President Shimon Peres called jurist Richard Goldstone, who led the UN fact-finding mission into Operation Cast Lead, a small man with no sense of justice, Israel Radio reported Thursday. The Goldstone report has been rejected by Israel and the US House of Representatives, but received broad support at the UN. Speaking during an official state visit to Brazil, Peres reportedly went on to say that nations which voted in favor of the Goldstone report at the UN made a mistake and hurt Israel.
