Israel will have to accept it's criminal acts and behavior, an IHH representative said during an interview on Channel 10 News Monday.

The representative added that the Turkel Committee lacks legitimacy because it was not actually internationally founded, but rather formed by the Israeli government for Israeli interest.

He concluded by saying that Israeli "criminal soldiers" had attacked the humanitarians on the Marmara, who had had their personal belongings checked and cleared by Turkish customs officials before the flotilla's casting off from Turkey, and that Turkey, Israel, and members of the UN will all be present at the UN commission's final word on the incident.
