Goldstone: ‘Doh!’ PA: ‘Goldstone? Goldstone who?’

Goldstone-at-UNHRC-WEB The big Israel-related news item I’m reading today is South African judge Richard Goldstone’s retraction of the falsehoods he leveled at Israel back in September of 2009. I consider it fortunate that this news is circulating rapidly and widely. The Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued a media statement which says it most succinctly:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today (Saturday), 2 April 2011, has called upon the UN to immediately cancel the Goldstone Report

"Everything we said has proven to be true: Israel did not intentionally harm civilians, its institutions and investigative bodies are worthy, while Hamas intentionally fired upon innocent civilians and did not examine anything. The fact that Goldstone backtracked must lead to the shelving of this report once and for all."

Further commentary (and better than I can offer) on the subject can be read in The Atlantic, JINSA, IsraeliGirl, Honest Reporting, and many other places.

So what do Judge Goldstone’s partners-in-crime have to say? All of a sudden, to the PA he’s not the bosom buddy he was up until a minute ago, the UN does not appear likely to acknowledge the change at all, and a respected “main stream” publication like The New York Times doesn’t even seem to be aware of it. Or more like it, they pretend not to be aware of it. Not a real honest bunch, this.

Speaking of my correspondent IsrealiGirl,  a few days ago she sent me another fascinating expert interview. This one was with award winning scholar and author Dr. Esther Webman, who makes the point that Arab anti-Semitism is not a basic part of the Arab mindset (or at least did not start out that way), but is something that was carefully crafted for political advantage just a few generations ago. Now that’s interesting, isn’t it?

And speaking of speaking of IsrealiGirl, here is the latest compilation she’s made of Hate Links to Report:

Palestinian Hate and incitement leads to terror – report hate links now

Israel is under a terror attack. Grad rockets are falling in Beer Sheva and Ashdod in the south. Terror have also returned to Jerusalem today when a bomb went off near the central bus station. A woman was killed and dozens are injured. Just 10 days ago a family was massacred in Itamar – parents and 3 children were butchered while they slept.

Terror starts with incitement. Hate is used to legitimize the terror act. The Palestinians’ culture of praising terrorists produces terrorism. Social media sites are the perfect platform to spread hate and incitement.

If you are as upset by these events as I am I urge you to take action now – report these links for spreading hate and leading to terror against civilians.

  • Facebook - Make sure you are logged into your Facebook account. Click on any link and then on report page or group and choose the reason (Contains hate speech or attacks an individual)
    • Third Palestinian Intifada – this relative new group has almost 250,000 members. It calls for a renewed "resistance" fight against Israel, much like what’s been going on in the last few days. 
    • Israel Terrorist – calls Israel, US and Britain terrorist states and glorifies Hamas and Hezbollah
    • Stop Nazi Israel – comparing Israel to the Nazis is just a cover for the bluntest antisemitism
    • Stop Israel – sends all Jews to burn in hell..
  • Twitter – Login into your twitter account and click on any of these links. click on the options button located on the upper right hand side Twitter button. Choose the 3rd option which would report that user to Twitter.
    • Amer Al-Bayya – spreads the tales of Hitler and the Zionists..
    • Ismael - claims Zionisn is ethnic cleansing of Palestinians

Thank you for taking the time to report these links. All of us here in Giyus.org pray that this circle of violence will be stopped. We each must do what we can to that end.

To act on more issues and easily support Israel please sign up to our email updates – make a difference to Israel.

I wrote earlier of the need to get off the defensive. It’s worthy of note that since the above list was posted, the Third Intifada Facebook account has been taken down due to pressure from people like you and me. This may be a start.

TTYL.
