Through this new site formed by Robin Shepherd called The Commentator
(found via One Jerusalem
), I discovered what'll probably surprise no one:
It now appears all but certain that the controversial report alleging deliberate Israeli atrocities against Palestinian civilians in Operation Cast Lead in Gaza will not be withdrawn from the United Nations despite retractions of key allegations made in the report by its author, Justice Richard Goldstone.
One well-placed European diplomat told The Commentator on Saturday that all the signs this week from major European countries and from the United Nations itself suggested that hostility to the Jewish state remained so strong that even Goldstone’s remarkable comments, made in the Washington Post on April 1, could not stop the report’s momentum in its passage through UN bodies:
“Just look around you,” the diplomat said. “The messages from major European countries as well as what people are saying in the halls of the United Nations all indicate that this thing cannot be stopped.”
“The Europeans in particular are keen not to upset the Arab world at a time of turmoil and as several leading countries are involved in military actions in Libya.”
More to the point, if Arab/Islamic countries control the Human Rights Council, for example, then that's why this blood libel will tragically go through. I've said it before, I'll say it again: the damage was done, and Goldstone should be written in history in disgrace and shame for the demon he is.
