Goldstone Tries to Downplay His Retraction of Report
In an interview with AP, Richard Goldstone tried to downplay his retraction of the central tenet of the UN report, namely that Israel was guilty of crimes against humanity for deliberately targeting Palestinian civilians. He said that while "information subsequent to publication of the report did meet with the view that one correction should be made with regard to intentionality on the part of Israel" he has "no reason to believe any part of the report needs to be reconsidered at this time."
Only "one" correction? That "one correction" as Goldstone puts it, reverses THE entire premise and theme of the report. Almost everything else spins the "proof" for this central theme. When the most essential and slanderous conclusion of the report is negated, all that is left are the polemical contortions that prop up this false premise.
