    Good interview RL – I downloaded it and sent it to a few friends. In the interview you touched on many of the essential points emphasized in your blogs to which it could serve as an introduction.

    Good interview IMO too.
    I particularly noted the description of how Academic open-mindedness and rigorous standards shot itself in the foot. Indeed, they’re so smart ’cause we’re so stupid. Or the road to Hell that’s paved with good intentions.

    I just managed to hear this broadcast and you mention Goldstone and comment that he was supposedly a brilliant student etc.
    I wonder if you picked up on a link to a PDF file that Stan posted on What Happened at the mosque and inside Goldstone’s mind?

    On page 10 there is a review of a book by a person doing research for the Race Relations Board in SA and she finishes with Goldstone’s integrity regarding a report that he did with regard to the ANC fight with the Inkata Party.
    It seems that his most recent report could be seen a deja vu.

    If it’s not filters its gremlins.
    The link did not appear. Hmph!

    I forgot to change my language setting. Getting old is turning out to be stressful.

    If the Shalit deal goes through as generally expected in the beginning of January, Israel would have handed Hamas not one, but two victories: One over Israel with such an advantageous deal, the other over Fath as the release will coincide with the upcoming January elections for the Palestinian Presidency. The latter, in my opinion, is the reason why Hamas has been dragging its feet.
