    Goldstone is a good man who was used by the apartheid regime in SA to gain legitimacy and now he is being used by Human Rights and the UN for the same purpose. Israel (as a country) did not commit war crimes. Israel is fighting a vicious, blood thirsty enemy who is not bound by the Geneva convention?s rules (according to Goldstone), who is not wearing uniforms, who is using its own people as human shields, who is using ambulances for transport, mosques as headquarters, hospitals as bunkers, children as soldiers, attacking Israeli civilian targets and refusing to face the IDF on the border. Israel must defend its citizens as this is the most basic obligation of any state in the world and as long as the UN and HR insist on condemning only Israel they?ll keep losing credibility in the world and cooperation from the state of Israel.
