LINK OF THE DAY: The remarkable Israeli journalist
Gideon Levy has ended 2018 with a devastating article published by Middle East Eye entitled In 2018 Israel’s Mask Fnally Came Off. Levy is the journalist, employed by the newspaper Haaretz who, 25 or 30 years ago went for a visit to the West Bank, observed the illegally  repressive regime run against the Palestinian residents by Israel (hitherto unknown to him),  and decided to make it his life’s work to make known the facts of the authoritarian occupation Israel has been permitted by the outside world to build, with the enthusiastic support of the United  States, the complaisance of the rest of the international community, and the disgust of people who care abut human rights wherever they are being trampled into the dust. For his heroic journalism, Levy has been honoured around the world, but has also at times been so reviled by the orthodox Israeli society that he has scarcely been able to  leave his house without being besieged by attacks from right-wing Israelis.  Read his article,which forecasts Israel’s formal annexation of the entire West Bank, here.
