Come, come, Mr. Cohen. You, me, and Harpoon Siddiqui know why the Goldstone report was embraced with such alacrity--because it affirmed the UN/UNHRC/OIC/Arab League/Hamas Big Lie that Israel is an agressive, blood-thirsty, morally indefensible entity that, due to crimes against Palestinians and for the sake of world "purity," must cease to be.
I wouldn't expect Cohen, confirmed lefty, to phrase it that way. Instead, he puts it like this:
(O)verall, Israel adheres to a morality we all recognize and admire — and that its enemies, Hamas in particular, do not. Those who gleefully embraced the Goldstone report have to ask themselves why. They may hate the answer.What bollocks! Does he really think Goldstone's recantation is going to make an iota of difference to the world's Zion-loathers? It won't. More likely it will spur them to redouble their efforts to use "human rights" ammo to do in the Jewish State.
