Rigged Against Justice
Philip Weiss discusses the significance and the shortcomings of the Goldstone Report, as well as the obstacles to Palestinian justice and Israeli accountability posed by the United States. As US UN envoy Susan Rice and the White House attempt to minimize the impact of the UN investigation into Israeli war crimes and crimes against humanity, it is up to global civil society to thwart the coverup if not the perpetuation of apartheid in Palestine. As the UN special rapporteur observes, the UN system is rigged against justice.
