    I implore Jews everywhere. Beware your own words. The more shrill and hateful you become toward your fellow Jews, the more this allows people who truly despise all things Jewish (regardless of degree of Orthodoxy, commitment to Zionism, what have you) to openly advocate the debasement of Jews everywhere, starting with Israel. I am not suggesting that Israelis hide their dissent (as happens in Palestine and elsewhere in the Arab world). But please understand that those who truly hate Jews--politically, religiously, culturally, ethnically--are using the words of leading anti-Zionist Jews to recruit new members... and add a veneer of intellectual legitimacy to their efforts to debase Jews, both in Israel and elsewhere. It all starts with the double standard. Does Levy not understand that his society is AT WAR? The Arabs clearly understand this, which is why if current intellectual trends continue (with Jewish assistance), Israel will not survive another generation.
