    So yes, Israel may have violated laws to capture this ship. Is it in fact termed "high seas piracy"? Considering the cargo, I don't have a problem with it and if Israel needs to pay a fine of some kind, then it should do that.

    I do think that shipping arms to a terrorist group is much, much, much more of a problem than any "high seas piracy" to stop it. It ought to be on the front page.
    Give Pete a break. He comes from a country that has hundreds of years of piracy experience. Maybe some of his ancestors were pirates.

    He's just a bit sensitive about the issue.

    Yeah, but the US would most likely let them in and attack civilians. US intel is crap anyways. They know things, but don't do anything to prevent bad things from happening. Its not in the politicians interest to stop everything while in a war against "terror".

    I saw this story yesterday, and am amazed at those who actually think that Israel was wrong to seize these weapons. Regardless of where you come down in the whole conflict, the primary function of the state is to protect its citizens and sovereignty and Israel has done this by preventing weapons from being delivered into the hands of those who wish to attack both.

    You are right on the mark except for one word.

    It isn't a liberal agenda being pursued here. It's certainy an agenda, mind you, but it is based upon leftist dogmatism and euro style politically correct hatred rather than anything approaching liberalism.
