So the Human Rights Council may beg to differ with him. I was in the Middle East during the last three months of 2007, and almost daily there was astatement from one or other of the Hamas spokesmen saying that they would stop the rockets if Israel would lift the blockade. I think Goldstone should have taken this into consideration.
