    Levy clearly sees himself as the voice of reason, morality, and justice in Israel (and the Jewish world, generally, I'd imagine). And Leftists must establish their credentials today by ritually bashing all Israeli deeds, no matter how understandable. Every healthy society must have internal voices of dissent, willing to shame individuals whose actions bring the whole into disrepute. But there is a tragic corollary to what is now going on with regard to Israel. Jewish scholars who build careers criticizing Israel are fueling the global movement that not only denies the legitimacy of any Jewish state, but feeds the growth of a disturbing global anti-Semitism. How many of us have engaged shameless anti-Semites in conversation, only to be peppered with quotations from leading Jewish scholars? How many of us have seen the looks of glee on their faces as they selectively quote from Jewish anti-Zionists, thus deflecting any charge of anti-Semitism, no matter how obvious?
