Iran Accuses Israel of Faking Ship Raid

By: JTA

Iran accused Israel of faking a raid on a ship laden with arms bound for the Gaza Strip.

“An Iranian ship carrying arms for Gaza. Captured just in time for annual [American Israel Public Affairs Committee] anti-Iran campaign,” Javad Zarif, the Iranian foreign minister, said Thursday on his official Twitter account. “Amazing Coincidence! Or same failed lies.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was in Washington this week to attend the annual AIPAC conference, where he pressed for a tougher U.S. posture in nuclear talks underway between Iran and the major powers.

Israeli troops on Wednesday seized the Panama-flagged ship in the Red Sea. They said the ship was laden with M-302 long-range missiles to be smuggled into Gaza via Egypt.

The missiles, which Israel said originated in Iran, would allow rockets fired from Gaza to reach anywhere in Israel; currently, the range for rockets fired from Gaza is Israel’s south.

  6. In a Monty Python sort of manner, they will no doubt do just that hook line and sinker!

  7. Why doesn't JTA mention the the USA has confirmed they gave intelligence information to Israel?

  8. YOU KNOW WHEN A IRANIAN IS LYING…AS SOON AS HE MOVES HIS LIPS

  9. Alan Kardon says:

    Interesting info, who confirmed this?

  10. How many more Russian, Iranian and Syrian lies are we going to listen to and even give ear too?
    I believe we have crossed the boarder long ago of credibility. Sanctions regrettably and threats of sanctions have produced exactly nothing. So what are our options. In Syria, we should bolster Israel’s boarder defenses in the Golan while at home in the US we should expand our use of natural gas and drill in every place that drilling can be done that is away from a critical water resource. That would drop the value of oil per barrel to about 70-80 dollars and then we position a fighter and bomber wing in Israel with the stated purpose of defense from Iranian nuclear aggression. If Russia responds in kind then send ships off the coast of the Crimea. The time of chess is over. All the peaceful options are nearly used up. The time has come to position our pieces in the most advantagous positions to assure victory should war be forced on us. So far we have not done this and war has been forced step by step on us and as a result of not taking these types of steps we have stood by and done nothing. Speak softly and carry a big stick is the best policy at this time. If we don’t we will soon find that someone is forced to use nuclear weapons to defend themselves. Defending ourselves or cowering are the only two options that I honestly see at this point. I served in the Navy from 80-85 and I don’t want war. I have learned from history that weaknesses will be exploited by your enemies and it’s obvious to me that our weaknesses are being exploited by our enemies right in our face and it’s time to put a stop to it.

  11. you got t Sheldon….but …the main problem is not that they are liers…BUT the idiot Westerners who believe them!

  12. LOLOL of course! Just like they accuse Jews of making up the holocaust.

    Now it’s our turn – Vatican invented Muhammed! He’s not real

  13. The best Israel had destroyed the iranian vessel.

  14. Uzi Kattan says:

    Israel should use the weapons captured on Iran's allies. They deserve to have their own weapons turned and used against them.

  15. Yoel Berel says:

    Ariel Snachule – not all of us are as gullible as you perceive

  16. Ariel Snachule

    They, and all the Arabs use Goebbels theory.
    THE BIGGER THE LIE, THE MORE OFTEN TOLD, THE MORE THE WORLD WILL BELIEVE THEM

    Unfortunately, the world believes all ther Arab lies. It suits the world, what with the spread of Jew hatred?
    So, hate Jews, then hate Israel. Unfortunately, of the +-4 billion world population, how many have ever seen or met a Jew. How many have ever experienced the truth about Israel and Jews?.

    Thank HASHEM that there are hundreds of millions of our true Christian friends who know that the Arabs and particularly, Abbas are born liars, and support Israel fully.
    When will HASHEM carry out his words. That HE will curse those who curse HIS people Israel?

    We must pray that HASHEM will carry out his worldsNOW, before it gets worse.

    Iran and others need a strong eartyhquake and Tzunami.
    Maybe then they will wake up. But of course, they will blame Mossad.

  17. Kjeld Hesselmann says:

    The Goebbles’ dictum: smear your enemy on every opportunity and make sure the lie is big enough is followed by present-day Nazis the ShariaState Iran. But fortunately such allegations are as boomerangs. The Iranians stretch this story just a bit too much. The dirty Mullahs’ lies are in line with their lies about their nuclear program, and they will fall by it.

  18. great timing, great results!

  19. Carlos Font says:

    Zarif thinks everybody lies because he is so used to doing it. Congratulations to the Naval commandoes.

  20. Yori Mendel says:

    The Ship looks mighty Real to me. So does it’s Cargo. Now Iran seems more Storybook too me. A very, very Bad One.

  21. The Iranians are taking a que from he Obama Administration play book, now!

  22. It is a real joke. How can you think of doing such things while you are busy defending your country! Big powers should understand and possibly take necessary action.

  23. Un-oficial spokesman for the State Department according to media sources.
