Yonit Levi is Channel 2’s anchor goddess.
She has been having a few bad days lately after some comments and gestures she made about the plight of the Palestinian population pissed off a bunch of viewers that write the talk backs on some of the news sites. In fact these hotheads went as far as putting up a petition online (now closed) calling for her dismissal and they got 35,000 signatures. Things got so bad that the people at the competing Channel 10 actually proclaimed their support and that they were standing behind her.
Apparently things got to the point that she was receiving some violent threats from a bunch of yahoos and a talk from her bosses asking her to tone down her alleged reactions. Now to be fair, Yonit Levi, is an extraordinary anchor woman. Aside from being a real hottie, she is a sharp, articulate, intelligent, very factual and professional anchor woman (you get we like her right?). She is sometimes called “The Ice Queen” for her cold, almost detached, professional approach. Personally, I think its wonderful and refreshing compared to some of the mindless, mushy twits we see on TV.
This war has received unprecedented support in Israel. Maybe as a result of the last war – that many felt was a slap in the face with the bumbling idiots that were running the show. Maybe its the fact that we had enough of turning the other cheek and getting shit on by a bunch of fundamentalist hate mongers. We feel like this is a just war and we won’t take any criticism for it.
In a post a while ago I discussed Fox News as an example of how low TV News Channels can take the news and the absurd of having to sell yourself as “Fair and Balanced” when that’s the last thing you ever will be. Yonit Levi is ACTUALLY fair and balanced and doesn’t need to sell it. She has been doing this for a long time and has been presenting the news in professional even tone, void of personal views and opinions.
In short, Yonit we love you ! Keep up the great work.

I was quite shocked at the response of some of our public to Yonit’s remarks. She is the best news presenter in Israel and should not have to deal with people who do not agree with what she says and to such an extreme extent.
Yonit keep up the good work, you are great and we love you.

I just wanted to add my support for Yonit Levi, I think she is the best anchor person on TV. She has a pleasing voice to listen to and is excellent at both reporting and interviewing.
Don’t let her go.

The petition and the response to Levi’s tears or compassion is another evidence to the racism in the Nazi racist inhumane society in Israel. Any argument or objection is faced by the accusation by being an anti-Semitic or a self-hating Jew.
This is racism forced by deep arrogance and ignorance.
