Krauthammer blasts Goldstone retraction: Ranks with the 19th century ‘blood libel’ against Jews

When Richard Goldstone penned an op-ed published in Sunday’s Washington Post retracting some of what was reported in the Goldstone Report, which has been used to condemn Israel for war crimes in Gaza, it caused quite a stir.

And although such a retraction is welcomed by many Israel proponents, Fox News Channel’s Charles Krauthammer came down hard on Goldstone for allowing it to go this far and for the “excuse-laden” language in the retraction. He noted Amnesty International’s statement on the op-ed, stating more evidence would be required for that organization to rethink their stance on the Goldstone Report.

“That Amnesty International reaction is indication of how much the Goldstone op-ed is retraction – this weasel-y excuse-laden retraction is too little and too late,” Krauthammer said. “What he did in this report, the one now saying wasn’t true, the incalculable damage to Israel by accusing it — remember, the only Jewish state on the planet is accused of carrying out a war in which it deliberately is a matter of its policy attacks innocents, which was never true.

Krauthammer likened Goldstone’s original report and subsequent retraction to the 19th century attacks on Jews for blood libel and he said Goldstone has much to do to correct the record.

“In its 62 years, Israel has been under continual attack by terrorist and by large army and has conducted itself with more restraint and more humanity and more care about civilians and combatants than any army anywhere in the world,” he continued. “That’s what is makes the original report blood libel ranking with the libels of the 19th century where Jews were accused of ritually slaughtering children in order to use the blood in rituals. This ranks with that because it delegitimizes Israel as a war crimes state and once it’s delegitimized, it legitimizes all those who want to destroy Israel. He should spend the rest of his life undoing the damage and changing and retracting that report. A single op-ed is certainly not enough.”

    Can someone tell me any meaningful contributions to humanity that Palestinians have produced? Israel is surrounded by quasi-civilized factions that espouse the utter destruction of Israel, and that includes every single Jew. I’m sure Kingfish and JMK1502 posted their sincere condemnation and regret of the killing of the settler family 3 weeks ago, but I must not have seen them…

    • kingfish

      Nobody supports the old Palestinian tactics of blowing themselves and others up, or their being represented by Hamas. BUT, we’re talking here about the effect of zionism on the United States. They have totally infiltrated every government agency at the top, they are all loyal to ISRAEL, and they are constantly drugging us (along with the neocons) into more wars. They’ve been doing everything but standing on their heads for us to attack Iran now for 2-3 years. Their lobby, AIPAC, “CONTROLS” congress, not the American people, whose interests congress is SUPPOSED to represent. ENOUGH ALREADY! They need to control their own country, not USE UP FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT THE AMERICAN MILITARY AND OUR TREASURY.

      • truebearing

        Just how big of an idiot are you? We were “dragged into” war with Afghanistan because of the attack on 9/11. We went to war with iraq because of Saddam’s constant ambition to develop WMDs, and because he continually violated the no-fly zone, and because he committed genocide on both the Kurds and Shiites with chemical weaqpons, and because he tried to have George HW Bush assassinated. What the hell does that have to do with Zionism?

        Why don’t you see Islam as the biggest threat to this nation? They are the ones who want to kill everyone who won’t submit to their religion, not the Zionists.

        The fact that Jews are in positions of power in the government is no surprise. They also make up a disproportionately high percentage of doctors, lawyers, professors, CEOs, scientists, etc. Like it or not, they appear to be, as a group, the most intelligent and successful people on earth. That jews would end up in powerful positions is predictable, given the cultural value they place on education.

        Centuries of extreme adversity may have tempered the genetic metal of the Jewish DNA, who knows? But you can’t explain their success with paranoid jeremiads on Zionism. It makes no sense.

        George Soros, an anti-Israel Jew who collaborated with the Nazis in WWII, wants to create a global government and destroy this nation as a sovereign entity. Do you consider him to be a Zionist? Isn’t he a big threat to this nation, and is it because he’s evil, or because he’s Jewish, or is he evil because he’s Jewish?

        Is the desire of a nationless, persecuted people to have a homeland that is safe from the insane attacks of adherents to an insane religion such an unacceptable thing to you? Maybe you need to be persecuted for thousands of years. It might give you some perspective and compassion.

        It seems to me you should be ranting about the left and the muslims. They are the real threats to this country. I would like to also point out that without the advances in engineering and science that Jewish people have contributed to this country, we could have lost WWII and would not have become the greatest country on earth.

        Israel is a free nation which shares the same democratic ideals that we do. They are our ally and have a right to exist. They deserve our support if for no other reason than that they are threatened by every country in the Middle East, though they haven’t started a single one of the conflicts. We have always sided with the good countries over the evil, and if we stop doing that, we are complicit in the evil of those with genocidal goals.

