The European Union's foreign ministers demanded an impartial inquiry with international representation. Israel opened an investigation into the legality of its raid on the Gaza aid flotilla with Irish and Canadian observers slated to participate. Israel and the US hope the move will reduce the country's isolation, but critics say the plan doesn't go far enough.
To be sure, Israel has had some success with such investigations of its past actions, but will this probe be enough to repair Israel's image?
What do you think? How will this investigation influence international opinion of Israel?
