Israel on Thursday night rejected he UN General Assembly's decision to accept the Goldstone Report, saying the decision did not have the support of moral nations.
"The results of the vote, and the large number of countries who voted against or abstained, clearly show that the assembly's resolution does not enjoy the support of the moral majority," a statement by the Foreign Ministry read.
The statement said that Israel rejected the resolution, which, it stressed, had no connection to "the reality Israel faces."
"During Operation Cast Lead the IDF exhibited higher standards of combat and morals than those held by the all the initiators of the resolution," the Israeli statement added. "Israel will continue to act to defend itself from international terrorism, as any Democratic country would."
