Remember the Richard Goldstone op-ed in the New York Times last week that flatly stated that Israel is not an apartheid state?

At the time I wrote "As night follows day, we can expect the rabid anti-Israel Left who embraced Goldstone as their messiah two years ago will issue vicious condemnations of this piece, and charge Goldstone with being a tool of the Zionist lobby, tomorrow."

Well, tomorrow has arrived. The anti-Israel stunt known as the "Russell Tribunal on Palestine" is meeting in South Africa this week, and its members are furious:

PROMINENT Gaza human rights lawyer Raji Sourani has called South African judge Richard Goldstone a liar, following recent comments he made in the New York Times regarding apartheid in Israel.

Speaking at a Palestine Solidarity Campaign event in the city yesterday, ahead of the weekend Russell Tribunal, the founder of the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights in Gaza lashed out at Goldstone for saying apartheid did not exist in Israel.

Last month, Goldstone criticised the Russell Tribunal in an opinion piece in the New York Times, entitled “Israel and the apartheid slander”. He wrote that there was no apartheid in Israel, and called the suggestion a “particularly pernicious and enduring canard”.

“It is an unfair and inaccurate slander against Israel, calculated to retard rather than advance peace negotiations,” he said.

But Sourani hit back yesterday, saying that Goldstone “is lying”.

“When he says there is no injustice in Israel, he is lying.”

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign also hit out at Goldstone in a statement read out by the organisation’s Martin Jansen. “The very recent but weak attack by Richard Goldstone on the tribunal not only exposes him as an ardent Zionist, but his shameful U-turn on the Goldstone report demonstrates his bias as a ‘juror’.”
The article also notes the comments from another member of the lynch mob:
Speaking at yesterday’s event, Palestinian refugee Leila Khaled drew parallels between South Africa’s apartheid regime and her own experiences in Palestine.
Leila Khaled is a convicted terrorist who was behind two airplane hijackings. Characterizing her as a "refugee" and giving her a place of honor at this so-called "tribunal" tells you all you need to know about it.
