Despite Israel's objections, the U.N. will be investigating possible war crimes during the country's conflict in Gaza five months ago. The investigation will be carried out by the U.N. Human Rights Council, which has faced a barrage of criticism for unfairly focusing on Israel. The head of the inquiry is Richard Goldstone, a respected South African war crimes prosecutor who is Jewish. Goldstone's excellent reputation has not changed Israel's stance, and all signs point to the country not cooperating with the investigation. During the recent conflict in Gaza, Israel bombed U.N. property and is accused of unlawfully targeting civilians. Israel's own inquiry into its actions found no evidence of wrongdoing. 1,300 Palestinians died in the conflict, along with ten Israeli soldiers.
