    Quote "Surely Israel ... prove that the command and control, and the orders for Operation Cast Lead were within the constraints of the Geneva Convention and that in effect Israel had not committed war crimes." The Israel: Gaza Report Update proved so in a expert , scholar , eloquent , humbled and dignified manner . Quote "Surely if Israel had done so (cooperation) they could have taken Goldstone point by point through the accusations made " If you cannot deny the Goldstone' hand picked 36 allegations ; You neither cannot deny that Israel (MAG) did not hand picked but seriously considered every submitted complaint (150 ) regardless of the source of the allegations, regardless of the credibility of the source and regardless of whether the source was neutral , hostile, or friendly, lady justice is blind and so is MAG approach , MAG did seriously considered the Goldstone' hand picked 36 allegations ; which MAG directly or indirectly or otherwise seriously considered , addressed and responded to , and MAG did responded to some complaints as fastly as possible even during the ongoing Gaza Operations . Quote "Israel cannot complain about the findings of a report when they refused to take part after the report was published" The Goldstone Report surely raise some eyebrows in Int'l Jurisprudence circles . the Goldstone' politicisation of his Report endangers and undermine the legality of the Commissioned Report and hurt UNHRC' mission image and Goldstone repuation as judge . But i deny any official Israel complaint . None of such a thing transpired from the Israeli: Gaza Operation Update Report
