    “The Goldstone report lied,” has become a Jewish war cry. It is sad to witness because the international community and the world’s judicial systems, despite world-wide scrutiny, have not acknowledged one single lie in the UNHRC report chaired by Goldstone. The vast majority of Jews who castigate Goldstone, have not read the report, and so, by calling Goldstone a liar have put themselves in a unique category of international citizens. And you are a typical Jew. You maintain the report ignored facts, evidence and testimony that did not suit Goldstone’s pre-conclusions. That means that you have evidence of such intellectual dishonesty, that you, yourself, have not presented to the UNHCR or the Israeli government. You have not read the report. You contend, however, that all the members of the UNHCR commission, the commission secretariat, and the over 100 staff members, all agreed with Goldstone’s pre-conclusions. Do you feel silly about now? If you had read the report, you would know that interviews were conducted with victims, witnesses and other persons having relevant information; sites were visited to specific locations in Gaza where incidents had occurred; analysis were conducted of video and photographic images, including satellite images. Reviews were conducted of medical reports about injuries to victims; forensic analysis were done of weapons and ammunition remnants collected at incident sites; invitations were initiated to provide information relating to the Mission’s investigation requirements; there were repeated calls for written submissions; public hearings were held in Gaza and in Geneva. The Mission conducted 188 individual interviews. It reviewed more than 300 reports, amounting to more than 10,000 pages, over 30 videos and 1,200 photographs.” So David, who’s the liar, the Goldstone report, or you and your brethren?
