Former Israeli ambassador to the UN Dan Gillerman left Israel for New York Wednesday evening at the behest of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman. Gillerman will assist with Israel's public relations campaign concerning the Goldstone Commission's report, which accused Israel of committing war crimes during Operation Cast Lead last winter. Gillerman told Israel Radio that he agreed to the prime minister's request after being convinced that every effort must be done to ensure that Israel does not suffer adverse consequences should the report be passed on to the UN Security Council or to the International Court of Justice in the Hague. Arab states are pushing for a UN General Assembly resolution endorsing the Goldstone Report. On Tuesday night, the US House of Representatives passed a non-binding resolution condemning the Goldstone Report as biased and not worthy of further consideration. The final decision on a UN General Assembly debate on the report is expected later Wednesday.
