Israel is a tug a war on investigation of Gaza re-suppy blockade and actions….

The Israeli’s are holding out against pressure for an International investigation…

Preferring an Israeli based look at the issue and actions…

Israeli officials said Sunday they would reject U.N. pressure to establish an international commission to investigate last week’s deadly raid of a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.

Instead, leaders are leaning toward an Israeli-led inquiry that might include international observers or participation, officials said.

Israel’s ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren, told “Fox News Sunday” that Israel was “rejecting an international commission,” as proposed over the weekend by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Ban suggested a panel headed by former New Zealand Prime Minister Geoffrey Palmer with representatives from the U.S., Israel and Turkey. More than half of the flotilla’s activists were from Turkey, including eight of those killed when Israel raided the ship, to prevent it from breaking its three-year blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Israel has rarely submitted voluntarily to United Nations review, saying its enemies dominate the organization and that U.N. probes are one-sided. Israel was furious over a U.N. Human Rights Council panel investigating its Gaza Strip offensive in 2008-09 and refused to cooperate with it. The so-called Goldstone Commission led by a respected South African jurist accused Israel and Hamas of committing war crimes during Israel’s 22-day assault in 2008-2009.

“We’ve had experience with the U.N. and kangaroo courts,” said an Israeli government official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

While this political…The Israeli’s WILL have to have some sort look/see into the process and initiation of the raid on the first boat trying to bring supplies to Gaza that was met by a military special op raid that resulted in 9 deaths  and involved a ship that had no weapons on board. The ship was a turkish registered ship , with people on board from that country……

Turkey has been a good ally of Israeli in the past and is extremely pissed with these actions…..
