Gideon Levy- Yok!

FINALLY! Someone called a spade a spade. Not a Fish posted a piece by that Anti-Semite from Der Sturmer (excuse me, Haaretz), urging people to visit Sinai and ignore the Security warnings. Why? Because anytime he can mock any part of Israel's Defense Forces, Gideon Levy does. As Not a Fish notes, 'his hateful vitriol against the Israeli establishment may have cost lives. Today we get an idea of just how dangerous Gideon Levy can be.'

And this is what Levy had to say, just a few weeks ago:

This is not the first time in the past four years that the anti-terrorism unit, with its panoply of officers, has issued similar warnings, though this time the warning is said to be "graver than usual." If Israelis decide nonetheless to spend the holiday in Sinai, as would indeed appear to be the case, it will mark the continuation of a very unusual phenomenon here: Israelis are ignoring the warnings of the defense establishment, casting doubt on its considerations and not being automatically persuaded by its rationale.[…]Even if the defense establishment has solid information about Sinai, the timing of its warnings is problematic, after four years of warnings in which not a hair of the tens of thousands of Israelis who went to Sinai was harmed. After all, it's always easier to frighten people, even if it's not certain that it's necessary - what's known popularly as "covering your ass." No one pays for false warnings here, not for the scare campaign about Iraq's chemical and biological weapons, and nor for the warnings about Sinai.

Scary huh?

You know you're right. This guy may have costs people lives. Incredible that someone would say something like that, impossible to understand.

You know you're right, this may have cost people lives. I find it impossible to understand why he would choose to say something like that.
