Israel and its US ally reject international investigation of the Gaza flotilla attack

The picture above is taken from the Figaro website. It shows young people from Gaza throwing flowers   to the sea to honor the activists who were shot to death by Israeli soldiers.

If they reject an international investigation so they must have something to hide. Their PR machine is in full gear blaming the activists for what happened but hey who violated international law? And who was in a defensive position, Israel or the activists? And why Israel has the 'right to defend itself' and not the activists who were attacked illegally on their ship?

And as Patrick Cockburn writes in Counterpunch: ''these PR campaigns are Israel's greatest weakness, because they distort Israelis' sense of reality.''

And the world might like to hear from the activists: Jonathan Cook writes about the experience of an Arab-Israeli MP who was aboard the ship that was attacked.
