    "The Goldstone report has been met with stunning near-unversal rejection—by Israel, by the United States, and even, lo and behold, by the Palestinian Authority itself."

    Sorry, no. This kind of attitude is a the kind of attitude that refers to Western opinion as "world opinion".  I assure you that the VAST MAJORITY of people AND countries in the world not only accept the Goldstone report, but having been making similar claims for years based on previous incidents. Take a look at the positions of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), for example, which DOES represent the majority of countries in the world.

    Do U.S. politicians and U.S. media reject the Goldstone report? Yes. Does even the American public do so, much less the public of the rest of the world? Absolutely not.

      ...all the media, even al Jazeera, have been presenting this story as if the whole world had abandoned the Goldstone report.  What is amazing is that the Western bloc could engineer consensus on an issue of such fundamental importance to justice for the Palestinians.
