to manufacture these bogus claims against Israel
The Goldstone report is a sham, being nothing more than a collection of “wild eyed claims” by Hamas leaders and members against the Israeli armed forces. The report should be “deep sixed”, but in the upside down world of the UN, it’s given a high profile that’s attached with high expectations of dragging Israel into the dock to be judged by its grotesque UNHRC organization. Kudos to the Brits for seeing through the nonsense. KGS
