Finally! Reconsidering the Anti-Israel UN Goldstone Report

In an earlier blog I asserted a prophetic promise God gives to Israel

Richard Goldstone

concerning her physical and spiritual restoration in “latter days”. Not only does He say that all who attack Israel will fall because  of her (Isaiah 54: 15)but in Isaiah 54: 17 he promises “you will refute every tongue that rises against you in accusation or judgment.”

In other words God Himself will vindicate Israel in the face of the many individuals and nations that rise up with hostile intent to maliciously and unfairly accuse her of various wrongs. The UN Goldstone Report was just one of many  unfair, disingenuous and slanderous accusations that have been authored by various UN entities to hurt, isolate and discredit Israel.

It is against this background that it is worth noting that now Richard Goldstone, the author of that horrific report is now backing away (although not completely) from his own report and I dare say with increasing amounts of egg on his face. In his own words:

We know a lot more today about what happened in the Gaza War of 2008-09 than we did when I chaired the fact-finding mission appointed by the UN Human Rights Council that produced what has come to be known as the Goldstone Report. If I had known then what I know now, the Goldstone Report would have been very different. (April, 2011, Washington Post)

He goes on to point out that “Israel has dedicated significant resources to investigate over 400 allegations of operational misconduct in Gaza while …Hamas has not conducted any

Current Rulers of Gaza

 investigations in to the launching of rockets and mortar attacks against Israel”.

I know you must be as shocked as I am that Hamas, a terrorist organization ruling Gaza, who has permitted the launching of over 5000 bombs into Israeli civilian populations, has not taken an aggressive posture in investigating who might be responsible for launching those bombs. Tsk, tsk!

It appears that many other politicians at least here in the US are beginning to rise up and ask that this report be discredited and shelved. Don’t hold your breath.

And also…don’t expect an apology from the UN anytime soon.

Accusers of Israel beware…the God of Israel keeps His promises! He will rise to Israel’s defense whether it is on the battlefield of war, the media or the courtroom.

  1. and what does he mean, “if I knew then what I know now?” None of the facts have changed. Does he mean that he now sees that he was being used by the UN cronies to further their anti-Israel smear campaign by having a Jewish judge lead the committee? Mr. Goldstone was just another pawn in the hands of the UN. But alas, as you say, he has been knocked of the board by the king of Kings.

    And God bless Israel that we refused to cooperate with Goldstone when it was clear that the whole report was a farce. Tough times require toughness.

  2. Alleluia…(though we don’t say alleluia during Lent)… praise the Lord God of the Universe. He is true to His Word. Holy Spirit come and descend upon all Your people and let Your Truth be known to all…We honor and love you, Oh, Messiah. Thanking you in advance for your victory.
