US Congress rejects Goldstone Report, wants Obama to do the same

Headline News. Sunday, October 25, 2009 Israel Today Staff

US congressional leaders at the weekend said they will vote on a bipartisan bill officially rejecting the findings of the Goldstone Report into the recent Gaza war, and calling on President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to do the same.

Until now, Obama has made clear that he is uncomfortable with the Goldstone Report, but has refrained from making any decisive statements on the matter.

But Congress wants him to go further by negating the report and threatening to us the US's veto power should the report, which accuses Israel of war crimes, be brought before the UN Security Council.

The congressional bill insists that the Goldstone Report is one-sided because it accuses Israel of various crimes, but glosses over the eight years of Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel that preceded the war. It also notes that many of the crimes Israel is accused of by Goldstone were actually the result of Hamas' illegal use of human shields. To read the full article go to:
