Dear John Tng and all Faithful Doves,

Subj: Netanyahu to UN: Retract Gaza war report in wake of Goldstone's comments

Following Richard Goldstone's op-ed in which he expressed regret regarding his report on alleged Israeli war crimes in the Gaza war, PM says 'everything we said proved to be true' and urges the UN to scrap the report.

 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the United Nations on Saturday to retract the Goldstone Report following the regret expressed by former jurist Richard Goldstone regarding the damning report on alleged Israeli war crimes during the Gaza war.

 

In the Washington Post column titled "Reconsidering the Goldstone Report on Israel and war crimes," Goldstone wrote: "We know a lot more today about what happened in the Gaza war of 2008-09 than we did when I chaired the fact-finding mission appointed by the UN Human Rights Council that produced what has come to be known as the Goldstone Report," adding, "If I had known then what I know now, the Goldstone Report would have been a different document."
