"Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin told Abbas that if he did not ask for a deferral of the vote on the critical report on last year's military operation, Israel would turn the West Bank into a "second Gaza." - Akiva Eldar via Haaretz The threat is clear. Israel is threatening to launch the same sort of punitive war waged against Gaza upon the West Bank unless the PA asks for the UN to not vote on the Goldstone Report. This threat PROVES that the Goldstone Report was true and Israel's response false. Only if Israel was a thuggish and malevolent as the Goldstone Report suggested would it threaten to do what happened to Gaza to the West Bank. Israel has a very real problem. It is that the men running the nation are just as evil as Israel's detractors suggest. The threat to savage the citizens of the West Bank as was done to Gaza can ONLY be valid if the destruction wrought upon Gaza was as ruthless and criminal as the Goldstone report states. The threat comes from a fool or a monster.
