Goldstone to CNN: 'Hamas has courts. Some people are sentenced to be executed'Richard Goldstone told Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday that his report has touched off a 'debate' in Israel (not really - almost all Israelis believe he's biased) and claims that while the Israelis 'target civilians,' the Americans never do.
Goldstone is not satisfied with the current Israeli investigations into Operation Cast Lead - he wants blood. He also insists that the mandate was broadened but that was never done legally.
But the biggest joke is that he takes Hamas' 'court system' seriously. "Some people are sentenced to be executed." Yeah, for 'collaborating' with Israel or belonging to Fatah.
Let's go to the videotape.
With respect to his last argument, the only 'double standard' is the one that holds Israel to a different standard than any other country in the world.
The fact that Goldstone equates Hamas' 'court system' to Israel's shows clearly what is wrong with the multi-culti world that doesn't recognize exceptionalism. There are light years of difference between the self-critical courts of a democracy and 'courts' run by a terror organization. Even Richard Goldstone ought to know that. His ignoring that basic difference speaks volumes about why his 'report' came out the way it did.
