big style. Worldwide, governments and people have seen the TV footage, read the report and recoiled at the large number of civilian deaths and the circumstances surrounding many of them. 4,000 homes demolished in a 10-day war is a particularly startling and troubling result that can only lead people to despise Israel's actions. And pilloring Goldstone as 'anti-Jewish' and 'antisemitic' just cuts no ice whatsoever outside Israel, as he is seen to have delivered a fair report based on the available evidence. The fact that he is Jewish but did NOT bias his report in Israel's favour in fact rebounds to his credit. The Israeli idea that the state can do whatever it likes, without any normal restraints, and then talk its way out of it by PR spin, just does not work for the rest of the world.
