11. I don't offer to give flowers to those who perpretrate violence

Nothing shameful about pointing out the fact that those who do, even in irony, ought to be taken to task.

It's a sick way to start an article - no matter what the rhetorical intent.

I do not literally believe that Gideon Levy is planning to send those people flowers, nor do I literally believe the various similarly unpleasant things said by a wide variety of RW talk show hosts here in the US.

I am complete honest and completely genuine in this belief.

I believe that even a remark in jest of this nature is completely inappropriate. I daresay, under other circumstances, with different players involved, you would agree.

But because you think Gideon make "a number of excellent points" you give him a pass.

That is unfortunate.
