The steadfastness of Israel to its goals of justice and its willingness to pay the price caused Richard Goldstone to change his conclusions, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Sunday morning in an interview on Israel Radio.

The foreign minister asserted that if Israel had cooperated with Goldstone's investigation, it would have set a dangerous precedent. He added that he doesn't want an apology from Goldstone. He did, however, continue his attack on Israeli left-wing organizations, "primarily the New Israel Fund," who he claimed gave information against Israel to the Goldstone Commission.

Goldstone, in an op-ed Friday in The Washington Post, said that if he had all the information available today at the time he wrote his report on Operation Cast Lead, that it would have been a completely different document. He said that it is now clear Israel did not have a policy of targeting civilians and that Hamas clearly continues to commit war crimes.
