1. Goldstone Recants: No Deliberate Targeting of Civillians by IDF
by Chana Ya'ar and Gavriel Queenann

"If I had known then what I know now," Judge Richard Goldstone wrote on Friday in The Washington Post. "The Goldstone Report would have been a different document."

"While the investigations published by the Israeli military and recognized in the U.N. committee’s report have established the validity of some incidents that we investigated in cases involving individual soldiers, they also indicate that civilians were not intentionally targeted as a matter of policy," Goldstone wrote

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldstone_Report

The United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict, known as the Goldstone Report, was a team established in April 2009 by the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) during the Gaza War as an independent international fact-finding mission to investigate alleged violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law in the Palestinian territories, particularly the Gaza Strip, in connection with Operation Cast Lead.[1] South African jurist Richard Goldstone was appointed to head the mission.[1][2]

The report accused both Israel Defense Forces and Palestinian militants of war crimes and possible crimes against humanity. It recommended that the sides openly investigate their own conduct and if they failed to do so, to bring the allegations to the International Criminal Court.[3][4] The government of Israel rejected the report as prejudiced and full of errors, and also sharply rejected the charge that it had a policy of deliberately targeting civilians.[5] The militant Islamic group Hamas initially rejected some of the report's findings,[6] but then urged world powers to embrace it.[7]

The controversial report received wide support among Arab and developing countries in the United Nations, while Western countries were split between supporters and opponents of the resolutions endorsing the report.[8][9][10][11] Critics of the report claimed that it contained methodological failings, legal and factual errors, and falsehoods, and devoted insufficient attention to the allegations that Hamas was deliberately operating in heavily populated areas of Gaza.[12][13]

Goldstone says he won't seek Gaza report nullification

South African judge Richard Goldstone said yesterday that he did not plan to seek nullification of his highly critical United Nations report on Israel's 2008-2009 offensive in the Gaza Strip and said claims to the contrary by Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai were false.