    Israeli apartheid, like the Palestinian population, is divided in two. There are discriminatory laws and actions targeting Palestinian citizens of Israel, and there is the militarily enforced apartheid of the West Bank. The ever-changing borders of “sovereign Israel” contain approximately 1.5 million non-Jewish Arabs. In theory, the Palestinian fifth of Israel’s population has full equality, but the reality is very different. Palestinians living in Israel suffer both from discriminatory laws and from the discriminatory application of supposedly neutral laws. The Absentee Property Law of 1950, for example, has been instrumental in the theft of land from Palestinians over the last sixty years. It allows the Israeli government to claim land by declaring the owner “absentee,” a designation that is only applied to Palestinians (including those forced off their land by the Israeli army). A recent example of an openly discriminatory law: the Nationality and Entry into Israel Law of 2003, a supposedly temporary law which has been extended indefinitely since its passage, specifically forbids the spouses of Israeli Arabs from gaining residency in Israel if they are from the Occupied Territories, Lebanon, Syria, Iran, or Iraq. The list of discriminatory laws continues to expand, with the purpose of maintaining the domination of Jewish Israelis and oppression of Palestinian citizens.

    The situation in the West Bank is much worse. The West Bank is not a contiguous area of Palestinian control, but consists of islands of Palestinians, living in a sea of Israeli-only highways, settlements, check points, and closed military zones. There are more than 120 illegal Jewish settlements throughout the West Bank. The settlers, unlike Palestinians in the West Bank, are Israeli citizens, and Israel has created a huge system of settler-only infrastructure to facilitate movement to Israel proper. Palestinians, on the other hand, have almost no freedom of movement, and even the shortest inter-city trip can take hours if one encounters a checkpoint, making normal life in the West Bank impossible. In addition to the brutal occupation, Israel also engages in environmental apartheid, notably with regard to water rights. Though Palestinians make up ninety per cent of the population of the West Bank, they only control 17 per cent of the water. The rest is used by settlers or piped into Israel proper. The West Bank’s water fills Israeli pools and waters Israeli lawns, while Palestinians are forced to truck in clean water for drinking and irrigation. The oppression of Palestinians in the West Bank is systematic and horrific.

    Israel’s goal, with all of these laws and actions, is to maintain the domination of Jewish Israelis over all Palestinians.

    I am certainly not the first person to refer to Israel as an apartheid state. In 1961, Hendrik Verwoerd, then prime minister of South Africa who helped develop and implement apartheid policies in his country, said, “Israel, like South Africa, is an apartheid state.” The message now, as it was then, must be “End Apartheid!”

        • Jess81

          Your tiraid against Israel leaves out a few salient facts. For 61 years these “peaceful” Arabs have been killing Jews and the land that’s “occupied” could have been annexed under international law because Israel won it in a war STARTED by Arabs. Are you kidding about Israel allowing Iranians, Iraqis, etc entering at will? Are you kidding? And that monstrosity of a mosque built on Israel’s most holy site? Don’t get me started. The Jordanians were actively seeking to destroy all Christian sites. The Jordanians took their tanks and drove over centuries old grave yards outside the walls of Jerusalem. Do you remember the hacking of children just last month by these so, so picked on Arabs? Just like their animal cousins in Afghanistan who beheaded people because of a Koran burning in Florida, these people are monsters.

          Another small thing about Gaza and the West Bank, there would be no Palistinians there if their Arab brothers in Jordan and Egypt would have let them cross into their land when they were getting the heck out of Dodge because they were losing the war THEY started.

          One of the most difficult meetings I’ve ever had was with a group of parents whose children were killed AT SCHOOL by a member of the PLO who crossed over from Syria. The Arab lined up the children and shot them.

          If the Arabs put down their arms today and repudiated terrorism, the killing would stop. If the Israelis put down theirs, the holocaust would begin.

          I went to a meeting once, in Jerusalem, with 12 other Americans. There were two women from the US. The PLO didn’t like that. They do not like women and aparthied is a mere nothing compared to the way Arabs and Islam treats anyone born without a p#nis. Women are nothing but sexual slaves and breeders and female children are raped at will. I’m assuming you’re a man. Ask Laura Logan about being a woman amongst Islamic men. Aparthied would be a treat.

