'My wish is for an open Israeli probe'
After filing harsh and detailed accusations against Israel's conduct in Operation Cast Lead in the document released on Tuesday bearing his name, Judge Richard Goldstone expressed disappointment at the public outcry against the findings of the report commissioned by the UN Human Rights Council.

"I'm not surprised but disappointed for not seeing any detailed response," Goldstone told Channel 1 on Wednesday evening. "There was a very quick rejection of the report, even before anyone read it."

He firmly rejected the notion that his committee and its findings were biased.

"I deny that completely, I was independent, nobody dictated any outcome... the outcome of the report which was the result ," he reiterated.

2. I'm not under any delusion that there will be an open Israeli probe, if that is what you mean.
Otherwise, I can't comment, since I don't know what you mean.
