In Gideon Levy?s world of heartbreak the deaths of eight Israelis resulting from Kassam attacks are inconsequential but Levy doesn't have to face the families of three-year-old Afik Zahavi and 50-year-old Mordechai Yosepov of Sderot killed in June 2004. Or those of Dana Galkovitch, a 22-year-old Israeli, killed in Netiv Ha'asara kibbutz or the two Israeli-Arab shepherds killed by Kassams last month in Kibbutz Nachal Oz. It matters not to Levy that Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Al Aksa Martyrs have all claimed responsibility for the various attacks. As far as he is concerned, the Kassams are harmless, the nightmares they cause to Israeli children under attack are inconsequential. If only Israel would only do this or do that, then somehow mysteriously, the recently elected Hamas which vows to "kill Jews everywhere" will suddenly start throwing flowers across the green line. Gideon Levy?s big secret is that he also believes in the tooth fairy.
