Goldstone defends himself
Richard Goldstone writes in the Guardian to defend his report into alleged atrocities by both sides in the Gaza conflict. He says that it would have been hypocritical of him to speak out about violations of international law and impunity for war crimes around the world and then not to criticise Israel for its attacks on Gaza, just because he is Jewish.
