Israel can simply forget any hope that this report WON'T be considered by the UN Security Council. There is no way that any of the permanent members of the UNSC will block THAT. However, it is still likely that the Israelis can convince the US to veto any resolution referring this report to the ICC. Likely, but not "a given". I'll point out that previously the US has justified an automatic veto under the "Negroponte Doctrine". That doctrine does NOT apply here, because Goldstone has (quite properly) apportioned blame to both Israel and Hamas.
