Gideon Levy has it all wrong. What Israel says is not "they started", but "we started". We started to end the occupation, and they responded with Qassam and kidnappig as though they wish to get us back by force. And if we don't come back out of our own initiative then let's kdinapp us back one by one. Why? Because ending the occupation endangers the myth of the eternal Palestinian victim. How to cope with actual self-determination in the absence of an occupier who can be made responsible for anything going wrong in the territories, who can serve as a cover for Palestinian corruption and mismanagement, the common enemy who can provide both unity between mutually exclusive Palestinian movements - and electricity!
