    "If Mr. Goldstone had described Hamas as war criminals and then criticized the way that Israel conducted this war, it would have been received differently by us," Primor added. This shows a total lack of understanding about what a war crime is. A war crime is exactly a violation in how a war is conducted. Mr. Primor's idea that the Goldstone Report should have laid blame for the war on one of the parties involved is exactly opposite of the purpose of a report on war crimes. "Crimes against peace" are violations of ceasefires, etc. "War crimes" are violations of int'l law regulating conduct in war. Israeli spokesperson fail. Read a law book.
