The Senate is calling on the U.N. Human Rights Council to revoke a report that accused Israel of war crimes after the study's author retracted his conclusions.
In a unanimous vote late Thursday, the Senate backed a non-binding resolution sponsored by Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and James Risch, R-Idaho, pressing for the council to rescind the report. Richard Goldstone, who wrote the study, has backtracked on his claims.
The Senate resolution also calls on Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to address the damage to Israel's reputation caused by the report.
Gillibrand said Goldstone's admission of error was not enough to undo the damage and libel against Israel and pressed for the Council to act. Risch said continued use of the report by the U.N. shows a bias against Israel.
