The Gaza War, the Goldstone report, and the aftermath were all mismanaged by Israel's leadership, going from one foul up to another. From the beginning, banning journalists from entering was counter to the behaviour of all democratic societies and lent credence to the suspicion that Israel felt guilty and was hiding something. Using phosphorous shells that were filmed and widely seen on all the media was unecessary, and the denials were lame and false. Not cooperating with Goldstone only further fueled the suspicions that Israel felt guilty. Goldstones error was in not addressing Hamas' responsiblity for the war thru it's rocketting of civilian areas. Not Goldstone or any other pundit or body can give a better military plan than the one israel used. Both Hezbollah and Hamas have stopped rocketting. The Arabs understand brute force. Goldstone only understands narrow legalistic rhetoric and playing fair to the point of unfairness. He has lent himself to be used as a puppet..
