    Another merrit of the Goldstone report is that it upholds a mirror into our faces. And seemingly, not all of us dare to look at the warts on our noses. The loud screaming against the report perhaps is due to the clarity some warts can be seen, be they Israeli or Palestinian. Reading the report -without the motive for finding a stick to hit 'the other' is a good start for a better understanding of the 'death embrace' in which two closely related brother-peoples are entangled. There is truly no need to blame the Jews or the Arabs or the gentiles, the 'anti-semites' or the barbarians. At one point or another, we all develop warts on our noses. Success with completing your reading of the report. Kol ha cavod, mabruk -congrats- : for delivering such impressive and most difficult Document
