    ...as a man of integrity, attention to nuance and detail, and faithfully carrying out his duties. Israelis won't get much traction with the death penalty angle with Republicans or Democrats, so the whole smear was an exercise in embarrassment for Ynet more than anything else. There is no one that has read the entire 575 page Goldstone Report that can remain unmoved by the severe gravity of what happened. The conclusions were valid. The report found that both sides committed war crimes and possible crimes against humanity. If Richard Goldstone was not capable of producing a report to Israel's satisfaction, then find an objective team of international observers from outside Israel that can do the job. But this time, enter into a signed agreement that you will act on the actual conclusions, and this time not shoot the messenger.
