it seems impossible for Israeli's to accept that their soldiers committed war crimes and crimes against humanity in Gaza. These actions have been brought to the attention of the state and the public and the response has been to 'kill the messengers'. Goldstone has no axe to grind with Israel, and he tried to present information as accurately as possible, given that Israel refused to cooperate. If one reads the full report, not the interpretation of it by others, it is clear that atrocities occurred on both sides. Do Israeli's believe their soldiers are super human and never do anything wrong. This only contributes to the world's distrust of anything Israel says. Do yourselves a favor, read the report and don't dismiss it out of hand with invectives against its author.
