PRC launches Internet website regarding Goldstone Report 30Nov09 December 5, 2009
The Palestine Telegraph -Â 30 November 2009
The Palestinian Return Center (PRC) in London as part of its Media activities has begun a project on the Goldstone Report. The center launched a new website to disseminate the major findings of the report and provide useful analysis. The website can be visited on www.goldstone-report.org, and includes valuable information not widely available or known elsewhere.
According to PRC media department, there has been a number of websites launched by pro Israeli lobbies and groups which adopt the official Israeli narration in respect of the Goldstone report. These websites include misleading and misguiding information about the siege and the War on the Gaza Strip.
PRC commented on the new website launched by the center as a new dimension in its strategy in bringing the realities on the ground to the eyes of the world. It tries to highlight the Palestinian victims especially the refugees who were the majority victims in the December war of 2008.
The Goldstone report tackles key points from the war such as the attack on the UNRWA school, destruction of UN food stockpiles, targeting of civilians, use of illegal weapons, excessive use of force and violence and the overall damage to infrastructure.
Developing on the facts mentioned on the report, PRC is holding a memorial week for Gaza victims between 13 and 19 of January 2010 where a number of workshops, galleries and speeches would be held in commemoration.
PRC strongly believes that the mainstream media has miserably failed to represent the truth of the conflict. Israelis misuse and manipulate the facts depicting victims as terrorists.
PRC, through its media department, will monitor and provide analysis of upcoming event on the Palestinian arena in an effort to provide an alternative perspective especially the continual plight of the refugees.
PRC media department added that the website focuses on three main stages, the Israeli withdrawal, the siege and the war. The actions of the Israelis in these areas are evidence that there is no advancement towards improving the living conditions of the Palestinians that are still under an illegal occupation.
