Shalom, ..Beach Boy, #146. You wrote : "Judging by the number of insults,threats and cynical talkback responses, the article was apparently perceived as a painful truth that is difficult to object to". (Pls. read my #3 above). When you see that somebody's fanaticism makes him so blind that he doesn't even perceive his country's/own interest, you feel yourself powerless to do anything. Unless you are so courageous and honest, as Gideon Levy, that you throw the truth to the blind faces. Sorry, if my comment is harsh.
