For over 8 years, rockets were fired incessantly at Israeli civilians and the UN would not say a word. Now Mr. Goldstone has described these acts as "war crimes" that are deserving of punishment, but only from the time frame he was assigned to assess.According to Mr. Goldstone,unprovoked war crimes were being committed for 8 years but these do not matter since they were prior to his assignment. In essence, he has unwittingly proven the inutility, hypocrisy and lack of credibility of the very organization he is supposed to represent. Whether the man himself is credible or not is not the issue.He may be naive; he may be self-serving but again that is not the issue. The HRC is flawed, tainted and misguided and confirming this is the only thing his work has accomplished.
