    South African Jews on Sunday welcomed Richard Goldstone’s retraction of the accusation by a committee he chaired that Israel intentionally targeted civilians during the war with Hamas in 2009. erv. Michael Bagraim, the president of the South African Jewish Board of Deputies, said he felt “relieved” by the article published by Goldstone in the Washington Post on Friday. Goldstone has relooked at the situation and decided to backtrack,” Bagraim said in an interview over the phone. “Our community has felt very strongly that the probe was unfair to Israel and it’s almost like we’re ‘saying we told you.’ Its findings were possibly influenced by Israel’s decision not to get involved in the investigation, but he is a highly qualified lawyer and one would have expected him to go into the facts.” Bagraim added that Goldstone’s declaration could help rescind the committee’s conclusions which put Israeli officials traveling aboard at risk of being arrested on grounds of war crimes. Exactly …Imagine any other country’s personnel being arrested for prosecuting a war…i.e USA,France, Britain .,. as they are at present bombing in Libya..Yeah arrest the pilots and missile throwers with the top echelons (leaders) too.. Israel must not leave it to the UN who’s anti Israel stance will never acknowledge the truth thus sticking to their own agenda
