Judge Yuval Shadmi wrote in the verdict: “I will say that the state is not authorized to caress with one hand the Jewish ‘ideological’ felons, and flog with its other hand the Arab ‘ideological’ felons.” Robert Fisk, in a recent lecture, discussed the propaganda efforts in the West that refute the e-mails I’ve received from those outraged by the judge’s ruling (2:13):

Human Rights Council—which condemned Israel’s war crimes committed in the Gaza Massacre—was “scantly mentioned”. The focus of Western leaders were on false assertions of the ‘threat posed by Iran’.
