ISRAELI INFORMATION MINISTER SLAMS ALL REPORTS ON GAZA WAR AS ANTI-SEMITIC

Just days before Israel is expected to release its own report on the January 2009 invasion of the Gaza Strip, Israeli Information Minister Yuli Edelstein declared that the UN report on the war, and every other report since the war ended, “are simply a type of anti-Semitism.” The UN’s report, also known as the Goldstone Report, successfully moved through the UN Human Rights Council in October. It faulted both Israel’s government and the Hamas government in the Gaza Strip for the massive civilian toll in the war.

Israel warned that any report which didn’t put the blame 100 percent on Hamas was inherently biased and declared that it showed the hypocrisy of the entire planet and a global bias against Israel. The US House of Representatives [Or as I like to refer to it, Knesset West] also condemned the report as “unfair” and called for the president to block its consideration.

Chutzpah, Minister Edelstein. Chutzpah.
