Kawther Salam on US-Israeli-backed West Bank Palestinian leadership deferral
of the Goldstone UN Human Rights Report on the Gaza Massacre (3 October 2009): “Decision of collaborators
furthers Palestinian Genocide. Yesterday, 2 October 2009, the Palestinian
leadership, under heavy international oessure led by the United States, deferred
the draft proposal at the Human Rights Council endorsing all the
recommendations of the UN Fact Finding Mission (the Goldstone Report). This
deferral denies the Palestinian peoples’ right to an effective judicial remedy
and the equal protection of the law. It represents the triumph of politics over
human rights. It is an insult to all victims and a rejection of their rights. The
crimes documented in the report of the UN Fact Finding Mission represent the
most serious violations of international law; Justice Goldstone concluded that
there was evidence to indicate that crimes against humanity may have been
committed in the Gaza Strip. Violations of international law continue to this
day, inter alia, through the continuing Israeli-imposed illegal blockade of the
Gaza Strip. The findings of the Mission
confirmed earlier investigations conducted by independent Palestinian, Israeli
and international organizations.
