J'accuse Goldstone

Instead, each NGO conveyed its version of events. B’Tselem alleged that 75% of those killed were civilians. PCHR originally claimed 70% and later increased to 85%, and DCI-PS alleged that Israel killed 352 “children” (PCHR claimed 313).
...
THIS EPISODE highlights the repeated unreliability of NGO claims, and reinforces the need for their careful and skeptical evaluation. Now that Hamas has revealed the correct statistics, a reexamination of these NGO reports is warranted.

Time for a new "J'accuse...". In Zola's time, it was a single Jew, Alfred Dreyfus, who was under attack. Now it is the Jewish State.

Goldstone, B'Tselem, HRW, PCHR, never revised their reports although we now know, as admitted by HAMAS, that half of the deaths in the Cast Lead operation were terrorists.
This of course invalidates the fantastic percentages of 85% civilians deaths alleged by PCHR and taken as granted by others, including Goldstone.
