    While Goldstone does not emphasize it, he is also saying that the Israeli investigation took place AFTER his report. And of course some war crimes were committed by Israel, as Hamas claims, such as killing policemen on purpose and the destruction of essential infrastructure (such as a sewage treatment plant). Goldstone does not clear Israel completely. He also does not blame his commission for a wrong report. The paranoid Israeli government refused to cooperate with the Goldstone team, led by a ZIONIST Jew (to elicit Israeli cooperation). As a result, of the non-cooperation, Goldstone could not question Israeli soldiers about the allegations of war crimes and could not discover the whole truth. Israel wiews Goldstone's article as if he is admitting that his report was biased because of his own fault. Not at all. This good man, and his unbiased commission, did the best they could. The people who should apologize to us are the paranoid (mis)leaders of Israel, most prominently Netanyahu, Barak, and Lieberman.
