    At the end of the day, what determines the closure of the story, is not the Tirkel Commission conclusions, but the cumulative weight of the testimonies of eyewitnesses on what happened on the ferry, and the hard facts: The bullet riddled bodies of nine passengers and three missing, and on the Israeli side, in contrast, three very slightly wounded soldiers. All this, in addition to the fact that commando raid took place before the ship reached the territorial waters of the Gaza Strip, will determine History's verdict upon the Mavi Marmara case.
