Conclusions about Israel's guilt in Gaza were voiced well in advance of a 'fact-finding' mission

Last January, speaking to the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs, I asked the question 'What would you do?' if Ireland found itself in a situation comparable to that of Israel at the end of 2008, following eight years of rocket and mortar attacks on its southern communities from Hamas-ruled Gaza. In the months since, nobody in Ireland has come forward with an answer to my question.

An implied answer has now come from an international source, in the shape of the report of the Goldstone "fact-finding" mission into the Gaza conflict at the start of this year.
