Goldstone resolution: passed, of course

As expected, the UNHRC has approved the Goldstone report. The move isn’t particularly troubling because the UNSC will block it on its way to the International Criminal Court. The only thing to watch in this regard is whether Obama will blackmail the Israeli government to obtain peace concessions in exchange for blocking the report in the UNSC.

The UNHRC resolution went further than Goldstone himself, and did not mention Hamas and possibly PLO war crimes as the report does.

Russia and China voted to support the resolution, as did other paragons of human rights, including Saudi Arabia and Zambia. India also supported the resolution despite its own problems with Muslims. Britain and France refrained from voting after Netanyahu’s government refused to give them assurances that it would investigate the Goldstone report on its own. Burkina Faso abstained after receiving aid from Israel.

Well think of the bright side:

When ever I want to convince my nieces and nephews that a Jewish education/ history / is vital to their future, I can now point to Judge Goldstone as an example of ignorance!

UNHRC resolution to pass Goldstone report should come as no surprise at all. Since Goldstone promotes the idea of Israeli occupation of Palestine and other things like this, UN will be absolutely happy to support him.UNHRC resolution to pass Goldstone report has been planned.
