The Israelis will be greatful one day for the voice of Gideon Levy, who made sure the other, conscientious Israel was always alive and loud. One question though: I was in Israel for many months in 2004, and remember taking part in a mass demonstration on Rabin Square (ca. 150.000 participants) against a campaign of bombing in Gaza following the killing of 12 Israeli soldiers. The Intidada was nearing its end, but busses and cafés were still being blown up. How come everyone was out in the street then, in spite of Barak's fateful "no-partner" statement, in spite of on-going terror?
