Daybreak: Goldstone, Vindicated?

Plus ‘noble’ and ‘ugly’ Israel, and more in the news

Print Email

• Recent indictments related to the Gaza conflict have left many wondering if there wasn’t a significant helping of truth to the Goldstone Report. [LAT]

• Visiting Jerusalem, Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) insisted that an Israeli attack on Iran is not forthcoming, at least at this point. [WP]

• The European Union’s chief foreign policy negotiator expressed optimism over autumn talks with Iran. [NYT]

• After its U.S. Ambassador endorsed military action against Iran (while in conversation with Tablet Magazine contributing editor Jeffrey Goldberg), the United Arab Emirates attempted to take back the remarks. [WSJ]

• Prime Minister Netanyahu heads straight to Egypt after departing the United States to visit Hosni Mubarak, who continues to appear quite ill. Uh-oh. [Haaretz]

• Nicholas Kristof has much praise for the the “noble side” of Israel—mainly its human rights NGOs—in contrast to the “ugly side” it frequently displays to the world. [NYT]

Glad to see that dissent is not tolerated at Tablet. And this whole time I thought dissent was the highest form of patriotism.

Yoni says:

Hardly substantive “dissent,” but really, Israel is so broken and ethically corrupt it’s sad to see its apologists dominate Jewish cultural fora such as Tablet. I miss nextbook and it’s focus on matters relevant to Jews outside of Israel and the Holocaust. (today’s story on colombian conversos is noteworth).

My first comment is still waiting approval from the sites moderator. BTW, nothing in my first post is inflammatory. Snarky yes, inflammatory no.
