38. Excuse me? I have NOT been shown evidence the report isn't credible...
You haven't read the report, Shira, so don't talk about what you think it is until you have...

based on the dishonest way in which the UN shifts virtually all responsibility for civilian deaths from Hamas onto Israel, all claims against the IDF must be taken with a grain of salt.

All that means is you want Hamas blamed for most if not all Palestinian deaths and cannot tolerate the fact that the IDF were responsible for some grave violations of human rights. On the other hand, I believe Israel should not be immune from being held accountable for war crimes and violations of international law, and am glad that Mr Goldstone has held both the IDF and Hamas accountable for what they did...

if this commission cannot be trusted on the Hamas human-shield issue, which lies at the heart of the entire 600 page report, why should anyone objective believe that the rest of the report is credible?

Not trusted by who? You and the Israeli govt? Who cares? I certaintly wouldn't, as neither you or the Israeli govt are particularly objective when it comes to this conflict. Also, yr 'hamas human shields' stuff isn't the heart of what happened in Gaza. You think otherwise for whatever reason you have, but that's clearly not true at all...
