It seems they know they are guilty and don't want to go to court. They neither want to apologize for their crime. They want to get away with it. And remember, Israel was and is free to file any lawsuits to organizers, participants, etc of last years flotilla. Did Israel filed any lawsuit? They captured all. Did Israel charged any of them? If they are criminals, ask your government, why they let those "goons" go free. Israel puts 12 year old kids for throwing stones in jail but cannot bring to court and charge those so-called terrorists for attacking(!) IDF. Hasbara may define "defending the ship" as a terror act, but not the law.
