The Goldstone Report Indicts an Entire Nation on False Charges

(Canadian Jewish News) Gerald Steinberg - A UN "fact-finding report" written under a mandate provided by the UN Human Rights Council, which is dominated by members of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (Libya, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Sudan, Egypt, etc.), indicts the entire Jewish nation on false charges of "war crimes," deliberate killing and disproportionate force. Most of the Goldstone report's evidence repeats the claims and publications of more than 50 so-called civil society organizations that claim to promote human rights, but, as a careful look at their activities demonstrates, most of their work is ideologically determined. By any logical definition of proportionality, after 8,000 rocket attacks, on which Goldstone and his colleagues remained silent, Israel had the moral right to flatten all of Gaza. The writer is a professor of political studies at Bar-Ilan University and heads NGO Monitor.
