US Vows to Join Israel in Fight Against Goldstone
Bethlehem – Ma’an – The US pledged on Tuesday to help Israel combat the Goldstone report documents alleged war crimes committed during the attack on Gaza last winter.

This offer to “fight the Goldstone report” came during a meeting between US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice and Israeli President Shimon Peres in Jerusalem, according to a statement from Peres’ office.

“It is outrageous that a respected institution like the United Nations provides a platform to spread lies and stories about Israel,” Peres told Rice during their closed-door meeting, according to the statement.

“We will not tolerate our youth being labeled war criminals. We must do everything to stop the deceptions and wrongs produced by the Goldstone report,” he continued. “The United Nations provides a stage for [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmedinejad, who threatens to annihilate Israel, and lets him stand judge. This is nothing short of ridiculous.”

The statement says that, in response to the President’s remarks, “Rice promised that the United Sates will continue to stand by Israel as a loyal friend in the fight against the Goldstone report.”

Justice Richard Goldstone’s four-person team visited Gaza twice this year, and compiled a 575-page report based on hundreds of individual testimonies and thousands of documents. The report accuses both Israel and Palestinian armed groups of committing war crimes during Israel’s three-week assault against Gaza last December and January.

Last Friday the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva voted to endorse the report and refer the document to the UN bodies in New York.

  1. Why does the American government keep kissing Israel’s ass against the wishes of the American people! Why are the people of the jewish religion allowed to interfere in America’s political system and other religions are not? Jewish is a religion and that is all it is, yet this religion is allowed to lobby congress and control our media, financial instutions, and the whores we elect to congress and the white house! This statement by Israel just proves they do NOT want peace they want all the land that belongs to the Palestinians and are willing to murder everyone of them to get it!! Why does the western world ignore the war crimes and crimes against humanity that the people of the jewish commit? The jewish religion is one hateful and racist religion and should be banned from America as a terrorist religion!! Israel is the only country to attack America and murder our sailors and get away with it! Any politician who states he is jewish should have to take a loyalty test to determine whether they are loyal to America or Israel?? I wonder how much of all the money our financial industry lost is actually sitting in an Israeli bank?? Israel is NOT a friend of America they just use us for our money, power, and weapons and would sell us out if offered enough money!!


    • yeah man…..it doesnt make any sense…but nothing does here in Palestine


  2. Oh please give me a break, what a load of bull this blog entry is. Israel is a terrorist nation founded on stealing another’s land & killing woman and children. Albert Einstein knew it called those who founded Israel akin to the Nazis. He also warned of irreparable damage if America supported Israel.

    Unless you speak Farsi you relied on Memri to translate Ahmedinejad’s speech. Memri is owned by a former Israeli Defence Colonel and a Jewish neocon who is the spouse of a former advisor to Dick Cheney. The speech were Ahmedinejad supposedly said that Israel should be wiped of the planet was deliberately mistranslated by MEMRI.

    It is reprehensible to call war crimes outlined in the Goldstone report as “alleged”. Perhaps we should call the Holocaust alleged? (I don’t really think this, I am making a point).

    The UN is a collection of every nation on earth. Israel and America are errant nations that afoul of international law and don’t wish to submit to it. Luckily America’s empire is coming to an end, as jobs are being shipped to India and China. America’s dominance is coming to an end & with it, its irrational support and protection of Israel. The rest of the world knows that Israel is the world’s biggest threat.

    Enjoy your time because it is coming to an end.


    • Im kind of confused by your comment…just to clear it up I am pro-palestinian, I live in Ramallah and work for a Palestinian NGO….this article was on Ma’an News, an independent Palestinian news source. I think the point is to show how fucking crazy Israel is, its not taking Israel/US’s side though, for sure.

      WHAT????!!!!
      US Vows to Join Israel in Fight Against Goldstone
      Bethlehem – Ma’an – The US pledged on Tuesday to help Israel combat the Goldstone report documents alleged war crimes committed during the attack on Gaza last winter.

      This offer to “fight the Goldstone report” came during a meeting between US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice and Israeli President Shimon Peres in Jerusalem, according to a statement from Peres’ office.

      “It is outrageous that a respected institution like the United Nations provides a platform to spread lies and stories about Israel,” Peres told Rice during their
      closed-door meeting, according to the statement.

      I was in Ramallah during Cast Lead and in addition to writing news articles about what was happening, I also contributed many chapters to a book the NGO I work with is publishing about Gaza….starting from Israel’s “disengagement” until the end of the war and putting it into an international perspective as well–in terms of Livni’s electioneering where she advocated/planned the war to get votes in the election and the fact that Israel attacked after Obama had been elected but not inaugurated and Bush was on the way out of the office and didnt care anymore. I know journalists that were trying to get into Gaza during the war but werent allowed. They had to wait on a hill they called the “hill of shame”–taking pictures of the bombs and clouds of white phosperous…meanwhile, on the other section of the hill of shame, there were Israeli civilians –families, children, clowns….having a picnic and enjoying the “show”. It was a SICK, DISGUSTING, UNBELIEVABLE offensive and I saw pictures and read stories about it that I will never get out of my head. So I know that the Goldstone report is not spreading lies about Israel. It told the truth about Israel’s war crimes, and Israel knows that, thats why they are trying to cover it up.

      “We will not tolerate our youth being labeled war criminals. We must do everything to stop the deceptions and wrongs produced by the Goldstone report,” he continued. “The United Nations provides a stage for [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmedinejad, who threatens to annihilate Israel, and lets him stand judge. This is nothing short of ridiculous.”

      Personally, I love Ahmedinijad because he doesnt give a fuck about anyone. Whether he said he wanted to push ISrael into the sea or not is irrelevant because it will never happen.

      The statement says that, in response to the President’s remarks, “Rice promised that the United Sates will continue to stand by Israel as a loyal friend in the fight against the Goldstone report.”

      I hate the US for their collaboration with and support of Israel’s war crimes, and for using my tax dollars to give bombs to Israel. Its sick…and I wish more Americans would wake up and see what their tax dollars are doing around the world. If they were aware, then they could do something to change the situation or at least try. But right now, Americans just dont care what the government is doing because it “doesnt affect them”…..

  3. I am not surprised that the U.S.A. will stand with Israel and not accept the Goldstone report, since both countries have invaded and are occupying sovereign nations. It seems that Israel can do whenever, however and whatever it wants to do with the blessing of America. Any government that speaks out against either country are called terrorists. Everything was goingfairly good until America invaded and occupied the countries in the middle east. All for the oil. With Israel as it’s little pitbull. The main cause of Terrorism.
