DEAR PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA:

I strongly urge the United States not to oppose the recommendations presented in the U.N. fact-finding mission led by Justice Goldstone. Rather than exercising veto privileges in the U.N. Security Council on behalf of Israel, the United States should seize this historic opportunity to confront the shocking and deplorable infringements of laws-of-war and human rights by Israel and Hamas alike.

Now is the time for bold action consistent with your remarks in Cairo three months ago. By allowing unobstructed Security Council action, the United States can preserve “confidence in the rule of law and the equal administration of justice.”

I echo those words and I encourage you to remain firm in your support of universal human rights. Bring justice to the Holy Land!

ON SEPT. 15, the U.N. Fact-Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict released its 574-page report, which provides in-depth analysis of 36 individual incidents in Gaza. The mission, led by Justice Richard Goldstone, concluded that both Hamas and Israel committed war crimes and potentially crimes against humanity. The conclusions were based on 188 interviews, 10,000 pages of documentation, 1,200 photographs, and 30 videos.

The Report recommends that the U.N. Security Council require Israel and Palestinian authorities to conduct credible investigations, addressing the alleged violations. Moreover, should either party decline the call for further investigation, the Report suggests that the Security Council refer the case to the International Criminal Court. While the Report and Goldstone have come under considerable fire from Israeli officials, Israel has yet to dispute any of the specific allegations highlighted in the Report.
