Zowel Israel als Hamas pleegden oorlogsmisdaden in de Gaza-oorlog – maar wie daarbij volgens Goldstone cs de hoofdschuldige is, blijkt duidelijk uit het Rapport en dit vraaggesprek met vertegenwoordigers van de Amerikaans-joodse organisatie Tikkun.
The Goldstone Report: Killing the Messenger
..This latest assault against the human rights community by the Obama administration and congressional Democrats is not an example of their being too "pro-Israel." Indeed, such war crimes and other gross and systematic human rights abuses by the Israeli government endanger Israel’s security, and have led to the rise of extremist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah in the first place. Unfortunately, the Democratic leadership in Washington has joined the Republicans in a campaign, in effect, to kill the messenger: attack the United Nations, Amnesty International, or anyone else — be they journalist, scholar, activist, or even one of the world’s most respected jurists — who dares put forward credible evidence of human rights abuses by the United States or its allies.
"A culture of impunity in the region has existed for too long," Goldstone told the UNHRC when presenting his report. "The lack of accountability for war crimes and possible war crimes against humanity has reached a crisis point." The Obama administration and the Democratic leadership in Congress are part of this problem, not part of its solution.
