Iran still causing trouble

Israeli commandos boarded and seized a Liberian-flagged ship that Israel says was carrying "tons" of weapons from Syria to Egypt. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the weapons originated in Iran and were on their way to Gaza, which is ruled by the Islamist Hamas movement.

"'We are currently collecting information, and the one thing that is certain is that these weapons are from Iran with a relay station in Syria," Netanyahu said. "It is our right and duty to stop the smuggling of these weapons."

Israeli naval officials said they found several anti-ship missiles that could be used to strike Israeli naval or civilian ships.

While everyone's distracted by other news, expect the troublemakers to take advantage of being out of the spotlight.
