Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyhau on Saturday called on the UN to "nullify the Goldstone Report."

Netanyahu delivered a short televised address to the media in both Hebrew and English in which he addressed Friday's op-ed article in the Washington Post in which Goldstone said the findings of his investigation into Operation Cast Lead would have been different had he possessed all of the information."Goldstone himself confirmed what we have already been saying," Netanyahu stated.

"I think our soldiers and army behaved according to the highest standards" during Operation Cast Lead, Netanyahu said.

"We expect this farce to be rectified immediately," he said of the report which charged Israel with committing war crimes by targeting civilians in the Gaza Strip.

The prime minister added that the fact that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was part of the UN Human Rights Council, which commissioned the report, proves the absurdity of the findings. "It's time to throw this report into the dustbin of history," he concluded.
