Israel has called the Goldstone Commission Report "nauseating" on Tuesday, accusing it of creating an unjust "equivalence of a democratic state with a terror organization" and lacking the context of a decade of terrorist attacks by Hamas - 'We Don't Need Lessons In Morality From Syria, Somalia'
Foreign Ministry spokesman Yossi Levy is quoted as follows:
Israel has examined itself in the light of day in innumerable investigations and a robust system of independent courts. We have nothing to be ashamed of, and don't need lessons in morality from a committee established by Syria, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia and Somalia.
Israel is "nauseated and furious about a report that did not surprise us in its imbalance, but did surprise us in the lack of any real pretense to balance," he said, calling it "one of the most disgraceful documents in the long collection of shameful documents put out by the United Nations."
The immediate message of this report is: Terror pays. It says that terrorists who attack Jews, unlike terrorists who attack Americans, Spaniards, or other Arabs, will earn the protection of the UN.
The tragedy for what is left of the free world and for the Jewish people in particular is that one of the major enablers of this disgrace is a Jew himelf - Sir Richard "Uncle Tom" Goldstone whose name will live in infamy as the man who allowed himself to be used by the terrorists to destroy any semblance of international law when it comes to dealing with murderous terrorists.
