I'm not a reactionary, I won't say:'well... yaaa - what about what America did in ____'. No point in that. The hypocrisy and injustice are self evident.
America calls for Hamas to investigate war crimes too? Seriously?! HAMAS is a terror group purposely committing war crimes. The Goldstone report is a 'seal of approval' of every possible blood libel.
This administration has gone the most despicable route. Jimmy Carter the II will drive us to the next holocaust on an express train. Perhaps not an express train: On a county fair roller coaster.
U.S. to Israel: Probe alleged Gaza war crimes to advance peace
The United States called on its close ally Israel on Tuesday to conduct credible investigations into allegations of war crimes committed by its forces in Gaza, saying it would help the Middle East peace process.
Michael Posner, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, said that Hamas leaders also had a responsibility to investigate crimes and to end what he called its targeting of civilians and use of Palestinian civilians as human shields in the strip.
The UN Human Rights Council was holding a one-day debate on a recent report by Richard Goldstone, a South African jurist and former U.N. war crimes prosecutor.
His panel found the Israel Defense Forces and Palestinian militants committed war crimes and possibly crimes against humanity during their December-January war. Israel did not cooperate with the UN inquiry and has rejected the report as biased.
"We encourage Israel to utilize appropriate domestic [judicial] review and meaningful accountability mechanisms to investigate and follow-up on credible allegations," Posner said in a speech to the Geneva forum.
"If undertaken properly and fairly, these reviews can serve as important confidence-building measures that will support the larger essential objective which is a shared quest for justice and lasting peace," he said.
The United States joined the Council, set up three years ago, for the first time earlier this year.
Posner reiterated Washington's view that the Council paid "grossly disproportionate attention" to Israel, but said that the U.S. delegation was ready to engage in balanced debate.
I'm not religious, the following is just a figure of speech: Pray for Israel to survive Obama, pray!
