    UN appoints war crime team for Gaza

    The UN has appointed South African judge and former war crimes prosecutor Richard Goldstone to lead a fact-finding mission to the Gaza Strip.

    Mr Goldstone will investigate alleged violations of international law during the recent conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants.

    Martin Uhomoibhi, president of the UN Human Rights Council, said the mission would be independent and impartial.

    Israel calls the council biased and has previously refused to co-operate.

    Mr Goldstone will lead a four-member team, which also includes experts from Pakistan, Britain, and Ireland, in investigating "all violations of international humanitarian law" before, during and after the Israeli campaign in Gaza that ended on 18 January.

    "It's in the interest of the victims. It brings acknowledgment of what happened to them. It can assist the healing process," Mr Goldstone said.

    "I would hope it's in the interests of all the political actors, too."

    Yeah right. Good luck with that.

    Just add it to the list.

    Uncle Sam's big veto stick will see to it that Isreal comes out smelling like a rose.

    Or balls. They'll bow down to uncle's wishes whatever the outcome. Imagine appointing a palestinian to research the war crimes? There would be an upheaval of Jewish protesting. Bloody zionists, they have everybody by the balls.

    Of course, the UN would never investigate anything bad that Palistine might have done, because Palistine is always good and the Jews are evil, as everyone except the evil United States knows.

    Thats true but i wouldnt point all the fingers at the Jews. Im sure Hamas commited a few war crimes during the war too, but lets see.

    Are the crimes that took place in Gaza needs to achieve?
    Or is it more than 1400 Palestinians have been killed for no reason?

    I wonder if the UN has also sent a fact-finding mission to Afghanistan? Iraq? Sudan? Congo? Chechnya? Sri Lanka?

    Nah.
