Dueling PalArab responses to Goldstone

The PA announced that they will do their own investigation of Goldstone report claims, and Hamas is not happy.

To meet Ban Ki Moon's deadline for responses, the PA instead submitted a report describing how it will create a commission of inquiry to investigate the very few claims that Goldstone had against "armed groups." Hamas, in turn, is saying that they will not cooperate with any PA investigation, saying that the PA is not qualified to write such a report - and besides, Hamas already released their own investigation that found that everything they did was perfectly legal.
