Report of the U.N. Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict, September 29, 2009

On September 15, 2009 a UN Fact Finding Mission led by the prominent South African justice Richard Goldstone released a 574-page report on Israel’s war on Gaza. The report describes in often shocking detail the serious violations of international human rights and humanitarian law committed by Israel during the conflict, some of which, the Mission states, amounted to war crimes and crimes against humanity. (click here for text of the report)

Although the report also focused on actions taken by militias in Gaza and termed the firing of rockets at Israeli civilians a war crime, the US State Department has condemned it as one-sided and unfair to Israel. In reaching this conclusion, the US government ignored the fact that Israel had entirely refused to cooperate with the Mission and prevented it from entering Israel.
