    We have seen this bad movie before and likely to see it again. Israel will get Uncle Sam and the EU cavalry to come to the rescue once again. There is a reason why this conflict has gone past 60 years and it's because of actions such as this. If Israel had been convicted decades ago of it's first war crimes - the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians for starters back in 1948, we wouldn't be having this debate with this recidivist client state. Instead, the problem child state is at again crying to mommy and daddy to rescue it one more time from it's misdeeds. Nothing will change and that's because nothing has changed. Settlement expansion and occupation continues because Israel relies on friends like USA,UK, and now Sarkozki France to keep the charade going - war crimes galore by Israel for decades - but of course EU and American concern now is to make sure Goldstone report never sees the light of day. Need I say more?
