Human Rights Watch demands Israel behave like a civilised nation and allow an international investigation into its actions in Gaza:

US President Barack Obama should endorse the comprehensive UN investigation, headed by Justice Richard Goldstone, into violations of international law during the recent Gaza conflict, and should urge Israel, when he meets today with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, to cooperate with the investigation, Human Rights Watch said…

“Justice Goldstone’s reputation for fairness and integrity is unmatched, and his investigation provides the best opportunity to address alleged violations by both Hamas and Israel,” said Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch. “What’s at stake is not just finding out the truth about what happened in Gaza, but the future of international efforts to hold those who violate international law accountable.
