'If Israel cooperated, Goldstone report would be different'

Judge Richard Goldstone said that if Israel had cooperated with his UN-sanctioned fact-finding mission into Operation Cast Lead and if he had known what he he knows now, "the Goldstone Report would have been a different document," he wrote Friday in a Washington Post op-ed.
Goldstone writes that while Hamas clearly indiscriminately targeted civilians, subsequent Israeli investigations indicate that civilians "were not intentionally targeted as a matter of policy" by Israel. He lamented that Israel did not cooperate with his mission, as it would likely have influenced the Goldstone Report's findings.
