After what was no doubt an exhaustive and scrupulous investigation, Hamas has found that it committed no war crimes during last January’s Gaza conflict, despite allegations to the contrary in the U.N.-sponsored Goldstone Report. Those missiles that the group lobbed into the Negev and the town of Sderot? They were aimed exclusively at military targets, the group insisted. The head of the investigating committee, who is also Hamas’s justice minister, concluded, “The committee worked around the clock to uncover the facts, despite the certainty that there were no violations of international humanitarian law or international human rights law that amount to war crimes.” Sorry you had to waste your time, guys.
