    It is truly remarkable to see that the limits of incredulity of our comrade friends is boundless. It the face of such obvious tripe, still there is the steadfast adherence to this idiotic selective standard that Israel is held to while the bulk of the gang of thugs at the United Nations can feign their own adherence to democratic principles. It is way past the time to call out these hypocrites in the most aggressive of ways and to use the most powerful of means within the ambit of a democratic process to pull the veil off these politically-correct posers. It's a joke, but an increasingly irritating one. Goldstone? Imagine commencing a war, hiding behind civilians and then getting to whine that civilians have been killed? Where are the U.N. and their cheerleaders on the travesties of Iran, Sudan, Turkey and the myriad of other holes in this planet in which enormous #s of civilians have been butchered? Political prisoners and genocide doesn't count in approved places, apparently.
