    "the lethal Goldstone report, even if it is greatly exaggerated."- Harel// The Goldstone Report was produced by a fair minded team, headed by a Zionist Jew. The first body that called the report "deeply flawed" was the US State Department, and this by now has been often repeated (Harel uses "greatly exaggerated). Justice Goldston has invited the critics to point out the supposed "deep flaws", but this task is apparently too hard because such flaws have not been exposed. It is more likely that the state Department's reaction was simply political. When the Report came out, Goldstone was immediately demonized in Israel, by both Right and Left, including Haaretz writers. Before Harel and his friends try to bring realism into the Israeli paranoid mindset, let them take care of their own prejudices. Goldstone made many complaints, most of which cannot be investigated by the army itself because it concerns very high level commanders and politicians (ordering the destruction of infrastructure, killing of policemen, etc.). Mr. Harel, better get cured of paranoia before some Israelis are indicted of war crimes, at which point you will probably joined the crowd screaming "anti-Semitism".