          • jmk1502

            Israel (who is comprised of mostly those of Judaic descent) and their many Arab neighbors (who are comprised of Muslim descent) are fighting a war based on someone’s mythologies, superstitions and fairy tales. How US policy should be dictated by those ignorant fallacies are an abomination on the US. Again, the Israeli (state-sponsored) thug terrorists who routinely massacre innocent men, women and children, then blame the people they are oppressing and subjagating, are despicable and are recognized by the rest of the world as what they truely are: terrorists, who are sponsored by US foreign welfare… I mean, “aid”. As for the US Revolution, ever seen “The Patriot”?

          • Jess81

            JMK, I’m calling you on this. “Fairy tale?” What ARE you talking about? Were Jews there for centuries before the Diaspora? Jews were kicked out of Jerusalm, but they NEVER left Israel. And if you want to go back to RECENT history, the Arabs were on Hitler’s side in the Great World War II and the same UN with Iran sitting on women’s rights boards, CREATED the modern state of Israel.

          • thephranc

            Who are you to decide someone believes in fairy tales? You believe in FAILED tales. I’ve read enough of your deranged drivel to see you are a Marxist moron who hasn’t heard the news that every derivation of the collectivist crap has failed miserably.

            The defining characterisitic of your nonsense is the fundamental lack of understanding of whatever you are babbling about. Your revisionistic tirades are the direct result of your education by indoctrination. You babble on and on about how the Palestinians are treated but fail to mention that no one is forcing them to stay, and that they would be far worse off living under the rule of either of the Palestinian factions. You fail to acknowledge the reason why the Israelis have to keep the Palestinians under close scrutiny. Then you prove your sheer stupidity by criticising Israel for not allowing Iranians, Syrians, etc to obtain residency.

            Your idiocy reaches it zenith with the unfounded accusations of terrorism on the part of Israel. It shows that you either are just too stupid to understand the definition of terrorism, or are too ideologically depraved to speak the truth.

  • jmk1502

    How many of you Israeli apologists on here have actually read the 575 page document? Goldstone retracted a very small part of this damning report, and if you actually read A) the Report, and B) what was “retracted”, a thinking person will quickly see this is another Daily Caller Spin job. And what do you expect the ultimate Israeli apologize Krauthammer to say?? It’s always the same mantra: “Poor little Israel (with billions of dollars in US aid and weapons) struggles to fight off their dirty Muslim neighbors (who attack the armed-to-the teeth Israelis with stones) and everyone’s out to get Israel”. Then, Israel kills some more innocent civilians, claims there were “terrorists” in the vicinity, and everything is fine and dandy again. Now, if people were to kill my wife, my 2 children, or any of them, I would do my best to attempt to kill those killers. If I had to do this with stones and cheap inferior rockets, I wouldn’t hesitate.

    • thephranc

      If you hide behind your wife and children its your fault they died. But I can see how some one as dishonest as you wouldn’t admit that just like the terrorists in hamas. People like you can’t be honest enough to admit that the IDF doesn’t target civilians while muzzy terrorists do.

      It’s nice to see how you support terrorism though. Says a lot about the kind of person you, as if your lies and dishonesty didn’t already.

  • jmk1502

    I’m just curious: why does Israel “not have to disclose” their nuclear arsenal, but every other nation on earth does, including the US? Second, the Israelis get away with state-sponsored terrorism and the murder of civilians on a consistent basis, yet they face no punishment or repercussions. Their “settlements” are illegal and Israel has been stealing land from their neighbors for years. What’s despicable is we send $3 billion per year (actually $6 billion last year) to one of the wealthiest nations on earth, for what? So after Israel commits another atrocity, it can create even more anger and future violence among the Muslims, since they know good and well who backs the Israeli thugs, without question? Rand Paul was dead on when he said we should NOT be supporting Israel. For that matter, if we cut out ALL foreign aid, there’s some deficit reduction and savings for you.

Somehow the entire rest of the world can see this for what it is: apartheid and brutal oppression tantamount to what happened in South Africa. The deluded percentage of Israeli apologists in the US are constantly misled by the hyper-pro Israeli American media. It’s telling that the media in ISRAEL is far more honest about the Israeli terrorizing of the Palestinians, I’m sorry, the “Israeli-Palestinian Conflict”.

            More than half of your post is spent attacking me with your opinion of me. But tell me: how did the future US fight the British because of them (the US) being heavily outgunned? How is that different from what the Palestinians doing to combat their brutal oppression? As for the SA analogy,

            The State of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians has been compared by United Nations investigators, human rights groups and critics of Israeli policy to South Africa’s treatment of non-whites during its apartheid era. Israel has also been accused of committing the crime of apartheid. Critics of Israeli policy say that “a system of control” in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, including Jewish-only settlements, separate roads, military checkpoints, discriminatory marriage law, the West Bank barrier, use of Palestinians as cheap labour, Palestinian West Bank enclaves, inequities in infrastructure, legal rights, and access to land and resources between Palestinians and Israeli residents in the Israeli-occupied territories resembles some aspects of the South African apartheid regime, and that elements of Israel’s occupation constitute forms of colonialism and of apartheid, which are contrary to international law. Some commentators extend the analogy, or accusation, to include Arab citizens of Israel, describing their citizenship status as second-class.

