Oh so if Israel co-operates then when the pre-determined outcome is anounced Israel is seen as having signed on and any reaction is bad sport and if Israel doesn't co-operates then thats the reason for a 1 sided judgement. i.e. heads u loose tails u loose. Bill it's not about my seeing the forest for the trees it's about Israel getting a fair trail - one based on facts - the truth - not on politics. Even Jack the Ripper would get a fair trail.
