In the 1980's and 1990's, Israel wasn't delegitimized as it is now. It wasn't threatened with destruction and annihilation. Nor were its citizens butchered in the streets with suicide bombings. And the occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and southern Lebanon was in full force. Israel retreated from Gaza and south Lebanon, and parts of the West Bank, to be rewarded with delegitimization and only to see Lebanon and Gaza become launching pads of jihadist terrorism, combined with a resurge of worldwide anti-Semitism whose animus has shifted from "the Jew" to "the Jewish state". Racial anti-Semitism isn't politically correct. Political anti-Semitism is. But no matter what the snake wears, it remains an ugly, miserable, poisonous snake. And no matter what, the Jewish people always survives it. I think Gideon Levy should spend some time in London or Marseille, In Madrid or Malmö, wearing a kipa and strolling around. And see how it feels.
