    Leftist Jews to Israel: Stop villifying Goldstone

    By Natasha Mozgovaya, Haaretz Correspondent


    A letter appealing for the support of the Goldstone report's findings was articulated by the leftist Jewish organization "Jews say no!" and signed by hundreds of Jews worldwide on Wednesday.

    "When it comes to Israel, hard-core censorship and intimidation by those claiming to speak in the name of the Jewish people have been the order of the day," the letter said regarding Israel's response to the Goldstone report findings.

    The letter also accused the worldwide Jewish community of unsuitably attacking Justice Goldstone and said "when those within a community try to "excommunicate" and dishonor truth-tellers, it is our obligation and responsibility to speak out vehemently on their behalf and on behalf of the truth they bring."

    It further elaborated that Judge Goldstone should be "applauded for his honesty" and for "following where the truth led him and releasing a report detailing human rights abuses and violations of international law by Israel, as well as by Hamas."

    Also, the letter called for Israel's government to be held accountable for "attempting to vilify a truth-teller and for suppressing the truth about Israeli government crimes against the Palestinian people."

    The letter also criticized the Obama administration's reaction to the report and called for "a fair and impartial investigation of the report's allegations by non-military institutions in Israel."

    Well known intellectuals like Tony Judt and Howard Zinn are among the signatories, as well as organizations such as ICAHD-USA, Jewish Voice for Peace, American Jews for a Just Peace, and the Alliance of Concerned Jewish Canadians.

    House Shames Itself on Goldstone Report

    by Matthew Rothschild


    Shame on the House of Representatives, and on the Democratic leadership of the House, for pushing through a resolution once again blindly taking the side of Israeli aggression.

    I’m referring to the vote on Tuesday, by a lopsided 344-to-36 margin, to condemn the Goldstone report on Gaza.

    That report, by South African jurist Richard Goldstone for the UN, showed that both Israel and Hamas had committed war crimes in the lead-up to and during Israel’s invasion of Gaza almost a year ago. (To read the executive summary, click here)

    It noted that Israel deliberately attacked civilian targets, and did not take sufficient action to minimize civilian loss of life. For instance, it found that Israel even refused to allow the evacuation of the injured by ambulance.

    The report also condemned Hamas for its rocket attacks into Israel, which the report said were designed to create terror.

    Is Judge Goldstone a Traitor?

    February 13, 2010 · 4 Comments


    1. Alan Dershowitz says that South African Judge and Zionist Jew Richard Goldstone “is a traitor using his Jewishness to malign Israel… He is an evil man, one who allowed himself to be used against the Jewish people, an absolute traitor.” Apparently if you are a Jew, your loyalty is to Israel above anything else – even the truth. The South African Jewish community apparently shares Dershowitz’s assessment.

    The once-brave judge who opened up apartheid’s can of worms and took on Yugoslav and Rwandan war criminals, did not do the brave thing this time – he did not defend Israel against the Human Rights Council onslaught. He did the opposite – he lent his standing, his Jewishness, to the attack on his people.

    “His people” clearly equals “Israel.” That’s the equation, the Zionist theory of relativity. Keep it in mind or ignore it at your peril.
