The Goldstone Report’s Cold Logic

By 10.23.09

Those who claim the Goldstone Report was written simply to blacken Israel's name are missing the point. That is and can be done almost daily by directly feeding the media half truths and propaganda to use in articles that reinforce the narrative of Palestinian suffering at the hands of the occupying Israelis.

Rather, the purpose for producing the Goldstone Report was to provide a "rationale" for domestic courts around the world that are sympathetic to militant Islam to arrest Israelis -- whether they be political leaders, military officials or ordinary soldiers -- and prosecute them for war crimes under so-called " universal jurisdiction" laws.
