    Goldstone reminds me exactly of the choice of Clarence Thomas to sit on the US Supreme Court. Thomas is black and so unasailable. Goldstone was chosen because he is Jewish not for his brilliant Jurisprudential value. There are a lot of clever international lawyers. Goldstone did not have to accept the position, but did so to aggrandize himself. No-one who deeply cares for the state of Israel and its existence could write an report like this without thinking of its political and strategic consequences for the State. So each time Israel defends itself it should take a team of international human right and humantarian lawyers with them, and ignore Israel's moral and ethical obligation of self defense. The goal of many in the international legal community is to deligitimize Israel. In Goldstone's report, he certainly helped them.
