Zionist commentators are concerned that the UN Gaza report – a detailed study of wilful Israeli killing of Palestinian civilians – is just all too inconvenient. Here’s Uriel Heilman in JTA:
For an Israel desperate to steer international focus toward the threat of Iran, the debate over the Gaza conflict is a distraction and an impediment to building a coalition for further sanctions or support for an eventual military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities. It also hampers Israel in potential negotiations with the Palestinians.
The mass killing of civilians in Gaza is a distraction, doesn’t the world understand that?
