OIC will continue to back Goldstone report
The OIC said that the report was rife with ”facts on the field” and that Goldstone's recent statements cannot change the fact that Israeli leaders are guilty of committing war crimes against Gazan civilians, as laid out in the report.
”[The OIC] will continue to adhere to the report's contents that were adopted by the Human Rights Council in Geneva,” the OIC said on its official website.
The OIC had already pushed the UNHRC to adopt the report and played a key role in having the report referred to the UN Security Council.
The OIC which enjoys a permanent delegation in the UN, also started the emergency meeting in the executive committee gathering ministers of its member states in the wake of the 2008 Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip and called for the fact-finding mission that produced the report to be formed.
