Israeli special forces on Wednesday took control of an Iranian vessel carrying arms intended for Hezbollah in a daring pre-dawn raid not far from Cyprus.
The ship was believed to have set out from Iran and later docked in Yemen and Sudan before sailing through the Suez Canal. Its final destination was believed to be either Syria or Lebanon.
The Antigua-flagged ship was discovered during routine patrols conducted by the Navy, according to a communiqué from the Israel Defense Forces Spokespersons Unit.

not content with the holocaust in the gaza ghetto they are now carrying out international crimes - adding on going terrorim and piracy to the filthy war crimes list.

Ben-Yehuda said that the ship had been carrying 40 containers filled with 300 tons of weapons each, all meant for Hezbollah in order to pose a threat to Israel.
The Israeli military said marines had boarded the 137m (450ft) Francop after its captain agreed to the search and no force was used.
A military spokesperson said: "All the cargo certificates are stamped at the ports of origin and this one was stamped at an Iranian port."

This is complete propaganda and staged.
If you also take a look at CNN's homepage, you'll see a giant sign held by an Iranian protester saying, "DOWN WITH USA!"

Let's see, 300 tons of weapons being smuggled to the Palestinian militants while just yesterday I was reading that the Palestinian people are starving.
Somehow, I think that the Palestinian people are being used as pawns by their own leaders.
