Israel says commandos intercept arms shipment

• AP
Israeli commandos seized a ship Wednesday that defense officials said was carrying more than 60 tons of missiles, rockets and anti-tank weapons bound for Lebanon's Iranian-backed Hezbollah guerrillas.

The pre-dawn seizure near Cyprus was a rare interception of a suspected arms shipment by Israel, which has long accused Iran of arming its enemies. Israel offered no evidence to support its claim that the weapons came from Iran and were meant for Hezbollah.

 If, you would listen to the American or most any other countries diplomatic service you would swear that the only thing happening in and around Israel are the attacks by Israel against the poor neighbors.  The truth is, as it has been for sixty years, the Arabs need Israel to have a focus of hate or they will again start to go to war with each other.  No Arab nation wants a peaceful settlement with Israel.  Their ability to blame Israel allows for the focus of hate to be turned away from their own governments and allows the religion to focus towards an enemy that is not Arab.

Peace is a death note to Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Iran and the Saudi lands.  With the destruction of Israel, the hate that is channelled outward would be directed towards governments.  The money made for war materials would be used for war materials but for war with in the Arab lands.  The ability of the ruling governments to control the youth would dry up and the outcome would be a vast civil Arab war with one nation winning and then this poor starving millions with out oil income attacking anyone with good land and food.  At best a scary movie plot.  In reality the future in ten years.
