    "Yet five internal army panels set up by Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi to investigate the IDF's actions during Cast Lead initially said there was no evidence that Israel had attacked the site at all." - Haaretz "There was a horrific attack on a mosque (Maqadmah Mosque) when people were at prayer, killing and wounding a great many people when a missile discharged tungsten micro-shrapnel; the Israelis deny ever firing it but there is nobody else on earth that could or did do it... First of all they(Hamas) didn't impede the public inquiries we instituted in Gaza. They didn't intimidate. They met us twice themselves. We had major conferences with all of their functionaries. It was in everyone's interest in Gaza to facilitate our enquiries, Hamas included. This was because the military actions were so punitive on the civilian population...However, I have to be honest and say that we would probably have found it difficult to get people to queue up and give us information about Hamas' misbehaviour within Gaza". - Col. Travers of the Goldstone team
