Ha’aretz Editor: “I Hate Israeli Settlers”

In an interview published on November 7 by Israel’s Globes online business magazine, Ha’aretz editorial board member Gideon Levy spoke frankly and openly about his “hatred” of Jews making their lives in Judea and Samaria.

“I have no problem being the most hated person in Israel,” Levy told Globes.  His newspaper has dedicated itself to bringing down the settlement enterprise in the biblical heartland, and consistently promotes policies which would decrease the size of Israel’s territory and empower local Arabs.

“I need another Intifada, or to write another book,” Levy told Globes.  He said it is “hard for me” when there is no upheaval in the day’s news, and said he loves action and danger.

Such is his distaste for religious Jewry in the biblical heartland, that he proudly declares his hate for Israel’s “settlers”.

“They don’t just bother me. I have feelings of hatred towards them,” Levi said. “They embarrass me, they humiliate me in the things they say and do, with their very existence.”

Levy has won several international and Israeli journalistic awards for his coverage on behalf of Palestinian rights.  He lives in Ramat Aviv with his Swedish long-time girlfriend, Catrin Ormestad.

  1. Bill Bilek says:

    "Hatred of others" is what the Sages call "sinas chinam" — baseless hatred. It lost us our nation once. Levy is working, very hard, to see us lose it again, and, apparently for the same reasons.

  2. Myriam Obadia says:

    His hatred seems directed to the whole nation of Israel -both the Jewish people and its land- not just to the "settlers" of Judea-Samaria. I do wonder how a Jew who lives in Israel can push so far his self-hatred as to encompass all the Jews who live in Israel. Maybe Mr. Levi should ask himself what he is doing here and whether it wouldn't be better for him to move to an other country, more in tune with his wishes for renewed strife. How about Syria?

  3. There truly is nothing to saw about this pathology. Those ruled by this kind of hate eventually self-destruct…ken yerbu.
