Judge Richard Goldstone responds to criticism of his report on the Gaza Massacre


For those who don’t know, Richard Goldstone is a lifelong supporter of Israel and self-described Zionist. Last year, he released a report about the way in which Israel and HAMAS conducted themselves during the December 2008 – January 2009 Gaza Massacre (Operation Cast Lead). He determined that both sides committed war crimes and possible crimes against humanity.

It provided evidence to show that Israel aimed to “punish, humiliate and terrorize” the civilian population of Gaza. This ranges from shooting children with white flags at point blank range, to the systematic destruction of mosques. Israel and its supporters have done everything in their power to discredit the report, but have failed miserably. Until now, they are yet to provide any proof to disprove the report in any way.

The worst part for Israel is that their usual propaganda against its critics does not work on Goldstone. He cannot be called an anti-Semite, self-hating Jew, or holocaust denier. As the Israeli journalist, Gideon Levy brilliantly put it, Goldstone is “propaganda proof”.

Therefore, Goldstone and his report remain an undying headache for Israel.
