Washington blasts UN Gaza report

There’s a common belief among Israelis that the Obama administration has abandoned them. But now, Washington is calling on the UN to deep six the report on last summer’s Gaza war which criticizes both sides for war crimes. Terming it biased.

Of course, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also calls the report biased.

There are those who fear the report will further isolate Israel in an “us against the world” mode which actually hampers efforts to bring a peace.

The Palestinians are reacting much differently. The report in hand, the Palestinian Authority heads, tomorrow, to the International Criminal Court, to file charges of war crimes against Israel.

This piece, in Haaretz, breaks down the report.
