2009 GOLDSTONE REPORT TO UN ADMITTEDLY WRONG

Chicago Tribune article reveals Goldstone 2009 report to United Nations about Gaza invasion was wrong. And what a furor it caused! It said: “Israeli soldiers deliberately targeted Palestinian civilians during its invasion of Gaza.” Not true. Now there is proof!

In an op-ed to the Washington Post, Richard Goldstone now explains there is proof that the opposite is true and that he “hoped that our inquiry into all aspects of the Gaza conflict would begin a new era of evenhandedness at the UN Human Rights Council, whose history of bias against Israel cannot be doubted.”

ISRAEL UNDER ATTACK

In the Associated Press article, Ian Deitch reports the heaviest mortar shelling in two years by Palestinian militants. Fifty mortars hit Israel. Beatings of the media covering a rally in Gaza City were also reported Saturday. They were, of course, condemned by the Foreign Press Association. Condemning the attack by Hamas security: “We demand that these tactics — which run counter to the rule of law and to the basic norms of legitimate government behavior — cease immediately,” the FPA said in a statement. “Journalists must be allowed to their work safely and unhindered,” the FPA said.
