«Israel has investigated every war and action which it was compelled to undertake. We do not need outside judges»
This is the words of Israeli President Shimon Peres, when he thanked visiting Spanish Prime Minister Jose Zapatero on Thursday. Peres thanked Zapatero for his government’s recent action canceling the law that allowed putting foreign nationals, including Israeli leaders and officers on trial in Spain.
Referring to the Goldstone report, President Peres said:
«Israel has investigated every war and action which it was compelled to undertake. We do not need outside judges. We will not allow a majority that is hostile to Israel to judge us. If the Human Rights Council wants to be fair, I suggest that it consider Iran’s call for Israel’s destruction».
«Why isn’t Iran being investigated? Why does everyone remain silent?».
