    You, sir, are the one who should be ashamed. You have not read the Goldstone report, but you make accusations totally fabricated by you. That is intellectually dishonesty. Your quote, “fabricated the report he made with no real investigation, evidence...” If you read the report, you would know the following: “The Mission conducted three field visits: two to the Gaza Strip between 30 May and 6 June, and between 25 June and 1 July 2009. Several staff of the Mission’s secretariat were deployed in Gaza from 22 May to 4 July 2009 to conduct field investigations. Public hearings were held in Gaza on 28 and 29 June The Mission repeatedly sought to obtain the cooperation of the Government of Israel. After numerous attempts had failed, the Mission sought and obtained the assistance of the Government of Egypt to enable it to enter the Gaza Strip through the Rafah crossing. Due to the lack of cooperation from the Israeli Government, the Mission was unable to meet members of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank. Information-gathering methods included: (a) the review of reports from different sources; (b) interviews with victims, witnesses and other persons having relevant information); (c) site visits to specific locations in Gaza where incidents had occurred; (d) the analysis of video and photographic images, including satellite imagery; (e) the review of medical reports about injuries to victims; (f) the forensic analysis of weapons and ammunition remnants collected at incident sites; (g) meetings with a variety of interlocutors; (h) invitations to provide information relating to the Mission’s investigation requirements; (i) the wide circulation of a public call for written submissions; (j) public hearings in Gaza and in Geneva. The Mission conducted 188 individual interviews. It reviewed more than 300 reports, amounting to more than 10,000 pages, over 30 videos and 1,200 photographs.” You are at least dishonest, are you also a liar?
