What really happened aboard the Mavi Marmara aid ship when Israeli commandos raided it and killed nine activists?
The Israeli government maintains that their troops were met with violent resistance.
Activists aboard say they were not armed and that the Israelis began firing live ammunition before they even boarded the ship.
One of the activists on the Mavi Marmara has found herself at the centre of the controversy.
Israeli knesset member Haneen Zoabi is calling for an international investigation into the raid and maintains that Israel's use of force was excessive and intended to discourage future aid efforts.
Because of her stance, fellow knesset members are calling her a "traitor" and "terrorist".

Some are even working to remove Zoabi's parliamentary privileges, to bring her before a criminal court and to revoke her citizenship.
Born in the Palestinian town of Nazareth inside Israel, Zoabi could soon find herself stateless.
Israel has successfully revoked the citizenship of two other Palestinian citizens but it has never done so with an elected official.
On Monday's Riz Khan we speak with Israeli knesset member Haneen Zoabi about what happened aboard the Mavi Marmara, the accusations against her and how far Israel's government may go to silence its internal critics.
This episode of the Riz Khan show aired from Monday, June 14, 2010.
