"The Goldstone Commission was established to find Israel guilty of crimes predetermined, and the members of the committee didn't let the facts confuse them," Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a statement Thursday, joining the Israeli diplomatic blitz to curb the potential damage of the investigation into Operation Cast Lead. The report published the findings of a UN body which investigated Israeli for alleged war crimes in Gaza. In response to its publication, Lieberman said that "the sole purpose of the report was to undermine Israel's image at the beckoning of countries that are not familiar with the terms 'human rights' and 'war ethics.'" "I can wholeheartedly say that the IDF is the most moral army in the world, and any person examining the facts objectively would agree," he continued, during a tour of Balkan states. "The Goldstone Report wants to return the UN to the dark days in which it determined, at the initiative of biased states, that Zionism is racism… it has no legal, factual or moral value, and is testament to its composers and initiators more than it is to the State of Israel. "The State of Israel will continue to protect its citizens from terrorist attacks and terror organizations, as it will keep on safeguarding its soldiers from attacks of hypocrisy and distortion," Lieberman added.
