woke up one day and saw that Neve Gordon is a putz, that caused "consternation" among Avneri's followers? This is Burston's new realism? The good sign would be if Avneri's followers had agreed with Avneri, but they didn't. In fact, an even better sign would be a wide-ranging condemnation by the left of Gordon, but that didn't happen either. There wasn't much of a narrow-ranging condemnation either. The left is disappearing because they got sucked into political correctness. It's the same movement that says Israeli Jews do not have human rights, so it's ok for Palestinians to "resist" the "occupation" by killing Israeli civilians. No, Bradley, there is no resurgence on the left, and all signs are that the death watch should continue. Meretz may disappear from the Knesset in the next election or two, and Labor will replace it with 5 or 6 seats. There is no new realism on the left. Just the same old knee-jerk reactionaries.
