An Israeli government inquiry into it’s own behaviour has concluded that it did nothing wrong in killing nine peace protesters in the commando raid on a peace flotilla last year.

Well, we didn’t see that coming, did we. When the Israel government announced that it was going to investigate itself we expected reflection, introspection, hand wringing, guilt and, eventually, remorse and justice with trials and sackings and the rest of it.

Well, perhaps we didn’t.

In other news, Sweeny Todd the demon barber of Fleet Street has found his practice of turning people into meat pies to be fair and reasonable after diligently investigating himself over a nice Kit-Kat in a break from the killing chair, etc.

In related news, Tony Blair in front of the Chilcot enquiry has said that Britain needs to stop apologising for invading Iraq and participating in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. Mr. Blair failed to actually say who had apologised and when. Mr. Blair also expressed regret for the deaths in Iraq, though he didn’t say why he thought you could invade a country without killing people.

Meanwhile, the Israeli government is considering hiring Lord Chilcot for future investigations into itself because of his stellar handling of the current Iraq inquiry. With Chilcot on their team they feel they can have as many inquiries as they want in perfect safety.

Etc.
