    Bill Moyer devoted the whole hour on Bill Moyer's Journal last night to an interview with Judge Goldstone. I hope someone will show this program in its entirety in Israel. It probably would not change the minds of many on this forum, but hopefully there are some Israelis who can be persuaded that the attacks on Goldstone are pure propaganda. Bill Moyers, as devil's advocate, ably presented the rightwing Israeli view. But Goldstone was unshaken. His best line: Implicit in Netanyahu's call for new laws of warfare is a recognition that Israel (along with Hamas) violated the current law. Any fair individual who studies Judge Goldstone's record in examining human rights abuses in South Africa, Rwanda, Bosnia and Kosovo, and listens to him parrying Moyer's presentation of the Israeli arguments, must conclude that this is a good and brave man who did the best he could to gather eveidence and apply current international law to his findings of fact.
