    One cannot construe that "blackmail" can be used in this case. Lets move on. The Goldstone Report leaves much to be desired. Its tantamount to allowing the proliferation of terrorism. Mainly, the mention of some 8.000 missiles, which include Grad 2 and countless mortar shells were indeed fired into Israeli towns,villages and the city of Ashkelon. The above was not addressed. How can Israel react.? Since there is no real defense against said attacks. I agree, that Cast Lead has only resulted in the deaths of many, probably unjustified,as in the case of children, however lets be fair, fighting terrorists dressed as civilians has shown said results. As in the case of Iraq,Afghanistan and Pakistan. Good day from snowy Swiss Alps.
