Justice, this is what everyone says is missing in the comeuppance of a man who chose, in the title of his memoirs, to be remembered as the Warrior.It is unfortunate that, unlike Amnesty International, Roth did not actively support the case against Ariel Sharon when the judicial battle was raging in Belgium. The greatest disappointment I recall from the trial is that Jewish Israelis, especially in the legal profession, did not openly support the victims, despite the fact that the largest demonstration in the history of Israel happened after Sabra and Shatila, and a young Jewish man, Emil Grunzweig, was killed in another demonstration against the then-defense minister.This is what I fear is the most troubling legacy of the Sharon case.Sharon withdrew from Gaza in 2005 and dismantled the massive Jewish settlements established there over decades.Chibli Mallat, a lawyer and professor of law, won for the victims of the 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacres a historic decision against Sharon in Belgium on Feb. 12, 2003 .
