Uh Oh. Things are reaching a sorry state when Israeli competence cannot be criticised. I appreciate that US politicians can't criticise Israeli policy and survive, but I didn't know they can't even say when Israel is carrying out that policy very badly. Still, with enough journlists around, there will always be someone to drive a wedge between allies and to disparrage any politician no matter what side of an issue s/he comes down on.
Good for the judge: entrapment is not a way we wish to see justice done.
PS: I was surpriserised to see that "...the driver was pressurised to change his statement..." It does not seem right to that this should be allowerised.

“"It is heartbreaking that these hidden crimes still exist in our society and threaten the well-being of a generation of girls."
Ask a journalist why these crimes are still hidden in Britain. Ask them why current child abuse is not being reported daily with the same vigour that 40-year-old child abuse is. Ask them who is responsible for this cover-up.”
You've heard of "Disgusted, Tunbridge Wells"? Well, I live in Holland Park and I've Had It. Up to here! An old curmudgeon, I rant and rave about things I read, see or hear in the News. Frequently sarcastic, irreverent and libertarian; often wrong - but never uncertain.
