The Goldstone Report: The UN Blood Libel

Goldstone Courts Global Fame and Glory

Richard Goldstone's efforts to broadcast his activities are totally unprecedented in the UN human rights system. He organized the first-ever webcasting of a UN human rights "inquiry" against a UN member state, and the repeat broadcasting of the unsubstantiated accusations of its self-proclaimed "victims."

Goldstone has been on the short-list to be UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, but he has never made it. Impressing anti-Israel UN member states, however, can guarantee longevity as a UN "expert" - with many remaining in such UN posts for decades. Goldstone's grandstanding is certain to impress this audience.

Goldstone decides to broadcast testimonies in Gaza City and Geneva
