it looks like the intrigues of an ever-continuing soap-story/thriller!
chris ,   wales   (01.27.11)
The whole Goldstone report was a farce and a demonstration of how the World's Powers have become Viciously hostile toward Israel and so one-sided. Some might question this by asserting the usual phrase,"THE WHOLE WORLD CAN'T BE WRONG" Well,Unfortunately when it comes to Israel/Jews,The Evidence is there in History.the ones who are on Israel's side are small in numbers and most Nations care more about Trade and rely too much on Oil in order to stand up for justice when it comes to this Tiny Percent of the World's Population-when compared with those with Oil,and those with Influence at the UN. Look what this Jordanian-Palestinian has to say: "Written by Mudar Zahran Jordanian-Palestinian Since the establishment of the State of Israel, the international media have been unhesitant in criticizing the Jewish state on almost everything. This has evolved into a media culture by itself, to the point that many internationally renowned newspapers would have a button labelled “Israel” or “Israeli-Arab conflict” on their Web sites including very little positive content about Israel. Media hostility toward Israel has been mainly focused on its military operations and, in more quiet times, on the living conditions of the Palestinians in Israel. Amazingly enough, the international media, and particularly the Western ones, pay very little attention to the conditions of the Palestinians living in Arab countries, despite the extreme oppression they have been enduring for decades in most Arab countries."More: I Will Post one more Important Post.on this subject.

1. Before 1990, Security Council passed 175 resolutions, 97 were directed against Israel (It is 55% of all resolutions). 2. Before 1990, UN General Assembly voted on 690 resolutions, 429 were directed against Israel (It is 62% of all resolutions). 3. The UN was silent when Jordanians destroyed 58 Synagogues in Jerusalem. 4. The UN was silent while the Jordanians systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives. 5. The UN was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-like policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall. 6. The UN was silent while for 18 months Israel was terrorized by indiscriminate suicide bombing campaign unleashed by PA leadership. 7. There are 60 Muslims countries in the UN. As well as many more are others Arab oil dependant states. 8. Israel is the ONLY MEMBER OF THE UN THAT IS NOT PERMITTED MEMBERSHIP ON THE SECURITY COUNCIL. 9. Israel is the only country excluded from the U.N.'s regional group system… Since Israel does not belong to any group, it is the only country of 190 member states that is not eligible to serve on the numerous U.N. commissions… 10. In recent years, the U.N. Commission on Human Rights has annually passed five resolutions condemning Israel. This year, they passed seven. By contrast, each of the following countries/regions has been the subject of only one resolution: Afghanistan, Burundi, Congo, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Myanmar, Russia/Chechnya, Sierra Leone, Southeast Europe and Sudan… 11. Nov. 29 is the United Nations Day of International Solidarity with the Palestinian People. No other people has a U.N. Day of Solidarity… 12. Israel is the only state to which a special investigator with "an open-ended mandate to inspect its human rights record" is assigned by the U.N. 13. It is the only state targeted by two special committees and special units of the U.N. Secretariat ostensibly devoted to the Palestinians but in reality dedicated to Israel-bashing worldwide, costing millions of dollars a year. 14. UNIFIL, the U.N. force stationed on the Israel-Lebanon border, hid a videotape of Israeli soldiers being abducted by Hezbollah in October 2000. After finally admitting to having the tape, the U.N. would only show an edited version (in which Hezbollah faces were hidden) to the Israeli government. 15. UNESCO, in Paris, began passing resolutions about protection of Jerusalem holy sites and access for Muslims in 1968. No resolutions about protection or Jewish access were passed from 1946 to 1967 when Jordan controlled Jerusalem and barred Jews from entering… It is Time to "Leave Egypt" by Steven Shamrak - August 31, 2002 1. Israel is on a front line of the war between Arab-Muslim expansionism and Western democracy. This war has already shifted to America and Europe. 2. According to UN own legal opinion: Judea, Samaria and Gaza does not belong to any country at the moment. Therefore, it is wrong to call them ‘Occupied territories’. They used to be a part of Jewish land. There was never Arab country in the Palestine. 3. So-called Palestinians are Arabs who moved to the territories during the last 130 year, after the Jews started re-vitalizing the land. 4. Arabs have no intention to live in peace with Jews. When Nasser, former president of Egypt, was asked: “Why do you continue to fight Israel after so many defeats?” His answer was: “Because. We need to win only one war!” Arabs aim is a total destruction of Jewish state! 5. Arabs respect charisma and strong leadership. It is the time for Israel and her government to show it and stop terror. 6. Enemies and so-called friends have never treated Jewish people as equal. They will never support Israel unconditionally, They do not respect facts where Israel is concern (remember so-called Jenin massacre). 7No room for more..if you want the rest,email me.
4. Wiki tells the real dirt on the real devils, thanks wiki.

5. PA Collaboration and Naivete
Alex   (01.27.11)
The PA only have themselves to blame for their dilemma, surely they must have been naive to think the Americans would ever consider Palestinian interests more important than those of Israel. But nobody should be complacent. When the truth finally dawns on the WB Palestinians as to the extent of PA collaboration with America and Israel, then they will express their fury - maybe with Intifada III.
6. What is the motive for all this
Mark from georgia ,   USA   (01.27.11)
First of all the Goldstone report has been completely discredited as a bias and false report. There were so many mistakes and inconsistencies that it would almost fill a book. So the idea that Israeli officers and diplomats would have faced criminal charges is just a fantasy of the Arabs. Like they fantasize the destruction of Israel. Unlikely.
7. Motive of leaks is obvious: It is not to destroy the PA
Nour ,   One-State   (01.27.11)
It is to destroy the Palestinian people, and sow an eternal seed of discord and division. The orchestrators of the scheme, including the corrupt gulf emir of Qatar, who now seems to think he owns the world, will be thoroughly disappointed.
8. with time I more and more convienced that
ghostq   (01.27.11)
palisjust want money for their bad behavior, if not they go for violant riots, so after all maybe it is not political cause they change their minds every day at least couple of times, they actually want money and more money, if they sell their own idiology than maybe this all pali thing is just ransome and nothing more.
9. These leaks are coming from Al Jazeera and not Wiki-Leaks

tiki ,   belgium   (01.27.11)
Is 100% right. One thing I don't understand...why does Israel keep doing it to itself and stays in the UN, when NOTHING positif ever comes out. They don't 'belong to any group, get 'bashed & condemned all the time, can't get 'promotion=influence. Why stay?
11. #10; tiki, you ask an important question
Mark from Georgia ,   USA   (01.27.11)
The answer is simple: you keep your friends close, but your enemies, closer. That way, you know their plans. It's that simple.
12. Why
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (01.27.11)
The Fatah wasn't against the Goldstone report because it was false or condemned Israel. It was because the Goldstone report turned "Cast Lead" into a Hamas victory and strengthened their rule. It removed any chance that Fatah could take over Gaza and allowed Hamas to get enough money to continue their activity in Judea and Samaria. The fact is that Goldstone was a paid collaborator with the Hamas regime that openly calls for genocide of the Jews. He will be remembered as one of the most effective Hamas fighters. Israel should try Goldstone in abstentia and demand his extradition.
