PA, Hamas: Goldstone 'retreat' doesn't erase 'war crimes'

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri on Saturday dismissed Judge Richard Goldstone's "regrets" expressed in a Friday Washington Post op-ed article, saying that "his retreat does not change the fact war crimes had been committed against 1.5 million people in Gaza," and claimed that the group cooperated fully with the fact finding mission.
Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad aL-Malki said Goldstone's comments did not change a thing. "The report was as clear as the crimes that Israel committed during the war," he said.
