L: "Even Goldstone says his report proves nothing." No, he did not say that at all. He said that his was a fact-finding mission, and it established certain facts (war crimes were committed). But he stresses that his report is exactly that i.e. it is not a judgement on a criminal court. He also (correctly) points out that his report is not admissible as evidence in any trial. JUSTICE therefore requires further steps i.e. an independent judicial inquiry to see who (if anyone) can be indicted for those offenses, and a prosecutor be appointed to collect the evidence to present to that trial. Think of it this way: his report is the equivalent of a police brief to a prosecutor: the prosecutor can decide on the basis of that brief that a crime has been committed, but he certainly can not introduce that brief into trial and claim that it is "evidence". It isn't. It's a brief. So is the Goldstone Report.
