Please note this Goldstone comment about his report: "We did not investigate criminal conduct on the part of any individual in Israel, Gaza or the West Bank. We made our recommendations based on the record before us, which unfortunately did not include any evidence provided by the Israeli government." Even the follow-up UN report by Mary McGowan Davis was in fact deeply critical of those Israeli investigations — their tardiness, leniency, lack of transparency and flawed structure. On the core issue of intentionality, McGowan's report declares: “There is no indication that Israel has opened investigations into the actions of those who designed, planned, ordered and oversaw Operation Cast Lead.”
