    I honestly do not believe that the contents of the speech are in any way a secret. I'm sure that the transcripts are available through news outlets. That being said, Israel's criticism of the Goldstone report is quite legitamate. The report alleges violations on both sides, and Israel has every right to refute it. Moreover, Israel has indeed investigated these allegations, and found them to be unfounded. As anecdotal evidence, I remember seeing on CNN a firefighter crew putting out fires that the UN claimed were caused by Israels use of white phosporous. Of course, firefighters would know not to mix phosperous and water. Moreover from my personal point of view, the Goldstone report is guilty of the same thing as much of the western world. It chooses to believe that both sides are equaly guilty. Not because of evidence, but because our sense of justice does not allow for an unending war with the victim also being the aggresor. However, had Israel truely been trying to hurt the Gazans, a lot more damage was possible. As is, most of the infrastructures, gas, water, electricity were untouched.
