    Like Chris Linthwaite (bow to the master), I would like to look at the logical possibilities. 1) Israel is indeed behind the assassination. In that case we don't really expect her to cooperate with the investigation. But will she be able to block it? I have my doubts. 2) Israel is not behind the assassination, and will cooperate with the investigation. In that case she should be able to clear it up pretty quickly. 3) Israel is not behind the assassination (neither directly not indirectly), but will not cooperate with the investigation. Why? Natural arrogance? To judge from the talkbacks, that's the possibility they support. To most of the rest of us, Israel would be suicidally crazy to do that. 4) The assassination was carried out by Israeli agents, but not authorised by their commanders. That's a tricky one. Anyone got other possibilities they would like to discuss?
