What will Israel's Gaza flotilla inquiry achieve?
The three-man panel, all Israeli, is led by ex-Supreme Court judge Yaakov Tirkel. Israel rejected a UN proposal for an international probe, but has agreed to include two foreign observers - David Trimble of Northern Ireland and Ken Watkin of Canada.
The panel will consider how nine Turkish activists were killed when Israeli commandos stormed a convoy of six ships carrying aid towards Gaza on 31 May. They will also adjudge whether Israel's naval blockade of Gaza is allowed under international law.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) says the blockade is a clear violation of humanitarian law, describing the situation in Gaza as "dire". But while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reportedly promised peace envoy Tony Blair he will turn the list of items permitted into Gaza into a list of prohibited goods, there is no sign of an end to the blockade itself.
What is your reaction to Israel's inquiry? Are you satisfied with the make-up of the panel and the terms of the investigation? What is the future of the blockade of Gaza? What should the UN, Tony Blair and the international community do next?
