A Cleverly Disguised Dersh Post

Bradley Burston's editorial in Ha'aretz today indicates Alan Dershowitz has retracted his use of the word "traitor" to describe Judge Goldstone:

What is most instructive in this context, is the fact that of all the epithets which Alan Dershowitz hurled at Goldstone in an interview to Israel's Army Radio, the one viewed as the worst of them all - so grave that he later retracted it - was the word moser, used to condemn one who betrays his people by, yes, informing. Divulging privileged information to the outside world."

You should really read the full editorial because it makes some excellent points about the Israeli mentality towards Cast Lead and similar conflicts.
