    We can certainly trust the sponsor of Hezbollah not to try to ship weapons to a terrorist group.

    This could be dangerous. If they use the Suez they can hug egyptian territorial waters until right before Gaza. The only other option is equally tough, that in stopping them before they hit the Suez.

    This could get interesting.

    Maybe the terrorists on board will blow themselves up by mistake. We can only hope.

    What makes you think Egypt will have a problem with Israel, their partner in blockading Gaza, stopping an Iranian ship entering their waters without permission?

    They wouldn't privately. But publically they would never allow the Israeli navy to enter thier 3 or 12 mile limit. there is a 50/50 shot they would force the iranian vessel to leave thier waters upon exiting the suez. If they did that, the boat would be in international waters and the IN could stop the boat at thier leisure.

    My concern is a speed run in Egyptian waters along the sinai pennisula's northern coast. For propaganda purposes they Iranian vessel might try to repel boarders and go flank speed and beach on the gaza shore. Not sure if there is a good port that south in gaza.

    Someone know if there any Iranian diplomats on that ship? Of course we going stop this ship.
    My only hope is that unlike previous occasions were the people were deported back to their countries, those pepole will be held as a prisoners under the same conditions in which Gilad Shalit is being held by them.
