    You, Mr. Levy have purposely described an ephemeral situation to fit your analysis of the biblical saying:-"we exrracted honey from stone". Sorry, the reality described is far more speculative than it actually is. You try to justify the fact that the need for a referendum is unecessary. The ideology of the extreme left has been salvaged. It is unfortunate that, Mr. Levy has to go to such preemptive war so that in the future when the occasion arise about changing the fundmental basic laws of the State of Israel, the left can rely on the precedent. It is verry cunning, but so transparent. The authorities are the one who had to be restrained (re: Shaham case), not the great number of otherwise law abiding demonstrators, that are claming their say in the runnig of a democratic state. Mr. Levy has poured in his analysis every Dick and Jerry of the Israeli mosaic components, so that he may convince himself that the extreme left really has won, and that the regular Israel, has lost. Mind you, history will remember the greates test of Israel democracy, not because of Mr. Levy's unfortunate conclusion, but because the average citizen has shown to the highest authority that they still demand the right to participate in the future development, political or otherwise of the State of Israel.
