    mr. levy repeats like a mantra the "greater (...) violence (...) of the occupier", without taking into account the plenty of israeli attempts to stop the occupation, without taking into account the palestinian refusal to come back to the negotiation table, without taking into account the fact that in 2005 israel left gaza and freed it from the "greater (...) violence (...) of the occupier" - just for getting in return a greater violence than that of stones, namely the lethal violence of rockets from gaza. the naivete of mr. levy -according to which israel just has to end the occupation and everything will be all right- is an insult for everybody who is not caught by pro-palestinian propaganda, but has a bit of background-knowledge of the middle-east-conflict. his own hypocrisy is revealed in his statement "hass, like me, is against violence. (...) who wants to see children killed by rocks, citizens torn apart by an improvised explosive device, or teenagers who have been shot? BUT resistance to violence must be direct, comprehensive and fair. it must include the resistance to the occupier’s violence." among others, it's this "but" and what follows the "but", which reveals his hypocrisy. everybody who thinks that the israeli "occupation" of the westbank is reason for the violence of the palestinians may read the constitution of fatah which was written before 1967. i guess, mr. levy (and mrs. hass) know what's written in it, and therefore their hypocrisy is even bigger. so, when they recommend or allow palestinians to use stones against the "occupier", actually they are inciting palestinians to go on with the fatah credo written in article 12 of the fatah constitution: "complete liberation of palestine, and eradication of zionist economic, political, military and cultural existence." and with the fatah credo written in article 19: "armed struggle is a strategy and not a tactic, and the palestinian arab people's armed revolution is a decisive factor in the liberation fight and in uprooting the zionist existence, and this struggle will not cease unless the zionist state is demolished and palestine is completely liberated."
