mbassador Primor avers that if the blame would have been put squarely on the shoulders of Hamas and Israel's devastation of Gaza would been explained as an inevitable response to Hamas' initiation of the hostilities, Thr Report would be adopted by Israel. Of course. But what if the report would have described the Hamas' rocket barrage as an inevitable response to the 42 years brutal occupation and inhumane siege of the Gaza strip by the IDF ?. There cannot be a balancing act here neither equivalency. The root causes of the conflict are known and over the length of its duration no serious attempts have been made to diffuse and do away with it. Israel did not cooporate with the UN because it knew the report could not have been balanced because the conlicked lacks balance and it knew from its own soldiers that crimes have been committed in order to minimize its own casualties whatever the price the Palestinians had to pay.
