UK gov't doesn't support call to retract Goldstone Report

The British government said on Monday that it does not support a call for a retraction of the Goldstone Report following the report's author distancing himself from the main allegations.

It follows Judge Richard Goldstone's opinion piece in Friday's Washington Post in which he indicated that Israel had not deliberately targeted civilians or committed war crimes during Operation Cast Lead.

"Justice Goldstone has not made such a call, and he has not elaborated on his views surrounding the various other allegations contained in the report, allegations which we firmly believe require serious follow-up by the parties to the conflict," a Foreign Office spokesman told The Jerusalem Post on Monday night.
