The US House of Representatives has passed a resolution that calls a UN-backed Gaza War crimes report “irredeemably biased.”
Not to mention that Goldstone himself admitted that none of the charges in the Goldstone Report would hold up in a court of law.
Largely a symbolic gesture, the non-binding vote urges the Obama administration to oppose any endorsement of Justice Richard Goldstone’s findings. (Don’t hold your breath) Brian Baird, a Democratic congressman, told Al Jazeera that the congressional resolution does not correctly represent the Goldstone report, but Steve Rothman, a Democratic congressman from New Jersey, has said that the report does not give enough attention to violations committed by Palestinians.
