ONE OF SPAIN'S "crusading judges" gets smacked, legally speaking:
Spain’s National Court dropped an investigation into whether Israeli forces committed a war crime in the Gaza Strip by bombing an apartment building housing a Hamas leader.

Magistrate Fernando Andreu had been investigating the 2002 attack in Gaza City that killed Hamas commander Salah Shehadeh and 14 other people. Today’s ruling by a panel of judges to end the investigation without charging anyone can be appealed to the Supreme Court, according to a statement from the National Court. No reason for the decision was given in the statement.
No reason? How about "sanity"?
