the goldstone report made many unwarranted judgment which were not fact based. goldstone's claim that gaza police was a civilian agency is belied by the facts that its members came from the al-qassam brigade and from the executive force, both part of hamas terror network and both integrated into the interior ministry. the head of the interior ministry was himself a well know qassam brigade member. by claiming that the police was a civilian agency, goldstone was able to inflate civilian casualties by 17% at least. goldstone hugely enlarged his mandate beyond investigating the gaza operation to include israel's internal affairs. he criticises israel's judiciary, for no reason, and goes so far as to criticise israel's immigration policies. none of this has anything to do with his mandate. by so doing, goldstone clearly abused his authority.
