Israeli envoy to UN: Goldstone report 'political and one-sided'

Israel's Ambassador to the UN Gabriela Shalev told Army Radio Tuesday that Israel "totally rejects" the UN report alleging that war crimes were committed during Operation Cast Lead, saying it was "political and one-sided." "It's a difficult day when they make such baseless accusations against us," she said, adding, optimistically, that Israel had "good friends" in the UNSC, apart from the US, that would listen to its side of the story.
