The Arab-sponsored UNHRC resolution to endorse discredited Goldstone report

Following is the draft UNHRC resolution to endorse the Goldstone report’s absurd and one-sided recommendations, such as to indict most of the Israeli Knesset’s left-wing leaders before the International Criminal Court. It was submitted by Pakistan (on behalf of the Organization of the Islamic Conference), Tunisia (on behalf of the Araba Group), Nigeria (on behalf of the African Group), Egypt (on behalf of the Non-Alined Movement), on September 25, 2009, and is set for a vote at the end of this week.
