    "guided not by human rights but by politics". 2.UNHRC prostituted the Goldstone report! 3.The investigation set out to condemn Israel and pronounced Israels guilty of war crimes BEFORE the investigation. 4.They chose investigators who had announced their prejudices prior to investigation. Goldstone and Chitkin had both condemned Israel publicly PRIOR to investigation 5.A systematic problem is the report?s extensive use of testimony from unreliable Palestinian ?human rights? organizations. For example, the report cites casualty figures from the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR). Among PCHR?s civilian casualties are two leading Hamas military figures, Nizar Rayan and Siad Siam. Numerous other Palestinian fatalities listed by PCHR as civilians were also listed on Hamas websites as martyrs and members of its militias. There is plenty more but care to refute any of the above for starters as you are so keen to cry demoniser or do you just want to stick with name calling ??
