UN Gaza Flotilla Report Demonstrates that Forensic Evidence is Anti-Semitic

Posted on October 1, 2010


EP: Jeruslaem – A report released by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) revealed conclusive forensic evidence that Israeli soldiers summarily executed several Turkish and American civilians during a raid on a Gaza flotilla earlier this year. The shocking revelations have led many in Congress and the US government to question whether forensic science is, in fact, anti-semitic. In response to the report, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs stated that “we cannot trust forensic evidence that has clearly demonstrated an anti-Israeli bias.” President Obama was muted in his response, but did say that “forensic evidence will not help this peace process, so as far as I am concerned, it is not to be trusted.”

In a response to the report, Senator Harry Reid backed a resolution in the senate to condemn  forensic evidence in conjunction with investigations related to Israeli atrocities. “The clear and obvious anti-Israeli bias of forensic evidence should be condemned” said the Senator during a joint session of Congress. Reid later added that “in all seriousness folks, its an election year. If any of you see someone from AIPAC, let them know the wire transfer information is the same as last year.” The bipartisan resolution was passed unanimously. Former speaker of the house and 2012 presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich joined the chorus of condemnation by adding “I believe forensic evidence was used by the Nazis.”

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) declined to comment on the report. One official from the organization who wished to remain anonymous did explain that “generally, we pay politicians to speak out on behalf of Israel so we don’t have to.”

Jeffery Jones, director of communications for Human Rights Watch, was appalled by the official response in Washington. “Forensic evidence is  not a person or entity and therefore cannot be guilty of anti-semitism. It is like saying that you want to wage war against terror …….” Jones paused and then added “oh forget it.”
