The Rope Goldstone Threw to Israel

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2009

The Goldstone report, with all its flaws, is a serious document that will haunt Israel for years to come. Its assertion that the murder of civilians was part of Israel's intention is obviously inflammatory, and will inflame. The report's main recommendation, that Israel must appoint an independent body to investigate excesses in Gaza is necessary. Everyone who cares for Israel's moral health ought to insist, for Israel's sake, that there be a full-scale and unimpeachably independent commission of inquiry.
