Abstract

This article examines the Goldstone Report on the conflict in Gaza and the international legal debates surrounding that report. It draws a parallel between the character of international legal governance and the character of governance described in the biblical Book of Judges. The article concludes that international law, like the Israelite confederation in the time of the Judges, is an advanced state of decay.

Keywords: international law, Goldstone Report, Middle East conflict, legal theory, law and literature, law and religion
