British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw told BBC Radio on Monday he had phoned his Israeli counterpart Shimon Peres and told him: "If you have nothing to hide, for Pete's sake get this fact-finding mission in as soon as possible."

I think this soundbite asks for the following response:

Mr. Straw, if you and the EU are interested in something other than mere grandstanding, then "for Pete's sake" try to understand why Israel has a problem with the "fact-finding" of UN commissions that include people like Mary Robinson and Cornelio Sommaruga.
