Let it be clear. I believe that the Left-wing activists, who protest against the Israeli government’s handling of Gaza Strip in general and the flotilla in particular, are stupid, closed-minded, misguided and effectively are fifth column.
However, none of those attributes justify any form of attack on them by Right-wing activists. Not the smoke grenade, not personal attack on Uri Avneri and his ilk, nothing except for counter-demonstration.
Freedom of expression counts the most when one wants to express highly annoying opinions. Freedom of expression, in particular the freedom to question any of our sacred cows, is one of the foundations of our strength.
Let’s not deprive ourselves of real strength by threatening or silencing those misguided people!
