Kadima leader Tzipi Livni slammed the UN Human Rights Council's endorsement of the Goldstone Commission Report in Geneva on Friday, and stated that Israel would continue to do "the right thing" in taking the necessary measures to protect its citizens from terrorists. "Since its establishment, the UN Human Rights Council has looked at Israel in a distorted and distorting way - exactly like the [Goldstone Commission's] report," Livni said in a statement. "The vote today was political and clearly cynical. Therefore, regardless of the council, Israel will continue doing the right thing - protecting its citizens in the face of terror, taking the necessary military action, continuing the international battle against the [Goldstone] report and ensuring the legal protection of IDF officers in every place," read the statement.