          Re: Death toll since Hamas started their crap. First off, Israel declared a unilateral peace (several times) because the world said someone had to man up and take the first step. But that didn’t stop the Arab world from continuing in its war on Israel. So they fought back. Unfortunately for the Arab side, the Israelis seem to be better trained and shoot straighter. Hence 4 to 1 kill ratio.

          And like thephranc said, if you hide behind women and children (or keep them at your side) while engaged in a shooting war OR use children as soldiers), some of those ‘non-combatants’ are going to get killed.

          You seem to be a fan of history. Don’t you recall that the Germans hunkered down in their cities because their great dictator wouldn’t let them flee? A lot of innocents perished. But the Brits sent their women and children far from the major cities and target areas to avoid just that same fate. What stops the Palestinian women and children getting out of harm’s way. I suspect it’s some perverse mindset.

          But that’s the best tactic these “Freedom Fighters” have come up with because the last time Syria, Egypt, and others launched a surprise attack on Israel, they had their (hats) handed to them and had to leave.

          I’m sorry, let me rephrase that in JMK1502 speak: “The last time their peace-loving neighbors threw them a proper party, the nasty Jews treated them with disrespect, spit on them, and then took their lunch money.”

    Krauthammer and Bill Kristol are two of the major spokesmen for Israel and AIPAC, and that’s exactly where their loyalty is. The Goldstone Report is most likely very accurate, and this is just ANOTHER move to SHUT THE WORLD UP about Israel’s/AIPAC’s/Lieberman’s strong-arm tactics against any criticism of the zionists who have infiltrated the U.S. government at the highest levels and control it. Yes, they can still get people like Helen Thomas and Rick Sanchez fired, but how are they going to shut the rest of us up? They can’t! Their anti-semite charges no longer work; the truth hurts THEM.

If the palestinians were to adopt western values, they would not be living in such squalor. It is self-made and aided by all other arab states, who need to deflect the focus to the palestinians rather than admit their culture is one of death and destruction. They hate Israel because its people have been able to create a free, wester, modern, productive, vibrant country in just 60+ years. An amazing feat! All while fighting to defend themselves from all arab neighbors. It is the hateful mentality of the arabs that limit their advancement and enjoyment of life.

      Eisenhower ordered the filming of what our troops found at the Nazi death camps and forced the German populace to “tour” the sites that were usually near large population centers so everyone who had turned a blind eye could see the horror. He did this because he feared there would come a day when people would deny these things ever happened.

      Seems to be here. Now, it not only never happened, but those darn Jews are in control of everything evil, huh, kingfish? They even brought down the WTC. Crafty bastards! You must be awfully clever to have seen through their disguises.

      • kingfish

        Maybe you didn’t read the Eisenhower saga far enough. This article described General Patton’s experience with Jews in WWII:

        “Most of the Jews swarming over Germany immediately after the war came from Poland and Russia, and Patton found their personal habits shockingly uncivilized. He was disgusted by their behavior in the camps for Displaced Persons (DP’s) which the Americans built for them and even more disgusted by the way they behaved when they were housed in German hospitals and private homes. He observed with horror that “these people do not understand toilets and refuse to use them except as repositories for tin cans, garbage, and refuse . . . They decline,
        where practicable, to use latrines, preferring to relieve themselves on the floor.”

        “He described in his diary one DP camp,
        “where, although room existed, the Jews were crowded together to an appalling extent, and in practically every room there was a pile of garbage in one corner which was also used as a latrine. The Jews were only forced to desist from their nastiness and clean up the mess by the threat of the butt ends of rifles. Of course, I know the expression ‘lost tribes of Israel’ applied to the tribes which
        disappeared — not to the tribe of Judah from which the current sons of bitches are descended. However, it is my personal opinion that this too is a lost tribe — lost to all decency.”

        “…These experiences and a great many others firmly convinced Patton that the Jews were an especially unsavory variety of creature and hardly deserving of all the official concern the American government was bestowing on them.”

          Why, you’re really an out and out racist, aren’t you?

The US should tell Israel to take a long walk off a short pier. Immediately withdraw all support, both military and financial, and see how big and bad Israel is. And look up the intentional bombing of the USS Liberty by Israel in 1967. My uncle died in that terrorist attack by the Israelis, incidentally.
