Alan Dershowitz Goldstone Report Operation Cast Lead


While the Tundra Tabloids has problems with Alan Dershowitz’s support for the many policies that ended up hurting Israel in the long run, the man must be given his due for his defense of the Jewish state, which has to some extent come at a personal price for the Harvard lawyer. The man is vilified by the Left because he sticks up for Israel, and to some degree on the Right for reasons just given. Whatever side you fall on, you’ll be hard pressed to find fault in his argumentations in the defense of Israel against Jew/Israel hating mobs. KGS

NOTE: The Tundra Tabloids takes great pride in learning that Front Page Mag uses a Tundra Tabloids’ photoshopped picture of Goldstone that heads the article.

The Goldstone Report is much more scurrilous than most of its detractors (and supporters) believe. According to the report, Israel used the more than 8,000 rocket attacks on its civilians merely as a pretext, an excuse, a cover for the real purpose of Operation Cast Lead, which was to target innocent Palestinian civilians—children, women, the elderly—for death. This criminal objective was explicitly decided upon by the highest levels of the Israeli government and military and constitutes a deliberate and willful war crime. The report found these serious charges “to be firmly based in fact” and had “no doubt” of their truth.
In contrast, the Mission decided that Hamas was not guilty of deliberately and willfully using the civilian population as human shields. It found “no evidence” that Hamas fighters “engaged in combat in civilian dress,” “no evidence” that “Palestinian combatants mingled with the civilian population with the intention of shielding themselves from attack,” and no support for the claim that mosques were used to store weapons.
The report is demonstrably wrong about both of these critical conclusions. The hard evidence conclusively proves that the exact opposite is true, namely that:
[1] Israel did not have a policy of targeting innocent civilians for death. Indeed the IDF went to unprecedented lengths to minimize civilian casualties; and
[2] That Hamas did have a deliberate policy of having its combatants dress in civilian clothing, fire their rockets from densely populated areas, use civilians as human shields, and store weapons in mosques.
What is even more telling than its erroneous conclusions, however, is its deliberately skewed methodology, particularly the manner in which it used and evaluated similar evidence very differently, depending on whether it favored the Hamas or Israeli side.
I have written a detailed analysis of the Goldstone Methodology, which is now available online. It is being sent to the Secretary General of the United Nations for inclusion in critiques of the Goldstone report received by the United Nations. This analysis documents the distortions, misuses of evidence and bias of the report and those who wrote it. It demonstrates that the evidence relied on by the report, as well as the publicly available evidence it deliberately chose to ignore, disproves its own conclusions.

  1. Richard Goldstone has an criminal past as an ICTY(The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia) chief prosecutor.
    Specially in the case of Djukic.

    Probably he learned his working methods and ethics in service of the apartheid regime of South Africa.

  2. Alan Dershowitz brilliance

    Dear KGS,

    Many thanks for the posting of the Alan Dershowitz document on the Goldstone Report. Generally I consider Alan Dershowitz writing as precision ammunition at its finest. In his presentation concerning the Goldstone Report he, however, produces an effect better characterized as the effect of a nuclear weapon. He simply thrashes the paper to microns and sends the Goldstone Report to compete with literary products such as the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and a like.

    The introduction of the Mission members is hilarious. The only member of the Mission that can be somehow excused from responsibility concerning the Report is the Pakistani Hina Jilani. Considering the inbred, genetic Moslem anti-Semitism, nothing else could be rightfully expected from her. The two European members of the mission obviously reflect more a Pavlovian type of anti-Semitic phenotype required from their UN host and the general lynch mood of their respective countries. What about Goldstone himself? He will obviously go down in history as one more of the Quislings of his people.

    Alan Dershowitz goes through the material meticulously and, so characteristic to him, zooms brilliantly in at the critical aspects of the Report. He does not leave the slightest leeway of doubt that the report is a gross falsification of the facts and in essence a premeditated Arab (UN) narrative attack on Israel. Somehow there was no call for a fact finding mission when Hamas launched 8000 rockets to Israel exclusively targeting civilian population and infrastructure. It is utterly absurd that the Israeli response to this rocketing is even an issue.

    Did the UN or the human rights organizations really want to avoid the Operation Cast Lead they should have done their utmost to stop the rocketing. Questioning and moralizing now the inevitable outcome is utterly hypocritical. Did they do anything? They did absolutely nothing leading one to think, with much more factual basis than used in the Goldstone Report, that the Palestinians were actually purposely used by them as cannon food just to enable an attack against Israel and its right to exist.

    Alan Dershowitz has once again showed that he is a beacon of light in the ever more pathetic western world guided by organizations like the UN and the so called human rights organizations that are progressively sliding into outright racism. And who are the victims? Surprise, surprise! Naturally it is the Jews. Do one misuse of the term anti-Semitism again? There is a catch 22 situation here. If you don’t call it anti-Semitism, it renders anti-Sermitism legitimate. If you do call it anti-Semitism, it will be loudly belittled in order to move the border gradually towards outright National Socialism.

    Deeply in depth to Alan Dershowitz (and you too, KGS)!


  3. Nazi Germany sent about as many(11000) V-1 Rockets to England during WWII as Hamas did sent to Israel.

    The Britons answered by carpet bombing away many large German cities.

    Where is the Report of the United Nations Fact Finding Mission?

  4. Thanks Kari, all good points. Goldstone isn't so squeaky clean himself. The world dares not apply the same standards to itself that it demands of Israel.

    Stefan, thanks a lot for that, I'm making a post about it. Cheers, KGS
