    i: "johnboy christine chinkin wrote a letter to the sunday times in january 2009 accusing israel of war crimes." You are insisting that an expert on int'l humanitarian and human rights law **NOT** hold an opinion. That is a preposterous notion. I: "that showed bias" No, that shows that SHE HELD AN OPINION. The issue then becomes wether she can put aside her opinion to dispassionately examine the facts that come before that inquiry. The report shows that she can. I: "and disqualified her from taking part in the commission." No, what would disqualify her would be A CONFLICT OF INTEREST. Not the fact that as an expert she held an opinion on a matter within her area of expertise. By *your* criteria it would be almost impossible to appoint any judges to, say, the Israel High Court. The issue is NOT wether judges hold opinions, because you delude yourself if you think that they aren't all opinionated. They most certainly are.
