    I have an idea. I'll wait 28 years before levelling an accusation of murder against someone. Better still, I'll wait until the accused person is in a coma so that he can't respond. Also, I'll wait until the only witness to this double murder, a photographer (who failed to take any pictures of this) is dead. And then I'll claim to have reported this to the authorities 20 years ago, even though they have no record of it. Surely nobody, however stupid, deranged or plain anti-Israel, would believe this? Oh wait, yes there are and they are posting on Haaretz..... The anti-Israel mob remind me of the residents of Salem in Arthur Miller's 'The Crucible'; level any accusation against Israel, however bizarre, and they will suck it up.
