The wonderful humane ally, Zion Central aka israel, of wonderful USA threatening more genocide. Well done, USA. Well done, israel. The world expects nothing less of war criminals like you. First murder innocents – men, women, children – in a genocidal surprise attack on Gaza. When some atrocities make it to the outside world despite efforts of a media blackout, then silence all voices by any means possible. The whole world excluding USA recognized that israel was guilty of the worst war crimes in modern history and when the Goldstone report confirmed these acts of terror, what to do? Why of course! Threaten the palestinians to stop raising their voice or suffer another holocaust. Well done Nazi israel. Well done murderers of humanity.
The request by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to the United Nations Human Rights Council last year to postpone the vote on the Goldstone report followed a particularly tense meeting with the head of the Shin Bet security service, Haaretz has learned. At the October meeting in Ramallah, 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.”
A PA official close to Abbas told Haaretz that Diskin came to the Muqata compound in Ramallah in October with a foreign diplomatic delegation, and that a senior Israel Defense Forces officer made similar threats to other PA leaders at around the same time. The Shin Bet said in response that it does not comment on Diskin’s schedule or meetings.
Abbas told a Palestinian commission of inquiry investigating the vote’s deferral that he accepted responsibility for the decision, and denied that his choice was a result of outside pressure.
Thirty-three of the UN council’s 47 members supported the PA’s initial endorsement of the Goldstone report. The matter was slated to be transferred from the UN General Assembly to the Security Council, when to the surprise of diplomats on all sides the PA delegation agreed at the last moment to defer the vote until March 2010.
The Goldstone commission recommended that Israel be given until March to complete an independent inquiry into its conduct during the offensive and to try any figures suspected of war crimes. Failure by either Israel or Hamas to conduct an open inquiry into their conduct would result in the case being referred to the International Criminal Court.
The article concludes with a joke,
“The United States is now seeking to persuade Israel to conduct such an investigation, and to release its findings on a number of incidents in which civilians were killed during the fighting.”
