    kill innocent people, women and children, without paying the price. Israel is now paying the price and it will have to live with such an ugly label from here on end, regardless, of how the U.N. and/or the U.S. vote on the Goldstone Report. From here on end Israel will be recognized as a nation that committed war crimes and even crimes against humanity. There is no getting around that. What a shame for Israel to end up in this situation. But then, Israel has been getting away with murder, literally, but no more. Lots of people now will think that the labels of "war crimes or crimes against humanity" which are now part of Israel history and are well deserved!
