The whole scoop, Gene, is that the situation is finally inverse. The extradiction and conviction of Nazi collaborators is a routine thing and as soon as you personally trace proofs about someone, feel free to sue. casting of shadow of doubt, a primary investigation, let alone conviction of a former Lithuanian living in Israel on grounds of his WWII crimes was not even a theorethical possibility. Previous offical inquirements of Lithuanian prosec. on other suspects were met by Israel State with dead silence. The reason of this a priori impossibility is the same which allows you to dispense with statements like "prosecutor, whose family members no doubt still keep in possesion Jewish belongings" without blinking one eye. What indignates you in blood libel that doesn't indignate you in your own accusation? What element of deception scheme is lacking in the latter which is in the former?
