Gerald Steinberg maintains that an independent investigation is required to assess the European Research Council's funding to Forensic Architecture and its partnership with Amnesty International on the pseudo-scientific Gaza Platform.
Goldstone relies on statements, publications, and submissions from highly politicized and biased NGOs. This is inconsistent with the claim to have conducted a fact finding mission. By adopting the flawed methodologies, false claims, and distortions of international law from the NGOs, Goldstone renders his entire report and its conclusions invalid. The report includes more than 500 direct citations from NGOs that lack credibility. Goldstone and other members of the commission have conflicts of interest involving close links to HRW, Amnesty International, PCHR.
