Zios in panic over Goldstone

London Jewish News carries a report of a petition headed "No to Goldstone" being posted to the UK Prime Minister's Downing Street website as follows:
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to declare the UK’s opposition to the Goldstone Report and to ensure its rejection when a vote is taken in the UN Human Rights Council in March 2010. We believe that the Report was biased against Israel from the announcement of the UN mission’s mandate. This was compounded by its composition, by the selectivity of the incidents it investigated, by the witnesses it interviewed and by its almost complete failure to refer to terrorism and to the defensive context of Israel’s operation in Gaza in January 2009. More details

Submitted by Jonathan Hoffman – Deadline to sign up by: 06 March 2010 – Signatures: 1,733

What's an "almost complete failure"?
