Richard Goldstone has finally admitted that he was gravely wrong in suggesting that Israel might have committed war crimes in his infamous Goldstone Report - Reconsidering the Goldstone Report on Israel and war crimes.

He blames Israel in part for not co-operating with his commission but as we know the terms of reference given to the commission were slanted from the start.

"The final report by the U.N. committee of independent experts — chaired by former New York judge Mary McGowan Davis — that followed up on the recommendations of the Goldstone Report has found that 'Israel has dedicated significant resources to investigate over 400 allegations of operational misconduct in Gaza' while 'the de facto authorities (i.e., Hamas) have not conducted any investigations into the launching of rocket and mortar attacks against Israel.'"

Even as news of Goldstone's retractions was emerging, anti-Israel propagandists were bleating that Goldstone proved the Jewish State's inhumanity while turning an eye to Hamas war crimes.

The conclusions of McGowan Davis and of Goldstone are so damning of Hamas that they must see the light of day in much of this enlightened world's media which has to start accepting that there is no end to the blood libels of the anti-Israel side and that the BDS movement, Israel:Apartheid and the coming Nakba accusations are nothing short of vicious and racist blood libels.

Goldstone at least has the guts to admit he was wrong.

Where is McGeough?

He was everywhere with the flotilla story but disappeared when that ship full of weapons heading for Gaza was found.

What a tosser!
