    It is obvious that the backlash against over left tendencies brings over extreme right reactions. Why doesn't the left moderate its claims. Forget right or wrong, the issue is to keep a decent democracy. Every time people hear the left claims saying terrorists have the right to do their actions, people move away from the left, and also away from all what the left represents. And it represents civic justice, education, equality and many other essential values. The claim that ideologists bury this country under their exterior political agenda, should be pointed to both extremists on the right and also on the left. As much as I support the right parties, I too am scared of what is going on, and I think only the left can be the first to moderate itself - suggestion: remove Hizballa flags from left demonstrations (again, even if its against left parties ideology). After all, the left always stands for going the extra mile toward thee opponents, isn't it so?
