Israelis blast New Israel Fund over Goldstone Report of War Crimes by Israel in Gaza Strip
Extremists on Israel's far right have attacked the New Israel Fund for its ties to pro-israeli organizations that have supported investigating the war crimes charges by by the United Nation's special investigator Richard Goldstone in his report, the Goldstone Report. The extremists have used Nazi-era images to demonize the NIF which supports peace, two-states and an end to violence, and the NIF has come under increasing attacks by Israeli society. The biggest complaint is not that the Goldstone Report's conclusions that some in Israel's military intentionally murdered Palestinian women and children during the brutal and oppressive Israeli military assault on the Gaza Strip last year, but rather that they supported the charges that the war crimes should be investigated.
