    The Goldstone commission is a commission, NOT a court of law. Its job is to review the available evidence and decide if there is a case to answer. It decided that there was indeed a convinving case to answer. It now goes to the next stage of a full inquiry, if Israel and Hamas comply, or to the Criminal Court. At either, all witnesses will be summoned and evidence taken and tested. It doesn't really matter a stuff if AIPAC tells Ross to tell Hilary it's biased, the process is in place and, despite squeals of protest, tricks, obfuscation and mud slinging by the Israel-firsters, the truth will emerge. Goldstone has done his part flawlessly, though he should have made MUCH more publicly of Israel blocking access to the investigation, shielding witnesses and basically trying to pervert the course of justice. Israel is led by a real bunch of gangsters. That's the kind of tricks Serbia and Sudan tried to pull but it didn't stop the guilty parties ending up in jail in the Hague.
