According to Goldstone’s standards, Winston Churchill himself should have been placed in the defendant’s seat as a war criminal.
On the eve of a European Parliament debate on the Goldstone Report, Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin warned its 736 MEPs on Tuesday against «allowing Goldstone’s new morality to take over international law».
European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek said the debate was a sign of his institutions growing interest in the Middle East.
«The European Union wants to be a player [in the Middle East] and we are doing it very seriously», said Buzek on Tuesday at a press conference in Brussels.
«Tomorrow we will discuss the Goldstone Report, the next signal that the European parliament and institutions are interested in solving the Middle East problem», said Buzek.
Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin gives the EU a stern warning:
«According to Goldstone’s standards, Winston Churchill himself should have been placed in the defendant’s seat as a war criminal, as would American and British generals who have killed thousands in Iraq», Rivlin said.
«In the meantime, it is Israel alone that pays the price of the double standard, which does not differentiate between the victim and the attacker or between terror and self-defense. If the trend is not changed, next in line will be British and American military personnel, and those of the rest of the free world».
He warned that the «new and crooked morality will usher in a new era in Western civilization, similar to the one that we remember from the  Munich agreement, which allowed a dictatorship to spill the blood of the free world, and almost brought about its defeat».

If the EU had invited Hitler to explain why the Jews are bad people, I am sure the European commission would have come up with a solid report of 200 pages. The list of Nazis that would have given «eyewitness accounts» would surely have been long.
But would such witnesses have been trustworthy?
What kind of credibility do Hamas have?
Do people who behead and slaughter even their own Muslim brethren, have any role to play in the International court of Justice?
