    Israel to Take Part in U.N. Investigation of Their Own Violent Actions

    JERUSALEM -- Israel announced Monday it will take part in a U.N. investigation into the deadly Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla last spring, in a departure from its traditional mistrust of the world body.

    The move allowed U.N. head Ban Ki-moon to formally announce the creation of an investigation panel into the incident in which nine Turkish activists, including one with U.S. citizenship, died after being shot by Israeli commandos boarding their ship.

    "I sincerely hope that this will contribute to the peace process as well as improvement of relationship between Israel and Turkey," Ban said. The panel will include both Turkish and Israeli representatives.

    The flotilla had been trying to breach Israel's three-year blockade of the Gaza Strip. Both sides have said they were acting in self-defense during the confrontation, which has strained relations between Turkey and Israel.

    "Israel has nothing to hide. The opposite is true. It is in Israel's national interest to ensure that the factual truth about the entire flotilla incident will be brought to light and the entire world, and that is precisely the principle we are promoting," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement.

    Government spokesman Mark Regev would not say what, if any, assurances Israel had received from the U.N. chief.

    At U.N. headquarters, Ban said the investigation panel will be co-chaired by former New Zealand Prime Minister Geoffrey Palmer and outgoing Colombian President Alvaro Uribe. He did not identify the Israeli and Turkish members.

    The deal was reached after what Ban described as two months of "intensive consultation with the leaders of Israel and Turkey," and last minute talks over the weekend. He thanked both leaders "for their spirit of compromise and forward looking attitude."

    The U.N. chief said the panel will start work on Aug. 10 and submit its first progress report by mid-September.

    Ban expressed hope that the panel would meet the U.N. Security Council's call on June 1 for a "prompt, impartial, credible and transparent investigation conforming to international standards."

    The decision marks a departure for Israel, which has frequently viewed the United Nations with suspicion and accused many U.N. bodies of being unfairly biased against the Jewish state.

    Israel refused to cooperate with an earlier investigation into last year's war in the Gaza Strip conducted by the U.N. Human Rights Council, which it accuses of disproportionately focusing on Israel. That council's probe concluded that Israel and Gaza's militant Hamas rulers both committed war crimes.

    The statement from Netanyahu's office said Israel relayed its consent "after political contacts that took place in the past few weeks with the objective of ensuring that the panel and its written mandate will be balanced and fair."

    There was no immediate reaction from Turkey, which withdrew its ambassador and scaled back relations with Israel following the flotilla incident.

    Turkey has said it would not repair relations until Israel agreed to an international investigation.

    Israel imposed its blockade of the Gaza Strip after Hamas militants seized power there three years ago. Israel has said the measures were needed to prevent Hamas from arming, but the blockade has brought Gaza's economy to a virtual standstill. Under heavy international pressure, Israel has eased the blockade since the outcry following the flotilla raid.

    Israel is conducting a separate investigation into the legality of the Israeli naval blockade on Gaza and the military's actions in enforcing it.

    An Israeli military probe criticized flawed intelligence gathering and planning in confronting the flotilla, but stated there was no wrongdoing on the part of the soldiers.

    So, in essence this article is glorifying Israel's magnanimity in participating in an investigation surrounding their violent actions against a flotilla bringing aid to the Gaza strip. I was so confused while reading this as to how this could possibly be a good thing. Its like having a murderer serve on the jury for his own trial. While I usually enjoy the spin Fox puts on stories, this article clearly shows that the zionists control every single media outlet in the United States.

    The constant victims-joker card Israel tries to play really is disgusting. They've attacked the ships in international water, they've shot from helicopters onto the ships, they've shot on sleeping(!) people on the ships, they've confiscated all cameras after they'd brought up the ships.

    Still, some of the film material slipped through, some pieces can be seen here

    There was another video on, but it seems to be removed. It was a short snippet where the helicopters were filmed and showed the Israeli aggression quite clearly.

    This article (in Danish) contains another short video of Israeli soldiers storming the ship.

    And although Denmark is quite Israel friendly, there are harsh comments against that constant victims-joker.

    Nu spiller Israel igen offerrollen
    (Now Israel plays the victimsrole again)

    Det er også dobbeltmoralsk at retfærdiggøre Israels forbrydelser med, at det er en nation af efterkommere efter ofrene for nazisternes massemord.
    This is also double moral to justify Israel's crimes with that they are a nation of descendents of the victims of the nazi's mass murder.

    Det strider i virkeligheden mod Israels grundlæggeres tro at opfatte Israel som en nation af ofre. De ønskede at skabe en ny nation, en normal nation, en nation af gode jødiske soldater og landmænd, der adskilte sig fra de magtesløse jøder, der blev ofre for europæisk forfølgelse.
    In truth, this opposes strongly Israel's vital belief to see themselves as a "nation of victims". They thrive for a new nation, a normal nation of good Jewish soldiers and people, who are different from the powerless Jews, who were victims of european persecution.

    The article goes on to point the overdimensional weaponry Israel possesses and with which they try to enforce their version of the Middle East.

    Quite interesting is that while the UN and the Human Rights Commission basically are Jewish creations and enforce in all other countries absurd regulations - and Israel always is quick to point out the "hypocrisy" and "bigotry" when other countries oppose these enforcements - Israel feels "unfairly persecuted" by the UN / HRC for their obvious crimes that more often than not break international law. They've even bombed Gaza with white phosphor and each time they're critisized for their actions Netanyahu tries to make it look like they've acted in self defense.
