Prof. Gerald Steinberg writes to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon regarding the integrity of the Gaza investigation and report following the resignation of William Schabas.
Gerald Steinberg claims that Judge Mary McGowen Davis has the option of bringing the curtain down on the farce of the Schabas inquiry into the 2014 Gaza war, and avoid further destruction of the moral principles of human rights and international law.
Gerald Steinberg claims that with so much evidence of failure, any continuation of the UN pseudo-investigation would only serve to highlight the immoral exploitation of human rights and international law as a weapon to target Israel.
Gerald Steinberg claims that a well-funded network of NGOs has long provided the political support for the Palestinian ICC initiative.

On August 2, 2014, a funding consortium comprised of the governments of the Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, and Denmark announced emergency funding to nine NGOs for use in documenting political warfare charges against Israel.
Gerald Steinberg claims that Israel would be wise to remember the circumstances of the past while it braces for "Goldstone II" or the Schabas commission.
NGO Monitors research demonstrates that, under Richard Hortons editorship, The Lancet has become a platform for intense political propaganda, particularly targeting Israel.
The vast majority of NGOs that appeared before the UN Human Rights Council session on July 23 condemned alleged Israeli war crimes and called for a Goldstone-like investigation into the current conflict.
As with the Goldstone process, a network of highly politicized NGOs have been repeating unsupported allegations of Israeli war crimes and campaigning for a UN investigation into the current conflict.
