    The distinction between Israel and Jews is bogus. The security of Jews is dependant on the existence of a Jewish state. History has taught us this lesson well and repeatedly. Yes, there are periods of quiet and yes there are oasis of tolerance where being Jewish doesn't automatically endanger you, but this tranquility and peace seem always to be temporary. Having said that and despite the fact that I think that the Goldstone Report is nothing short of bogus, both because the evidentiary basis of the report is unreliable, the process of the Committee and its composition was unjudicial, I nevertheless believe that it is entirely wrong for anyone to intermeddle in the Goldstone's families personal lives. There is plenty of opportunity to criticize the imbecilic report. While I understand the great upset of the Jewish community in South Africa, a place where their security is fragile, those that are upset should have recused themselves from Synagogue if they could not contain themselves.
