Richard Goldstone:
And after all that hard work in collaborating with Hamas’
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

UPDATE: It wasn’t a full rejection, the UK flounders in the end and declined to vote.

“The resolution passed 25-6, with eleven countries abstaining. Five states, including France and the UK, declined to vote.

The six states that voted against the resolution were the United States, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Slovakia and the Ukraine. Eleven states, including Belgium, Bosnia, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Gabon, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Korea, Slovenia and Uruguay abstained.

The following 25 states voted in favor of the resolution: Argentina, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, China, Cuba, Djbouti, Egypt, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Mauritius, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, South Africa and Zambia.”

TINSC: “The United Kingdom became the first Western country with voting rights on the UN Human Rights Council to clearly state that it would not endorse the Goldstone Report or the draft resolution based on that report, which had been placed before the council’s two-day special session that opened Thursday in Geneva.”
J’LEM POST: “Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said in Jerusalem Thursday night that he hoped all the “responsible countries” would vote against endorsing the Goldstone Commission Report “that encourages terrorism and harms peace.”
The UK had been the only Western power with voting rights on the council to state Thursday that it would not endorse the Goldstone Report or the draft resolution based upon it, but that still left open the possibility of an abstention.
“We cannot fully endorse the report and cannot vote for the resolution as tabled,” UK Ambassador to the UN Peter Gooderham told the council. He added that it did not consider it necessary to hold a special session on the report, which had been due to come before the council in March.”
