Goldstone should have had the judgement and insight to sift 'chatter' from reality. We now see he did not have the level of neutrality and discernment necessary for this sensitive investigation. His bias was there to begin with, he ignored some material, he included other dubious ones. And then without allowing for the fact that he had masses of missing evidence, an important hidden dynamic prevailed to guide his judgement. Remember he was pushed off his pedestal by Israel who ignored him. He then struck with harsh force to punish Israel. His personal arrogance guided him. What poor ethics he has. His subsequent mealy mouthed pronouncements on TV confirm further that he is self-delusional and is a liar at base. Of course, someone so arrogant does not have the personal tools to unravel his own self (Jewish) hatred. Richard, one of the reasons for the immense anger against you among world Jewry is that you acted as badly as the "usual" suspects, the anti-semitics of old and new.
