Goldstone vs. the Mob

In effect what Alan Dershowitz and Yaacov Lozowick have suggested with their letters to the editor is that since they disagree with the findings of Judge Richard Goldstone’s Gaza report, he is fair game for all who take issue with him and should be treated horribly (“Goldstone Critics Have a Real Case,” January 14).

This strikes me as having more in common with the values of the mob that Alexander Hamilton railed against in the Federalist Papers than anything that has sprung from Jewish or Zionist traditions.
