Lessons from the Goldstone Report

Israel is right to be happy that Richard Goldstone is withdrawing his claim Israel targeted civilians as a matter of policy.  However they would do well to observe their own closed nature exacerbated the problem:

Goldstone said he may have drawn different conclusions had Israel cooperated with his inquiry; Israel refused to do so, seeing the U.N. Human Rights Council as irredeemably biased.

Israel’s hostility towards the press and openness only hurts Israel.
