Gideon Levy, the baron of deceit industry, deconstructed

This headline was depressing indeed:

Survey: Most Israeli Jews would support apartheid regime in Israel

Even if interpreted by the self-appointed moral compass of our nation, a survey is a survey and statistics is statistics. That is, if you forget "Lies, damned lies, and statistics", but you would think that one can manipulate the numbers only so far?

Nope, the good old saying should be modified. It should read nowadays "Lies, damned lies, statistics and Gideon Levy".

Read the expose by Ben-Dror Yemini: Haaretz, Gideon Levy, and the Israel apartheid canard.

Statistics are infinitely manipulable as any statistics practitioner knows. Whether they'll admit it is another story.

That true, and a malicious character like the one mentioned in this post does his considerable best to skew the results.
