    The pro-arab terrorist sympathizers love to quote the Goldstone Report condeming Israel.

    Who was Richard Goldstone?

    He was a racist judge in South Afraica, who put many blacks to death.

    Richard Goldstone, Hanging Judge
    May 7 2010, 2:05 PM ET

    Yediot has just published a report detailing Richard Goldstone's career as an apartheid-era judge in South Africa. Goldstone is the author, of course, of a UN report excoriating Israel for alleged war crimes in Gaza. It turns out that this hero of the anti-Israel left (that branch of the left that equates Israeli policies in the Occupied Territories to the policies of white South Africa) sentenced twenty-eight blacks to hang for criminal offenses. To be fair, Yediot's reporting doesn't find that these defendants weren't guilty, and hanging was the law of the land. What is strange is that Goldstone sometimes appeared to embrace his role as punisher of blacks a bit more enthusiastically than might have been necessary:

    Even when it came to far less serious offenses, Goldstone sided through and through with the racist policies of the Apartheid regime. Among other things, he approved the whipping of four blacks found guilty of violence, while he acquitted four police officers who had broken into a white woman's house on suspicions that she was conducting sexual relations with a black man - something considered then in South Africa as a serious crime.

    In another incident, Goldstone sentenced two young black men merely for being in possession of a video tape showing a speech given by one of the senior officials in Nelson Mandela's party.


    The most serious charge leveled against Goldstone -- one of the most serious, anyway -- is that he is a man without a moral compass, who did what he did at the UN because he wants to be remembered as an avatar of human rights, and he knew that one way to become a favorite of the human rights community would be to lead the charge against that community's most favored target. This new report suggests not only that Goldstone is at best intermittently principled, but that he knew his old hanging-judge record would one day catch up with him.

    Judge Goldstone's dark past - Israel News, Ynetnews

    Judge Goldstone's dark past


    Yedioth Ahronoth investigation reveals man preaching human rights, who authored scathing report against Israel's operation in Gaza, sent at least 28 black defendants to gallows as South African judge under Apartheid regime

    He asserted that Israel committed war crimes and came out against the Israel Defense Forces, whom he claimed violated basic human rights. Judge Richard Goldstone forgot just one thing – to look long and hard in the mirror and to do some soul-searching before he rushes to criticize others.

    A special Yedioth Ahronoth investigation reveals Richard Goldstone's dark side as a judge during the Apartheid era in South Africa. It turns out, the man who authored the Goldstone Report criticizing the IDF's actions during Operation Cast Lead took an active part in the racist policies of one of the cruelest regimes of the 20th century.




    During his tenure as sitting as judge in the appellant court during the 1980s and 1990s sentenced dozens of blacks mercilessly to their death.



    This stain on Goldstone's past kept him from coming out against the death penalty on many occasions and from vehemently criticizing countries who still allow executions. Goldstone didn't bother confessing and telling about his actions in any of his statements or speeches.



    Yedioth Ahronoth's findings show that Goldstone sentenced at least 28 black defendants to death. Most of them were found guilty of murder and sought to appeal the verdict. In those days, he actually made sure he showed his support for the execution policy, writing in one verdict that it reflects society's demands that a price be paid for crimes it rightfully views as frightening.



    In another verdict, in which he upheld the execution of a young black man convicted of murdering a white restaurant owner after he fired him, Goldstone wrote that the death penalty is the only punishment likely to deter
    such acts.

    Attempts by Israelis to smear Richard Goldstone for his role in the Apartheid government of South Africa are particularly ironic considering that Israel was the main arms supplier to Apartheid South Africa between the 1970s and 1990s - a period when it was engaged in violent repression of non-whites.

    (In fact, after the end of Apartheid, Goldstone was welcomed by Nelson Mandela, who appointed him to South Africa's Constitutional Court.)

    Israel did much more to enable and sustain Apartheid than Goldstone.

    But scratch the surface of just about any Zionist claim, and you will find the same shameless hypocrisy.

    Abdullah, you don't know what the fuck you're even talking about. Goldstone is completely discredited as a judge during apartheid South Africa as well as having issued a report on the Gaza war that he, himself, concedes is discredited and that could never be entered into court as evidence.

    Israel is the ONLY country in the Arab Muslim Middle East and North Africa that is not an apartheid country. Every Arab Muslim shithole practices discrimination against non-Islamos, women and gays. Saudi Arabia bans non-Muslims from entering Mecca and Medina and has Muslim-Only roads. Saudi women are prohibited from even driving cars.

    So, you really don't want to go there, Abdullah, as far as apartheid goes.

    There were 52 executions in all of America in 2009, yet goldstone alone executed at least 28 blacks in s. Africa and sentenced blacks to be whipped.
