Goldstone was not barred from his grandson's Bar Mitzvah - what happened was that a protest was scheduled outside the synagogue that day and Goldstone agreed not to attend so as not to spoil the boy's special event. I happen to feel that a protest outside a religious event was ill advised as it sets a dangerous precedent, but this was misrepresented as a ban. Tikkun is a one man affair, and Mr. Lerner has his own knee-jerk reaction to Goldstone. I hardly think it newsworthy. What would be newsworthy is if Mr. Lerner had read the IDF response to Goldstone and admitted that the Goldstone report was riddled with falsehoods and unsubstantiated innuendos. It would certainly be news if Ha-aretz did so as well.
