IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING why Israel isn't welcoming the U.N.'s "fact-finding" mission with open arms:
Three people have been chosen by the United Nations to judge Israel's actions in Jenin. Two are sons of Europe, and one of those is Cornelio Sommaruga. As former head of the International Committee of the Red Cross, Sommaruga spent 12 years ensuring that the only nation on earth to be refused admission to the International Red Cross is Israel. The problem, he said, was its symbol: "If we're going to have the Shield of David, why would we not have to accept the swastika?"
-- another excerpt from that Krauthammer essay I missed.
