The Israel foreign ministry has released a hundred and fifty page defense of the IDF's "Operation Cast Lead".
You can read about it here.
But I can tell you basically what it says in a few lines about any accusation, 'X'.
1. We didn't do X.
2. If we did X, it was legal.
3. If we did X, and it wasn't legal, then we are investigating those cases.
4. In any event, we will try not to do X again, if we can.
Just take your favorite war crimes – use of human shields, white phosphorus – and substitute it for 'X'.
I am not exactly sure of Israel's strategy, if it has one. It has now made its definitive case before the Goldstone Commission publishes its report, thus giving Goldstone ample time to examine the Israeli report. If Goldstone makes extensive mention of the report, then Israel will not be able to say that Goldstone ignored its side of the story. Of course, there will be those who say that this is not enough (a replay of the ICC verdict on the so-called security fence, where Israel only made its case in writing, which gave American Judge Thomas Burgenthal enough of a rope to partially exonerate Israel.)
This story "broke" yesterday. Since then I haven't seen it in any of the world media outlets. Ynet and Haaretz and Jerusalem Post. C'est tout.
Compare that with the sensational and instantaneous effect of the Breaking the Silence testimonies two week ago.
Ah, but as we Israelis like to say, the world is against us. Interesting that Israel can lose the hasbara war outside Israel to a small organization of IDF veterans.
That must drive the Israeli government nuts.
