Goldstone Report Rejected by USA

Israel is not the only country which has rejected the validity of the Goldstone report. The American government has strongly rejected the report by calling it "deeply flawed" and "irredeemably biased."

In an article published on the AIPAC website, a summary of the flaws are listed concisely under the following headers:
  • The United States has rejected the findings and methodology of the Goldstone report.
  • The Goldstone report failed to recognize Israel's right to self-defense after years of rocket attacks against its civilians.
  • The Goldstone report is part of a pattern at the U.N. of singling out Israel for criticism and condemnation.
  • Israel's actions in Gaza were consistent with international law and subject to rigorous internal legal scrutiny.
