Gideon Levy did not have to look to cases of leftists' buses being stopped, or Arabs being beaten. Buses of rightwing protesters (of Zu Artzeinu) were stopped in 1995 (see http://www.afsi.org/OUTPOST/95OCT/oct8.htm) and Arutz Sheva's site constantly reports about rightwing protesters beaten by the police. Of course, Haaretz never bothers to report the violence, so naturally Gideon Levy only knows about the Arabs and leftists who are beaten. I do given Gideon Levy credit for making the point that the police should not be using violent tactics against ANY group. No one should support police brutality for a "just" cause--police never learn where to draw the line. Unfortunately, Israelis have justified police brutality against Arabs thinking that this is the only way to fight Arab violence. This is a mistake, and we all lose in the long run from such behavior.
