So Goldstone just wanted to be re-embraced by Zionist community

A sad New York Times investigation that essentially explains how Richard Goldstone was devastated about being shunned by Israel and the Zionist Diaspora. He wanted to be welcomed back. His report on Gaza is now tainted with his partial (unproven) retraction of allegations against deliberative Israeli attacks on Palestinian civilians:

“I know he was extremely hurt by the reaction to the report,” said Aryeh Neier, president of the Open Society Foundations, who has known Mr. Goldstone for years and remains close to him. “I think he was extremely uncomfortable in providing some fodder to people who were looking for anything they could use against Israel.”
