Israel is in damage-control mode in the wake of this week’s public release of the United Nations Goldstone Fact-Finding Mission report on the 2009 war in Gaza. Anticipating the report’s biased conclusions, Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been diligently preparing its diplomatic counteroffensive.
