    Of course criticism is legal, valid and can be very helpful. The ancient Hebrew prophets were great practitioners of constructive criticism. But this can not be said for the one note diatribes of Gideon Levy. Gideon Levy has a black and white view of the Middle East Conflict. For him Israel is 100% to blame, and the Palestinians, including Hamas, as we can see in his current article, 100% innocent lovers of peace and toleration. For Gideon Levy (also for Amira Hass, and, I suspect, also for the editors of Haaretz) no Israeli is good, no Palestinian is bad. It is as simple as that. His complete identification with the Palestinians, and his complete hate towards his own country, documented in his many articles, are sufficiente proof that his criticism is biased. (By the way I searched the Haaretz archives, and was unable to find any article where Gideon Levy mentions suicide bombers)
