    OK so now we have the great self-appointed defender of Israel passing sentence on a new enemy number 1 - Richard Goldstone - internationally recognised jurist, proud Jew and supporter of Israel. What counts is his status as a legal expert - nothing else. Its what counted in Dershowitz's career too - his Jewishness and Israel support weren't issues. So too with Goldstone. The Report which I doubt any of the Talkbackers have read - I have - turns on the word "intentionality" and that's a legal test. Did Hamas intentionally fire rockets at innocent civilians - if yes they must be subject to an investigation. If the IDF intentionally attacked innocent Palestinian civilians during Cast Lead, the same applies. Dershowitz always needs publicity. Israel needs to show accountability, if not to a UN Report then to us the nation.
