You say brave, honest and accurate. I say disengenous, clearly wrong and not brave at all. He knows that Israelies and Jews will do nothing to him and he hopes to be regarded in a way that will not happen. His behaviour based on classic judicial standards is unacceptable. What behaviour? Well acting as an advocate, rather than a judge. Judges make their decisions and keep quiet. They do not respond, let alone, attack critics or those that do not accept their judgement. Moreover, they don't share confidences about the process leading up to their decisions, something apparently Goldstone did with his daughter. In any event, there is no evidence in his report of verifying the authenticity of the testimony he heard. He might as well have had his pajamas on and had Islamic terrorists read him good night stories about "bad Jews".
