    Goldstone was brave enough and honest enough to report on what he found in Gaza. The people who hate him for this mostly don't know what he actually wrote, but simply hate him because the report was critical of Israel and their soldiers. He asked that Israel investigate the claims - what on earth is wrong with that?. That they refused means that either these incident did happen and Israel didn't want to admit it, or the Israelis didn't want to find out in case the report was true. Either way, Goldstone is a great, unbiased man and would not simply make up such things. The haters should hide their heads in shame. That some SA Jews should mess up a child's bar mitzvah over this shows just how low these people will stoop. It's great men like Goldstone that shine a light on the Jewish faith and he deserves more accolades.
