JoJo you missed several points Levy was making: 1. Israeli society has moved so far to the right, that what used to be considered "moderate," (Oz's political and moral views), is now considered "extremist" and to be censored. 2. Levy never said the good MD couldn't voice his opinion, but how does one MD's negative view of Oz, entitle him to decide for all MD's that Oz should not speak? It is the MD who is provoking fear and anger by not allowing Oz to speak-just like McCarthy in the US-who labeled people who worked for human rights and justice as "traitors," so much so that news corporations were frightened into having any "left winger" including Pete Seeger, the Weavers, etc. on American TV for years. This is where Israel is heading by caving into fear. 3. Your analysis of Levy is so emotional and fraught with fear and anger that you state inaccurate and frankly libelous statements, such as Levy is "in support and favor[s the] mass murder by terrorists. Given man's nature, democracy is a work always in progress. If it is not nurtured it will disappear into government witch hunts, such a what now exists in the Knesset and ultra orthodox circles.
