OC Central Command Maj.-Gen. Avi Mizrahi on Wednesday slammed Richard Goldstone and the report bearing the South African Jew’s name, saying he wouldn’t even want to pray alongside the jurist who headed the UN-appointed commission of inquiry into alleged war crimes during Operation Cast Lead.

“The report is not worth the paper it was written on, I don’t believe a word of it,” the general told pupils in the high school located in Efrat in a closed talk, Army Radio reported on Thursday.

“Goldstone was selected to write the report solely because he is Jewish,” Mizrahi told the religious teenagers. “I wouldn’t want to be with the man in my state, nor would I agree to form a minyam for prayer with him.”
