    just so long as it isn't just unadulterated cynicism. Now, how to spot the difference. For example, are you as skeptical of Israeli/IDF claims...such as in film director James Miller's case when in 2008 after a campaign by the victims family supported by the UK Gov Israel finally admitted responsibility and offered £1.75M to the family to dissuade the UK from seeking extradition of the guilty killer. 5 years for some kind of justice after several years of Israeli stonewalling and obfuscations. They did not investigate thoroughly in the Miller case above until forced to. Nor in the Tom Hurndall case. Only after a campaign by Hurndalls family, supported by then FM Jack Straw, [The IDF initially refused more than a routine internal inquiry, which concluded that Hurndall was shot accidentally in the crossfire] former Israeli army sergeant Taysir Hayb received an eight-year jail sentence for the killing, eventually. Hayb said a policy of shooting at unarmed civilians existed at the time. Ouch! Now tell me you trust the Israeli Gov or IDF accounts. Go on?
