Beijing will oppose discussing the Goldstone Commission's report at the UN Security Council or allowing the document to serve as a basis for lawsuits against Israel at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Chinese members of parliament told a visiting delegation of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Wednesday. The report accuses Israel of committing war crimes and possible crimes against humanity during Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip last winter. The Chinese statement came after MK Tzahi Hanegbi (Kadima), who chairs the committee, slammed China for voting in favor of a resolution endorsing the report at Friday's UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) session. The Chinese MPs stressed that the UNHRC had the necessary tools to look into the report without the involvement of other international institutions.
