In an op-ed denouncing the U.N.’s condemnation of Israel's war against Hamas in Gaza, Sir Harold Evans argues that Israel is not an “occupational power,” but rather a state protecting its people from terrorists. Evans criticizes the U.N. Human Rights Council for ignoring Hamas war crimes and the testimony of British commander Colonel Richard Kemp, who explained to the Council that, "The Israeli Defence Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare." The "collateral damage" was less than the NATO allies inflicted on the Bosnians in the conflict with Yugoslavia. While the op-ed says some countries’ votes were expected, it criticizes Britain for its failure to stand up for Israel and specifically calls out South African Judge Richard Goldstone for “lending his name to a half-baked report” that ignores Hamas war crimes and unjustly deems Israel the aggressor.
