    The reporter, Jonathan Lis, was not present at the meeting between Peres and Rice. It was a closed door meeting. According to Ma'an, the quotes in the article come from a statement released by Peres' office. So, this is Peres' version of the meeting: 'The US pledged on Tuesday to help Israel combat the Goldstone report documents alleged war crimes committed during the attack on Gaza last winter. This offer to ?fight the Goldstone report? came during a meeting between US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice and Israeli President Shimon Peres in Jerusalem, according to a statement from Peres? office. ?It is outrageous that a respected institution like the United Nations provides a platform to spread lies and stories about Israel,? Peres told Rice during their closed-door meeting, according to the statement.'
