There is much culpability among Lsrael's leaders. The news media, personal videos on YouTube, and occupants of Gaza that have sent pictures to friends in Europe and the USA have made a convincing case about Israeli war crimes in Gaza. Goldstone substantiated these crimes and pulled a cohesive report together despite Israel's refusal to cooperate. As a last desparate act, Israeli leadership have initiated a public relations blitz castigating Goldstone and attempting to leverage relationships with past allies. Netanyahu is trying to avoid dealing with the facts and instead is more interested in developing a smoke screen. The USA and Europe have recognized this. Current Israeli leadership are destroying Israel's integrity, the potential for peace, and the historic Judaic commitment to truth and justice.
