The Zionist Federation of the United Kingdom and Ireland issued a statement Friday expressing its disappointment over the UK's decision not to vote against the Goldstone Report but rather to abstain from voting. "On Thursday the UK government failed to join the 18 States who opposed the Goldstone Report in the UN General Assembly," the statement reads. "The ZF applauds these 18 States but deplores the action of the UK government in failing to oppose the Goldstone Report and believes David Miliband is being duplicitous after his statement that the government believed that the Goldstone Report should not be endorsed," it continues. The federation called on its members "to write to their MPs to protest at this unprincipled action by the UK government."
