Kadima chairman and opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Sunday night criticized the UN fact-finding commission's report on Operation Cast Lead, saying it was unacceptable that IDF soldiers were being compared to terrorists.
"The state of Israel is highly moral and will not accept comparisons between an IDF soldier and a terrorist, between those who aim to murder children in restaurants and on buses and those who are fighting against murderers," she said of the Goldstone Report, speaking at an event at Sderot's Sapir Academic College.
"Every sovereign state distinguishes between intentional killing and accidental killing - this differentiation must be made relevant also in Israel's case," Livni added.
