The Age: “Gaza report authors rebuke Goldstone” by Ed Pilkington, 16 April 2010

What happened in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead was not a war but a massacre of a defenceless, imprisoned and besieged population that were not even allowed the right to flee as refugees.

While Goldstone appears to have succumbed to pressure in his attempts to weaken the report, the three other authors of the Goldstone report stand firmly by its findings that Israel has a case to answer for crimes against humanity.

If the world allows Israel to whitewash itself yet again by rescinding the Goldstone report in the UN to prevent further investigations we will truly have degraded all the mechanisms of justice and continue to live in a world where hypocrisy prevails and might is right.
