The Goldstone Report

Edited by Adam Horowitz, Lizzy Ratner, and Philip Weiss
Nation Books, 2011

It’s not only 325 pages of the most serious, detailed, and moving accounts of Israel’s human rights violations while invading Gaza in December 2008 and January 2009; it’s also a set of essays that seriously evaluate the work of Justice Richard Goldstone, a Zionist and former member of the board of the Hebrew University, as he sought to evaluate the information and testimony he received, including the recommendations he then passed on to the UN, which had asked him to do the report (he had previously authored similar UN human rights reports on Rwanda and Bosnia). We already sent out Naomi Klein’s introductory article online (if you didn’t get it, sign up for our newsletter), but there’s much more here, including Moshe Halbertal’s fierce critique, “The Goldstone Illusion,” Rashid Khalidi’s important essay, “Palestinian Dispossession and the U.S. Public Sphere,” Letty Cottin Pogrebin’s “The Unholy Assault on Richard Goldstone,” and more. If you read it, you’ll know for sure why you should travel from afar to honor Goldstone when we give him the Tikkun Award at our Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Celebration March 14 at the University of California, Berkeley.
