9781568586410: The Goldstone Report: The Legacy of the Landmark Investigation of the Gaza Conflict

The Goldstone Report is one of the most controversial UN reports ever published. It alleges that both Israel and Hamas committed atrocities during Israel's 2009 incursion into Gaza, with Israel aiming to "punish, humiliate and terrorise a civilian population." This characterization incited an uproar in Israel and abroad. Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding the findings supplanted any real understanding of their implications. Edited by three progressive American Jews, The Goldstone Report contains analysis; commentary by Desmond Tutu, Naomi Klein, and Rashid Khalidi, among others; and a context for debate.

About the Author:

Adam Horowitz is coeditor of Mondoweiss, a popular news site covering American foreign policy in the Middle East. He lives in New York. Lizzy Ratner, a former reporter for the New York Observer, writes for the New York Times and the Nation. Philip Weiss is the co-editor of Mondoweiss. He has written for the New York Observer, the New York Times Magazine, Esquire, and Harper's.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. American journalists Horowitz, Lizzy Ratner, and Philip Weiss provide a comprehensive picture of the 2009 Gaza conflict in this abridged version of the UN Fact-Finding Mission's report on the Gaza Conflict commonly known as "the Goldstone Report." Much more than a simple paring down of the controversial original document, which recounts human rights abuses committed by both Israel and Hamas, this edition is enhanced by oral testimonies and essays from experts following the report's publication. The evocative oral testimonies describing limbs strewn about a bombed mosque and young girls shot in front of their father inject a harrowing human element to counterbalance the report's dispassionate tone. The additional essays, including Tutu's eloquent foreword, offer an array of thought-provoking perspectives on the validity of the report, the vehement debates it has generated, and its effects on judge Goldstone himself, who became the victim of "Jewish excommunication" for what some perceived as a betrayal of Israel. An essential read for those concerned with accurate documentation of historical events and nations' accountability for their treatment of civilians living in war zones. (Jan.)
