Goldstone Banned from Grandson's Bar-Mitzvah

Rabbis say South African Jews angry at judge and that his appearance there could 'cause a scene'

Justice Richard Goldstone, whose UN report on Operation Cast Lead accused Israel of committing war crimes in Gaza, has been prohibited from attending his grandson's bar-mitzvah by the South African Zionist Federation, the Writing Rights blog reported Thursday.

It said recent negotiations between the federation, the Sandton synagogue at which the ceremony will take place, and the bar-mitzvah boy's family concluded that the judge will be banned from attending the event.

P.S. I guess there aren't enough "good" jews in Goldstone's South African jewish community that he would be seen in a positive light for standing up for truth and justice, and that he would be able to attend his grandson's bar-mitzvah. Does this represent a typical jewish community? Answer: Most likely.

Hey friend; thanks for reprinting the 'Hitlerize the economy' story and the link back.

Added a link to you in the sidebar on under the US flag.. I assume you're in the USA?

And Goldstone... that will teach him to not do his job, assuming his job description doesn't include covering up for that terrorist state.

Where did this anomaly Goldstone come from... perhaps even Isr-eli J-ws are capable of honesty sometimes!
