It seems that the world in which we live in, a world of impunity for the favoured Israeli state, is set to continue.  Unless of course we the people decide enough is enough.

Samouni Family in Gaza with Ken O' Keefe

During Operation Cast Lead Israel committed massive war crimes for all the world to see.  Among these crimes the use of White Phosphorus in densely populated areas, use of Depleted Uranium, bombing civilian targets of all sorts without military necessity, destroying civilian infrastructure with no military justification and the infamous massacre of the Samouni family… among many other crimes.

In the aftermath of Cast Lead, Justice Richard Goldstone, a Zionist Jew, was commissioned by the United Nations to write a report on the alleged war crimes.  Although the report did not go nearly far enough in exposing the brutality of all the crimes committed, crimes committed by the fourth largest military in the world against a essentially defenceless and captive population, it did allege that Israel (and Hamas) was almost undoubtedly guilty of war crimes and possibly, crimes against humanity.

But on April 1st, 2011 Justice Goldstone had an apparent change of heart and effectively said that he was wrong.  With regard to the Samouni family he said, Israel simply made a mistake.  It seems that the world in which we live in, a world of impunity for the favoured Israeli state, is set to continue.  Unless of course we the people decide enough is enough.
