Goldstone is coming back!

Yet again, we will have another Goldstone....anybody care to guess the conclusions of this investigation???
The United Nations Human Rights Council passed Wednesday a resolution condemning Israel’s interception of a Gaza-bound flotilla and calling for a Goldstone-like inquiry into the deadly military operation.

During a second bruising day of debate in Geneva, the 47-member body passed the resolution with a majority vote of 32. The United States voted against the Palestinian-backed document and several European countries abstained.

The resolution accuses Israel of violating international law and calls for the immediate lifting of Israel’s blockade on Gaza. It also calls for an independent fact-finding inquiry, similar to one mandated by the Human Rights Council, which resulted in the Goldstone report.

Prior to the vote, nongovernmental organizations addressed the Council. Citing Israel’s offer to transfer the flotilla’s cargo to Gaza, Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watche, said the flotilla activists and organizers “wanted to create a political provocation; they were looking for a physical confrontation.” He also noted the use of metal bars, knives and guns by activists aboard the ship. “Is this a humanitarian state of mind?” he asked.

Hmman Rights violations once again is my bet to which Israel will bleat about it as usual and shout anti-semite at everyone who disagrees with it. Same as everytime.

An incredibly silly statement with no backup. Israel does NOT shout anti-semite at everyone who disagrees with it.
