Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday instructed the Justice and Foreign Ministries to examine steps that can be taken in order to cancel the Goldstone Report, Israel Radio reported.

Further, the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations was expected to take steps to stop proceedings against Israel following the publication of the report, which accused Israel of committing war crimes during Operation Cast Lead.

The move comes in light of an op-ed Friday in The Washington Post, in which Judge Richard Goldstone said that if he had all the information available today at the time he wrote his report on Cast Lead, that it would have been a completely different document.
