Israel Knesset Minister Danny Danon sets up class-action lawsuit to be filed in US District Court against Richard Goldstone of South Africa.
Yeah, I know…… Awesome for sure. But is this the proper jurisdiction to be filing international-based legal action ?
In the civil suit, filed as a class action complaint, the plaintiff says that he and others were “victims of libel by and through allegations and distortions publicly stated in the report on the State of Israel’s military actions during” the IDF’s offensive against Hamas in the Gaza Strip during the winter of 2008–2009.
Both Danon and MK Ronit Tirosh (Kadima) are listed as parties to the suit, which asks that the case be heard by a jury, and demands both an official apology as well as symbolic compensation to be paid to the State of Israel.
Danon said he plans to file a similar suit in Israel against Goldstone, which would go into effect should the judge visit Israel. “The Goldstone Report was a 2010 model of the blood libel,” said Danon, who is the chairman of the Knesset’s Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs Committee.
Seems as if this is being done more to get a point or two across and also as yet another attempt at waking liberal Jews who are basically dead from the neck up.
