WASHINGTON (JTA) -- The U.S. Senate unanimously approved a resolution calling on the United Nations to rescind the Goldstone report.

Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and James Risch (R-Idaho) initiated the resolution last week after Richard Goldstone, a South African judge, retracted a key conclusion of the U.N. report he helped author on the 2009 Gaza war -- that Israel had targeted civilians as a policy.
