The United Nations is having a heck of a time coming to terms with Judge Goldstone recanting his notorious UNHRC-commissioned report. There are reports that it (the recanting, not the report) is causing all sorts of splits and rifts and things. In fact, if you listen carefully, you can hear the befuddled internationalists belting out this old-time rouser:
Why'd you recant, Judge Goldstone?
Why'd you recant?
We moan the whole day long.
We liked it fine, Judge Goldstone,
We liked it fine
When Jews had done 'em wrong.
Remember that Gaza fracas
That got us hot
And made us all just kvetch and rant?
We know who's to blame
And who we should shame.
So Goldstone why'd you go recant?
