It seems that there IS an area on which nearly everyone in the world agrees….  if you believe the UN, anyway.

The “Goldstone report” by the UN on the recent Israel/Hamas conflict is out.

Predictably, it condemns Israel more or less unconditionally, while using relatively tepid, conditional language to describe Hamas’ role in the run-up to it, and during it.

Here are two takes on it.  From the Arab News Blog, and from Joel Mowbray at

Just a reminder:  Israel is always a bigger target for UN “human rights” activists than any other nation, including North Korea, China, the Sudan, etc.  There is more unanimity on the “evil Israel” at the UN than there is on any other issue.
