    Yes, cause I definitely can't measure the outcome and form opinion. You have to be there first hand to know for sure, right? Definitely no form of information transfer these days.

    And my original question on the matter stands. Where did Iran get those weapons from? If they made it, why print things in English? If we are to believe these really came from Iran.

    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.
    Too bad Israel can't just send the missiles back to Iran.... one armed missile at a time, or maybe in salvos of ten?

    Ikari, your take on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict shows great 'political immaturity'.
    You complain about the road blocks and the checkpoints in the Palestinian territories, while not understanding the role those methods play in preventing terrorists from sneaking into Israel.

    I do not expect you to understand what is terrorism, I do not expect you to understand what counter-terrorism is - I do expect you however to avoid making ignorant statements on issue you have no knowledge about.

    You say that Israel kills civilians and has no problem to do so, that is wrong, civilian deaths are what used the most against Israel in the political and international ground and Israel is doing its best to avoid those incidents.

    What one cannot do is to expect Israel not to fight terrorism, not to take out and drop bombs on terrorist targets that engage in the constant attacks on Israeli civilians.
    This is illogical, this is ignorant.

    What you are partaking in is simply an outright demonetization of Israel as a state and nation, declaring their goals as you see fit and ignoring the facts on the ground. (Leaflets, phone calls, etc)

    As I said before, I don't see a need to waste time debating with a person that is only willing to demonize and not to take an objective look at the situation.

    As the subject of this thread has nothing to do with the Palestinians, and since I've already made my points clear about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that you were so eager to bring into discussion, this would be the last post from me on that issue.

    If you have something to add on the Iranian arms shipped to Hezbollah here feel free to do so, if you wish to partake in denial and declare it all as "lies" you are also free to do that.
    You might as well join Pete here and say that the ship should not have been boarded, and that the arms should have been allowed to reach the terrorist's hands.

    I think if there is great political immaturity, it is on the part of Israel and Palestine, not on my part. In, what half a century now, they have been unable to solve their problems. It's because each side now sees the other as initial aggressor and that excuses all their transgressions. The entire point is that Israel is not 100% innocent. They have acted in ways which causes more conflict, the same as Palestine. And the solution will not be reached until both sides can step back, agree that horrible things went down on both parties side, and that they must move on in a positive manner. Until both sides are mature enough to reach this state, the end of conflict will not come. And as such, I do not support spending time, money, and effort on two states having a spat against each other that they can't resolve. It's not unreasonable. You merely wish to portray it as unreasonable as it holds Israel accountable for their actions.

    And my original question about the "Iranian" arms stands.

    Pete,

    So how long have you been an attorney specializing in admiralty law? Help us by walking us through the treaties, statutes and international conventions that support your contention. Thanks for sharing your legal expertise.
