Israel Goes Gaga Over Goldstone, Part 2

April 6, 2011 11:28 by

Yesterday’s stories that Judge Goldstone would help retract his UN report were too good to be true. AP quotes Goldstone straight from the horse’s mouth:

Nevertheless, Goldstone said, he did not intend to seek the report’s nullification.

“As appears from the Washington Post article, 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,” the judge said. “Further information as a result of domestic investigations could lead to further reconsideration, but as presently advised I have no reason to believe any part of the report needs to be reconsidered at this time.”

Meanwhile, John Dugard, The Guardian and B’Tselem all dig in their heels.
