1. interesting article
it points out how Israel escapes international justice by simply refusing to sign on to international treaties as most civilized Western nations do

as to Goldstone's denial of apartheid he starts out with the usual tired trope of how there is no apartheid in Israel but then goes on to include the OPT in which he points out such things as Blacks being left to die at roadsides because they were Black in Apartheid South Africa no that does not happen in Israel or the OPT where people have died at checkpoints because they were Palestinian but obviously that doesn't count

all in all I think Justice Goldstone does himself no favors with this stuf he will still be condemned for his work with the UNHRC and has lost the respect of many liberals on the other side
