Goldstone Commission Report

I apologize to my readers for not posting (or even commenting) for a long time. On the other hand, I’ve been busy preparing for the issue of the Goldstone Report, which surpasses even the abysmal expectations its early history had aroused, in its arbitrary disregard for the truth, its cut and paste of the media and NGO world, its brutal disregard for the atrocious behavior of Hamas, its shoddy use of evidence and stunning credulity for Palestinian witnesses… all told, it’s a discouraging moral inversion that can only aid and abet those who wish to destroy the state of Israel, and the forces of terror in this world. Whether the authors know it or not, by applying an impossible standard to Israel which no other country can come near to meeting, they are endangering democracies.

(No, Richard, tell us what you really think.)

I am about to open a website, a part of the Second Draft initiative, to examine the Goldstone Report. I welcome all my readers to contribute any and all links to articles about the report — including favorable ones — as well as their own thoughts on the subject. The site will encourage submissions, and I’d be happy to include work from this blog’s extremely sharp and well-informed readership.

In the meantime, I hope to start posting material here again soon.

    Your Daily Goldstones…

    It’ll be awhile before this passes. Here is some more substantive reading material by the people pushing back: In the Wall Street Journal, NGO Monitor’s Gerald Steinberg writes: U.N. Smears Israeli Self-Defense As ‘War Crimes’ – A one-sided report …
