Hezbullah is denying any links to a ship carrying hundreds of tons of weapons that Israel says was bound for the Iranian-backed guerrilla group.
Israeli commandos seized a ship Wednesday that defense officials said was carrying hundreds of tons of weapons from Iran bound for Lebanon’s Hezbullah guerrillas, the largest arms shipment Israel has ever commandeered.
Munitions seized by Israeli authorities on a ship near Cyprus, are presented in the port of the Israeli city of Ashdod,
In a statement faxed to The Associated Press on Thursday, Hezbullah said it «categorically denies» any connection to the weapons. The statement also said Israel’s actions amounted to «piracy».
The seizure spotlighted dangerous tensions between Israel and Iran. Israel considers Iran a strategic threat because of its nuclear program and long-range missile development, dismissing Iranian denials that it is building nuclear weapons.

«Its close to Christmas, and Iran just wanted to spread some light in form of some fresh new year rockets into the Middle East».
This is the message from the Ayatollah`s in Iran, and their president Mahmoud Amadinejad. These people are representing the «peacful religion of Islam», acording to US President Barack Hussein Obamas speach in Cairo.
The arm cache of Iranian rockets on a ship bound for Lebanon is of cource not ment to be fired into Israel. If Hizbullah was not the correct address, than who did order these rockets?
I guess it was money from the European Union who was used to pay the bill? Or maby it was payed by the United Nations, who yesterday branded the Jewish nation as a nation of war criminals, as claimed in the Goldstone report?
Since these rockets obviously were not going to be fired from Lebanon into Turkey or Syria, I feel that only a April fools and the present US adminstration will be able to belive in all the Islamic lies any longer.
