      Livni Slams Goldstone at Yale

      Opposition leader Tzipi Livni criticized a United Nations Human Right Council's  fact-finding mission Thursday night for the report on Operation Cast Lead which drew comparisons between the Israel Defense Forces and terrorists.

      Speaking at Yale University in the United States, where she was honored as a Chubb Fellow, the highest honor awarded by the university to foreigners for their work and inspiration, the Kadima party chairwoman said, "I will never accept the comparison between IDF solders and terrorism, just as you would never compare murder and accidental killing."
