SWC: Hamas’ Deadly Impunity Will Stop Only When UN-Led Diplomatic Cover Ends;
US Should Lead Campaign to Void Goldstone Report
April 8, 2011
The Simon Wiesenthal Center condemned the ongoing mortar and rocket barrage into Southern Israel which included the missile attack on a school bus that severely wounded the driver and a 13-year old passenger.
“No nation can accept a status quo where terrorists continuously target civilian communities and the world expects the victim to do nothing. Israel today finds itself in that position where as a result of the UNâ€™s Goldstone Report, it is demonized as guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity for attempting to defend her citizens from terrorist attacks, such as todays. This is an intolerable situation that must change,” said Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, dean and founder and associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
“Hamas’ deadly impunity will only stop when the diplomatic cover the world provides for it will stop. The Center calls on the United States to lead the charge in demanding that the UN void The Goldstone Report which has now been repudiated by its author, South African Judge Richard Goldstone.
To date, nearly 20,000 activists have joined the Simon Wiesenthal Centerâ€™s call to the UN to act on the debunked Goldstone Report, if you haven’t signed the petition, please sign now.
