GENEVA, October 16, 2009 -- Today's emergency UN Human Rights Council debate on the Goldstone Report predictably saw a line-up of the world's worst abusers condemn democratic Israel for human rights violations. In a heated lynch mob atmosphere, Kuwait slammed Israel for intentional killing, intentional destruction of civilian objects, intentional scorched-earth policy, saying Israel embodied the Agatha Christie novel, 'Escaped with Murder'. Pakistan said the horrors of Israeli occupation continue to haunt the international communitys conscience. The Arab League said, We must condemn Israel and force Israel to accept international legitimacy." Ahmadinejads Iran said the atrocities committed against Palestinians during the aggressions on Gaza should be taken seriously and followed up by the international community to put an end to absolute impunity and defiance of the law.
What the world's assembled representatives did not expect, however, was the speech that followed (see text below), organized by UN Watch. We invited as our speaker a man who repeatedly put his life on the line to defend the democratic world from the murderous Saddam Hussein, Al Qaeda, and the Taleban. The moment he began his first sentence, the room fell silent. Judge Goldstone, author of the distorted report that prompted today's one-sided condemnation of Israel but not Hamas, had refused to hear Col. Kemp's testimony during his "fact-finding" hearings. But UN Watch made sure today that this hero's voice would be heard -- at the U.N., and around the world
Since everybody is constantly accusing Israel of genocide and scorched earth tatics, why don’t they just go ahead and do those things and be done with the problem?
Funny. Kuwait and Pakistan slamming Israel?
What’s next? Sudan slams Tel Aviv?. Saudis slam Israeli treatment of women?

"Joshua, before he entered the Land of Israel, sent three letters to its inhabitants. The first one said that those that wish to flee should flee. The second one said that those that wish to make peace should make peace. The third letter said that those who want a war should prepare to fight a war." - Maimonides, Kingship 6:5
"When in your war against a city, you have to besiege it a long time in order to capture it, you must not destroy its trees, wielding the ax against them. You may eat of them, but you must not cut them down. Are trees of the field human to withdraw before you into a besieged city?" - Deuteronomy 20:19.
Jews answer to a Higher Authority than the criminals and thugs of the United Nations, in both hot dogs and in warfare.
