If someone complained as much about the Union as the Haaretz clique complains about Israel and its never-ending efforts to survive in a sea of hate, he'd pack them up and send them south. Just look at what he did to Copperhead Democratic Ohio congressman (the Copperheads were Northern politicians who consistently took the side of the Confederacy in an argument) Clement Vladingham. When Vladingham had gotten to the point of being as insufferable as -- say Gideon Levy -- Lincoln had a detachment of soldiers put him in carriage, brought him to the front lines, pointed him south and told him to keep walking if he disliked the Union so much. And thus Clement ended up in Confederate territory. Wonder if Gideon Levy would enjoy Gaza?
