    According to the prevailing conventional wisdom, that A. Kam committed a crime, the bystanders, that is, the witnesses should remain silent while human abuse and outright crimes against humanity should be allowed to go on, unreported and unpunished. That happened in World War Tw, and Israel has repeatedly accused 'the world' for remaining silent while the atricities were 'allowed' to go on. Although what takes place in the West bank is not any near what had yaken place in Europe, the principle is the same regardless of the order of magnitude. Crimes ARE and have been perpetrated in the W.B in the name of national security, the alibi used to cover up the planned takeover of the occupied territory. It is the world community which should pressure Israel to let Kam off the hook for exposing the undermining of a 2 state solution and lying about its real intentions.
