    So, what else is new? An 'investigation' where all evidence comes from the perpetrators of the crime. The proper method of stopping a ship at sea is simple. First, you fire a shot across the bows, the ship heaves to and stops, and then you board the vessel for inspection. This case however borders on the ridiculous. First, Israelis jam all communications from the ships at 4a.m. Then they rappell onto the ship from helicopters. As anyone familiar with such activities should know, to rappell in any area the landing zone must first be cleared. To clear such a landing zone in a crowded area, the Israelis had to use some method of force; either stun grenades, tear gas, live fire or all of the above. Yet, none of these facts are apparently examined by any of these so-called investigations. Confiscating all media not carefully edited by the IDF may show the truth, but it appears that neither the Israeli government, nor the Israeli media, really wants to uncover the truth but merely to parrot the government line. So, what else is new?
