    InBaars participated in The Goldstone report book infamous terrorist-led Gaza flotilla. The new council — its membership heavily weighted against Israel — had issued more condemnatory resolutions against Israel than against the rest of the world combined. Goldstone took his own public relations seriously, including the exaggerated role attributed to the ICTY in promoting peace in the Balkans, and his contributions in Rwanda. The report itself was widely rejected in Israel, even as more and more events cited in it led to criminal investigations and in some cases, to prosecution of soldiers and officers. We accepted out of a deep concern for the hundreds of civilians who needlessly died and those who suffered injury and dislocation of their lives.

    Then late in the story, when he was already past 70, came the debacle of the Goldstone Report, a The Goldstone report book episode in his life and in his career. Along with accusations that he had acted like a Nazi collaborator in excoriating the Jews of Israel, an Israeli press campaign began, based on evidence that in his native South Africa, Judge Goldstone, who had done his best to shield coloured and black citizens from the worst rigours of apartheid laws, had nonetheless supported death sentences against black defendants. The anger grew as Goldstone participated in media interviews and public events that displayed his lack of familiarity with many of the incidents discussed in the report. Sarah Leah Whitsona director of Middle East and North Africa Division of Human Rights Watch, commented that "this sort of resolution sends a terrible message to the international community about American willingness to believe in international justice for all. The author of this book provided free copies of the book to have their book reviewed by a professional reviewer.

    Only if we have the confidence that The Goldstone report book can defend ourselves can we take further risks for peace. In conclusion, may I say that the Mission hopes that the substance of this report will be used to strengthen initiatives for peace in the region. Denounced from all quarters, he largely disappeared from public view. Israeli President Shimon Peres said that the report "makes a mockery of history" and that "it does not distinguish between the aggressor and the defender. The report served as an important lesson for the Palestinians as well: it proved that they can apply considerable pressure on Israel by bypassing Washington and taking their case to the international community and to international organizations. But I feel a lot sorrier for the Palestinian civilians who suffered so cruelly from the shells, rockets and bullets of the Israelis.

Even though the report The Goldstone report book rejected by Israel, the United States and for a brief moment, even by the Palestinian Authority under Israeli-American pressureit proved powerful enough The Goldstone report book change regional politics. The Mission found no indications that the mosque was used to launch rockets, store munitions or shelter combatants.

Goldstone souvenirs in Gaza undhimmi. The Mission does not discount that the interviewees' reluctance may have stemmed from a fear of reprisals.

See below. Many people in Gaza deplore the firing of thousands of rockets at civilians in Southern Israel and the terror that it has caused to innocent children, women and men.

He also became politically active, befriending post-colonial anti-Israel ideologues such as Richard Falk and Ken Roth, and signing petitions opposing American military action in Iraq. Incidents selected for examination were cherry-picked for political effect.

South The Goldstone report book National Party government occasionally promoted "opposition" barristers to the Supreme Court Bench to demonstrate its claimed commitment to an independent judiciary [17] and to confer legitimacy on the system through the presence of judges who enjoyed a reputation for independence and integrity.

In both cases, the Palestinian and the Israeli, we have yet to fully grasp the lasting political effect of the Goldstone Report. They do not approve of the damage to the food and commercial infrastructure of Gaza that will take many years to repair.

His ruling in the case of S v Govender in that evictions of non-whites were not automatically required by the Act led to the virtual cessation of such evictions.

The Government of Israel wishes to restrict its investigations to secret inquiries by the Military investigating itself. The Mission also found that no other damage was done in the area at the time, making the attack an isolated incident.

The Mission recommends further that the Security Council should set up a body of independent experts to report to it on the progress of the Israeli investigations and prosecutions. He must have known that, once it had been presented to the HRC, he would have no control over how it would be interpreted or used.

In the two rounds of public hearings, 38 witnesses, victims and experts gave testimony. And many in Israel, Jews and Palestinians, deplore the actions by the Israel Defense Force that caused unjustifiable civilian deaths and injuries on a very large scale. The mandate handed to Goldstone by the UNHRC was deeply flawed and one-sided by his own admission: it read in part: ' This is very regrettable.
