It's a complicated story and one difficult for most Americans to understand. On her website Real American Defend Israel a very angry Bee Sting managed to do what I couldn't figure out how to do. She put it this way
THE GOLDSTONE REPORT TO THE UNITED NATIONS WAS THE "SHOT HEARD ROUND THE WORLD"! I REMEMBER WELL HOW THE LIBERAL MEDIA TREATED THE STATE OF ISRAEL, QUESTIONING ITS RIGHT TO DEFEND ITSELF FROM TERRORISTS AND TERRORISM; THE ON-GOING BATTLES THROUGHOUT MANY A NIGHT BETWEEN THOSE WHO STOOD BY ISRAEL AGAINST ANTI-SEMITISM AND ANTI-ISRAEL BLOGGERS ON AMERICA'S INTERNATIONAL NEWSPAPERS. AT THE TIME, IT APPEARED ISRAEL WOULD LOSE THE BATTLE FOR JUSTICE, AS THOSE WHO SUPPORTED THE STATE OF ISRAEL WERE OUTNUMBERED TEN TO ONE. FACTS MADE NO DIFFERENCE, FOR THE FLAMES WERE SET, SPEECHES HEARD, AND PROPAGANDA OF ISLAMIC IDEOLOGY AND HAMAS WERE ACCEPTED AS "TRUTH" - AFTER ALL, WASN'T GOLDSTONE A JEW? SURELY A JEW WOULD NOT BETRAY ISRAEL UNLESS THE ACCUSATIONS MADE WERE ABSOLUTELY TRUE.Read the rest of Bee Stings comments and the entire story Judge Goldstone - too little and much too late
AND THE OUTCOME OF THIS REPORT WAS THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN USA AID TO GAZA/HAMAS AND THE PALESTINIANS. OH, THE UNITED STATES VETOED THE REPORT, BUT AT WHAT PRICE? THE PRICE WA S A BETRAYAL FROM HER ONCE CLOSES ALLY, THE UNITED STATES; BOYCOTTS; OPEN CONDEMNATION FROM OUR STATE DEPARTMENT AND THE ENTIRE ADMINISTRATION; WEAK ARGUMENTS THAT WHILE HAMAS IS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION, ISRAEL IS NO BETTER THAN THOSE WHO FIGHT AGAINST HER
We know a lot more today about what happened in the Gaza war of 2008-09 than we did when I chaired the fact-finding mission appointed by the U.N. Human Rights Council that produced what has come to be known as the Goldstone Report. If I had known then what I know now, the Goldstone Report would have been a different document...... Richard Goldstone
As a result of Richard Goldstone's not knowing, Hamas was given aid by the Obama Administration, the aid was used to buy missiles, the missiles were used to attack Israel and kill civilians.... Might just be me, but I think our President might need to do a little more investigation of his own before rushing to do everything the UN suggests..
