    I wonder what the Israeli people, whom he so condescendingly calls the masses, would have to do to earn the respect of Gideon Levy. Demonstrate against the IDF while the north was being bombarded? This demonstration was not aimed at how to prevent the next war, peace talks with Syria, or ending the occupation. Those causes have seen their own demonstrations, which have also been ignored by the government. And the word "hollow" has been used before by David Grossman to describe our leaders, and borrowed by Gideon Levi in his unjustified attempt to degrade the demonstrators. Levi would do better to point an accusing finger at Olmert, who seems to have developed a thicker skin than ever, and who has the gall to ignore the Israeli people and sit glued in his chair and toil on. It looks like we will have to continue to take to the streets again and again. I wonder how many demonstrations it will take to make him listen: You're fired, Olmert. Get the message?
