What do you say now, Mr. Goldstone?

"Yes, the inhabitants know, or should know, that without the Israelis (or "Americanos," in the local dialect) they have no one to rely on at the moment. This fills the heart - ours, anyway - with pride. Too bad there has to be such a sad event in order to invoke, when all is said and done, our high morality.

"Angels in blue and white," we call ourselves, and this bit of self-indulgence brings tears of emotion to our eyes every time. "Thank you," we whisper to us and kiss our hand, "thank you for existing." But will anyone remember? Will anyone chalk up points for our side?
Where are you now, Mr. Goldstone? Don't we deserve to have most of the items in your report erased?"
