If anyone doubts Gideon Levy's words all they have to do is view the thousands of comments posted on other Israeli media online websites every day. Any Jew who works for or voted for Obama is called a self hater and anti-semite and American Jews are denigrated and abased every day as not being Jewish enough or pro-Israel enough. The Israelis seem to forget that without the Diaspora Israel would be a third world country at best. Where do they think all the billions of dollars that Israeli charities count on come from? The orthodox and right wing? Sorry, but definitely NO. Their increasing xenophobia and extreme right wing beliefs are more dangerous to the future of Israel than any missile from Iran.
