    "The entire Goldstone report is invalid and morally tainted." I was taught that when someone said Everything or entire, they were usually hiding something. Seldom is an entire report worth writing off. B Gold (any bias in the name you use?) take the report point by point and then refer to International law. Take the killing of 31,000 chickens and the total destruction of the farm they were in. A stupid little example you may suggest. The problem is that the deliberate destruction of civilian infrastructure in a conflict is a what? Look it Mr B Gold. You will find that is a War Crime". Now. The total destruction of a civilian concrete factory. Bulldozing it down to the floor. What is it Mr B Gold? Nice guess and you are right. It is a War Crime. Now don't get me started on killing civilians (especially over 300 terrorist children), White Phosphorus, Bombing hospitals. Have a guess Mr B Gold. Moving on from War Crimes towards Crimes Against Humanity. Good day to you sir.
