The strike weapon is used far too quickly here in Israel. And to have the threat of cutting off the country from the outside world is totally unforgivable. Not all travellers are running off for holidays to Turkey. Some of us have family overseas, does Gideon Levy not allow us to visit them? Besides, the idea of striking at the airport and stranding TOURISTS, is utterly despicable. Tourists bring in millions of dollars, pounds and euros. This is the height of the tourist season, Gideon Levy didn't think to mention how they may be affected and the reputation of the country. He is too busy linking strikes to the Palestinian suffering. Totally irelevant.
