International judge Richard Goldstone on Thursday rejected Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's claim that pursuing both Israel and Hamas for war crimes would end the Middle East peace process. Netanyahu had said after a cabinet meeting earlier in the day that Goldstone's UN report on Operation Cast Lead in Gaza "would strike a fatal blow to the peace process" by denying Israel's right to self-defense. "I think he got wrong what our report is all about," Goldstone told reporters in Washington. "He talked about Israel's right to self-defense. That is not what the report was about." Goldstone said international law gives that right to both Israel and the Palestinians. Both sides, he said, violated that law by targeting civilians.
