NGO-Monitor: Goldstone Report Based on Politicized Pro-Palestinian NGO's

goldstone.jpg

NGO-Monitor reports that much of the 575-page Goldstone report attacking Israel is cut and pasted from anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian sources.

The critique finds not only that the Goldstone report is almost entirely based on false and unsubstantiated NGO statements and submissions, but that even distortions and misrepresentations of international law are copied and pasted. Moreover, the report ignores Hamas use of "human shields."

The watchdog organization points out that

Goldstone’s press conference in New York and the report’s recommendations constitute another step in the Durban Strategy, crystallized at the 2001 NGO Forum, using the language of human rights and international law as weapons in the political war to isolate and demonize Israel, and restrict legitimate responses to terror.
