Hamas is a terrorist group.
Israel is a country.
Should the US go around doing things worse than al Qaeda, simply because we're "at war" with al Qaeda and they're terrorists?
Ah, too late... We've already destroyed 2 countries and killed hundreds of thousands more civilians than al Qaeda was ever alleged to have killed... I guess that's a bad question for drastic military types with no compassion or humanity in them whatsoever.
Cyprus and Egypt stop Iranian ships with weapons for Hamas and Hezbollah
Cypriot president Demetris Christofia confirms the detainment: the ship was "in contravention of security council resolutions." On January 28, Egypt blocked an Iranian ship at the entrance to the Suez Canal: it was transporting weapons for Hamas. The Egyptian foreign minister accuses Iran of fomenting tension in order to escape pressure from the West on the nuclear question.
Iran pledged to continue its military, financial, and moral support to the Hamas Movement even if Damascus abandons the latter, should a peace treaty be signed between Syria and Israel, the state of war and animosity between the two countries be ended by Israel handing the occupied Golan back to Syria, and the Syrian-Israeli border be declared secure and demilitarized
But allegations made on June 24 by intelligence chief Tawfiq al-Tirawi mark the first time that a senior official in the Palestinian Authority has explicitly blamed Iran.

It's funny we're saying that Iran has nuclear weapons, and now the worlds going to explode. I guess we're forgetting Pakistan. They have WMD's, and they have terrorist groups who reside within the country, possibly even running the government. Then we're saying IRAN has terrorist ties and will blow the world up WTF is wrong with people????? Pakistan is probably more of threat to us then Iran.
......Then again Pakistan has a strong bond with US, just like slave and his master.

I honestly expected more out of ATS members than petty bias, ignorance, and trolling. Then again, the quality, relevance, and credibility of ATS has gone down in the last few years.

None of that is proof, it's all heresay.
Show me some criminal convictions and court documents not press reports.
The press lies all the time on a multitude of things.

UN: Cargo of Iranian ship seized en route to Gaza violates resolution 1747
By The Associated Press
Tags: Gaza Strip, Cyprus, Iran
The sanctions department of the United Nations Security Council on Saturday informed Cyprus that the cargo of the Iranian ship seized en route to Gaza in late January violates UNSC resolution 1747, which forbids the trafficking of weapons with Iran.
Japan's U.N. Ambassador Yukio Takasu, chairman of the Iran sanctions committee, told the U.N. Security Council the shipment of conventional weaponry constituted a "violation" of Security Council resolution 1737, passed in 2006 to put pressure on Iran to suspend its nuclear enrichment program.
In a letter to Iran, a draft of which was obtained by Reuters, Takasu said the Cyprus-flagged MV Monchegorsk, chartered by the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Line, was carrying banned items, including bullet shells, high-explosive gun charges, items related to 125 mm armor-piercing guns and high explosive anti-tank propellant
