    Despite the excessive wrong committed. It can apologize for its miscalculations and the way the encounter was approached - BOTH of which are failures that Israel's already admitted to itself....and it can apologize for the deaths without admitting fault. Problem is, from the onset, it resorted to a ludicrous cover-up story that painted the activists as cold-blooded terrorists who "ambushed" the IDF forces who attacked their boat...and now it can't possibly change it's tune without further weakening its outlandish version of the event. Totally screwing something up is one thing, and it's forgivable...but to screw it up and then claim you didn't by slandering and villainizing the victims of your screw-up is NOT! And so offering money in compensation, without retracting the misrepresentations you've made, would be an insult!
