AMBASSADOR RICE'S MEETING WITH ISRAELI DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER AND SECRETARY-GENERAL'S COMMENTS ON GOLDSTONE REPORT

Ambassador Rice met with Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Ayalon on September 16, the day after the release of the Goldstone report on violations of human rights law and international humanitarian law during the Gaza conflict. Ayalon termed the report "outrageous" and said it gave Hamas a "free pass" on weapons smuggling into Gaza.
