Two things happened recently that are out of character: 1. Israel lifting the siege after stating that it will continue because it is essential for security, and 2. The US cooperating with Israel in establishing a "commission of inquiry" by Israelis alone (with 2 foreign observers), after publicly supporting an international commission. My suspicion is that these two happenings are related, a "deal". Obama was for lifting the siege even before the flotilla incident, for humanitarian reasons. Israel saw the light late, but got something for its consent.
