Goldstone's Bogus Israel Report?


Last week, a report came out in various media that seemed to go largely unnoticed by the mainstreams, at least as far as I could see. And it's a crying shame in my humble opinion.

Ever heard of a South African jurist named Richard Goldstone? According to this Jerusalem Post story, a Jewish group is going to file a class action lawsuit against Goldstone in the United States. This is all over an opinion piece Goldstone published in the Washington Post last week, in which he stated that he had erroneously accused Israel of internationally targeting innocent civilians in Gaza through a report he gave to the United Nations in 2009.

This report was used to blacken Israel around the world, and who knows how much more damage it has done since it was released. This deserves far more attention by the international press, and far more from the U.S. State Department.
