Answer this, Judge Goldstone

Writing in the JPost, Haviv Rettig Gur poses some hard questions for the indignant Judge Goldstone.
So Goldstone owes Israelis an answer to a basic moral question. In the words of one Israeli observer: "Are you in the habit, Judge Goldstone, of accepting commissions whose political agenda you must first expunge so that the mandate meets the most elementary standard of fairness?"

Some day, international law may hold the key to human dignity and happiness. But in using the terminology of law in a clear situation of biased political wrangling, that day is being pushed farther away.

Israelis and many Jews would like to know, Judge Goldstone, if by the time this is all over, you feel your contribution - your reputation and Jewish name - was helpful or detrimental to the goals of international peace and a lawful world order.

Or have you, with shocking naivete, allowed your Jewishness and judicial prestige to be abused by bodies whose motivations amount to thinly veiled bigotry?
Read the whole thing.

I said earlier what I thought of Goldstone and there is no need to repeat it here. But Goldstone has a lot to answer for and he hasn't even addressed the substance of his critics case against the report that bears his name. I'm not holding my breath waiting for him to ever repudiate it.

Give up on Goldstone. He has made up his mind. His hate is set in stone! The blind refuses to see.

G-d could come down and explain the facts and Goldstone would still would refuse to accept them.

The man is a flaming anti-Semite. Period.

You are singing to the choir.

Israel is viewed as the pariah because this is the way the world WISHES for Israel/Jews to be viewed.

Where we go from here is quite another story.
