    Gideon Levy likes to wax elequent about "Repression". However, since GIdeon is so fond of using the term "repression", I find it the hypocrisy that he has concocted such a repressive catch-22 in regards to Katsav. Katsav is INDICTED (sounds scary, but all it really means is that he has been ACCUSED), there has not been any public hearings or a trial. The media goes absoutely BESERK with speculation. The President has the sheer "gall" to go public defending his name and Gideon has the chutzpah to suggest that by publically arguing for his innocence (again, BEFORE TRIAL) he should be relieved of his position..It would be like if filed a (perhaps false, perhaps true) complaint that Gideon stole my wallet. Gideon denies the charges.I write a series of articles claiming he did. Levy then publically claims his innocence and says I lied. I then say that because he publically defended his name he must CEASE to write for Ha'aretz. That, my dear GIdeon, is the essence of FASCISM!
