Or some variation of said headlines. Sound good, right?
The article from BBC is such a fluff piece. Benjamin Netanyahu, says "Israel has nothing to hide, the opposite is true"
Complete with 'analysis' from Wyrie Davis, and I quote-
Israel has a track record of not co-operating with, or giving limited co-operation to, UN inquiries.Well Wyrie Davis, before you offer BBC readers such an insightful analysis you should have taken the time to get informed.
There will be two extra representatives on the UN panel - one from Israel and one from Turkey - so perhaps Israel's involvement will go quite deep and perhaps this will be a genuine change of approach from Israel to the UN.
The panel's mandate (UN investigation) is to examine the investigations that Israel and Turkey are carrying out regarding the incident of the Gaza-bound flotilla on May 31. In addition, the panel will seek to examine the facts surrounding the flotilla and recommend ways to avoid such incidents in the future.
The panel will not be authorized to call witnesses - especially no Israeli soldiers or officers.
And Ynet news
Poor Israel, had to 'cooperate' with the flotilla probe
Source says Israel had no choice but to cooperate with UN flotilla probe BUT but will set strict guidelines
Official: State won't allow UN to question Israelis
Therfore, Israel will 'cooperate' without actually cooperating! How did Wyrie from the BBC miss this important fact in his brilliant analysis? Because I am not getting a "genuine change of approach" kind of vibe from this news.
State officials stressed Monday that though Israel had agreed to cooperate with a UN probe on the IDF raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla in May, the government would not allow the committee to interrogate Israeli officers, civilians, or soldiers
The committee would not receive testimony from any Israeli citizen or military official, and would have to make do with documents.
