as quoted today by Voice of America: "The mission found that the attack on the only remaining flour-producing factory, the destruction of a large part of the Gaza egg production, the bulldozing of huge tracts of agricultural land, and the bombing of some 200 industrial facilities, could not on any basis be justified on military grounds. Those attacks had nothing whatever to do with the firing of rockets and mortars at Israel," Goldstone said. "These attack amounted to reprisals and collective punishment and constitute war crimes." Obviously Judge Goldstone understands the issues at hand. Can the apologists out there please explain how Israel acted in a moral way by intentionally depriving ordinary civilians of food? I didn't think so...
