UN Commission Flotilla Massacre Report - by Stephen Lendman

Despite irrefutable evidence, including the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) concluding last September that Israel committed serious "violations of international law, including international humanitarian law" by massacring nine Gaza Flotilla activists, injuring dozens more, in international waters, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appeased Israel by appointing his own commission.

On July 25, Haaretz writer Barak Ravid headlined, "UN delays flotilla report as Jerusalem and Ankara keep talking," saying:

It was another postponement to give Israel and Turkey more time to resolve differences. The expected July 27 release will be "delayed for three more weeks, to August 20, according to a senior Israeli official." 

It's the third time the release was postponed, Israel wanting more time to alter its current findings.

On July 24, YNet News writer Aviel Magnezi headlined what's widely known, "Report: UN Panel rules IDF boarded Marmara 'to kill,' " saying:

"The Turkish newspaper Hurriyet said Sunday that the (UN Palmer report) on last year's Gaza-bound flotilla (ruled) that IDF soldiers boarded the ship with an intention to kill."

As a result, Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan demands an apology. So far, Israel stubbornly refuses. Instead, it's willing to compensate victims' families and issue a statement regretting the loss of lives, a disingenuous gesture, mocking the activists they murdered in cold blood.
