    A damning report from the UN Human Rights Council on the violence in Gaza late last year has put Israel on the defensive. Bill Moyers talks with the man at the center of the storm, Justice Richard Goldstone, who, despite working with many pro-Israel groups and Israeli institutions in the past, has drawn intense criticism from some of Israel's supporters for his report, which said Israel's Defense Forces as well as Hamas may have committed war crimes in Gaza earlier this year. Goldstone is a renowned war-crimes investigator, who has looked into human rights abuses in his native South Africa as well as the former Yugoslavia, Argentina and Rwanda.
