    Since 1973 the left wing in Israel has gradually dug its own grave and is now on the verge of jumping into it. Levy is among those with the best shovels, as he digs and digs and digs himself deeper in the pit of morass, gloom and doom. Is it the decline of the left that allowed the ascension of the right? Or is it that the majority now believe the right more than they left? Is the left credible any more? Well, the polls say no. Levy, however, will continue to weep and wail that Israel is destined for doom, that the world is against us for justified reasons, and that we should be ashamed of ourselves. The truth is, however, that the left is simply ashamed of itself, and its impotence to do anything other that stay sucked into the Palestinian question first, foremost, and almost exclusively. It's been 36 years since 1973. Where will the left be in 2045? Will there be a left at all?
