Israel raids German ship

The Israeli Navy captured the German ship Francop in the Mediterranean. Among the ship’s hundreds of containers, a few contained weapons, which allegedly were being transported from Iran to Syria.

The US spotted the ship, but allowed Israel to intercept it to avoid disrupting Obama’s dialogue with Tehran.

Technically, Israel’s actions constitute a blatant act of piracy, which once again testifies to the inapplicability of idealism and international law in time of war.

Hijacking a foreign ship for routine deliveries of small arms and Katjyusha rockets would be too much. The explanation lies in a terse official announcement that the cargo included anti-aircraft batteries “not seen in the region before.”
