Saw about a 30 seconds of this news on FOX News at about 00:05 this AM. [b]Israeli ship loaded with arms for Iran was caught by German authorities.[/b] Israel says it will investigate. (Investigate my ass.)

Maybe it was Yasser's boat in disguise. Just like that munitions boat they discovered last year. Or was it early this year?

Nope ! Israeli ship loaded with arms for Iran. Nothing in my emails from CNBC, MSNBC, etc., this AM. The US government, the US media and the Israelis will likely sweep this under a rug ASAP. Probably already have. I know we can depend on Israel for a truthful and full investigation. [b]After all, Israel is the friend and ally of all you Israel Firsters !![/b]

They're probably trying to re-ignite a war between Iran & Iraq. I hope they blow each other to smithereens.

They have been selling stuff to China as well, This does concern me greatly. We do give them the highest technology that we export to any foreign country, and loan technology that never goes to any other country, including the UK. Intel that we would share with no one else was shared with Israel as well. While I have supported backing Israel in the ME, I think we must DEMAND that these types of activities stop, and stop supplying them with our secrets, both hi tech and intel. We must also take into consideration that in a free market society, that companies do often sell out for profit, even if it places it's own country or friendly nations at risk. How about our own Lorral? Thoughts to ponder....

Here's the Israeli version of this event. See if you think there is a problem with the Israeli givernment and how it handled the matter. [size=4]Germany: Israeli military shipment was bound for Iran[/size=4] By Ellis Shuman August 29, 2002 German customs officials stopped a private Israeli shipment of rubber treads for armored personnel carriers and charged that it was bound for Iran. German customs officials stopped a private Israeli shipment of rubber treads for armored personnel carriers bound for Thailand and said the cargo was actually being delivered to Iran. The ship, which was docked in Hamburg for several days, is sailing back to Israel. [b]The company which provided the parts may not have known the final destination, but its owners were suspected of selling arms to Iran in the past.[/b] Defense Ministry officials and Israeli Police have launched an investigation into the incident. A statement issued by the Defense Ministry said the export of the rubber treads had been authorized on the premise that the cargo was headed for Thailand. "German customs authorities informed the Defense Ministry that the final destination (of the ship's cargo) was Iran. The Defense Ministry prohibits the sale of military equipment or spare parts for weapons of any kind to Iran," the statement said. The shipment, onboard the [i][b]Zim Antwerpen[/b][/i], consisted of 3,000 rubber treads for M-113 armored personnel carriers in two containers. The treads were manufactured in Israel by Tagel, a company located in the Haifa Bay area. Tagel, which is not suspected of any wrongdoing, sold the equipment to another Israeli company - P.A.D. (pronounced pee-odd) - owned by Avichai Weinstein, 34, an arms dealer from Netanya. P.A.D. received export authorization after declaring that the rubber treads would be taken off the ship for local use in Thailand, Maariv reported. The shipment was due to be transferred via a Malaysian company to a German company by the name of Steinsurt. According to media reports, customs officials believe that this German company intended to ship the equipment to Iran onboard the [i][b]Iran Baakeri[/b][/i], but this transfer may have been planned for the Far East. Israel has no trade relations with Malaysia, Army Radio noted. Weinstein's brother-in-law and business partner, Eli Cohen, 52, was suspected three years ago of trying to sell tank engines to Iran. Weinstein reportedly assisted Cohen in the planned transaction, and both men were questioned but no indictments were issued against them. Maariv reported that Cohen worked, starting in 1996, with a South Korean arms dealer who had trade connections with Iran. As a result of these suspicions, the Defense Ministry rescinded contacts with P.A.D. and canceled Weinstein's permits to export military equipment. But Weinstein appealed to the High Court of Justice and his export permits were reinstated, Yediot Aharonot reported. "Everything has been done legally and with all the necessary permits," Haim Misgav, Weinstein's attorney, told ynet. "My client can't export a pin out of the country without permission of the Defense Ministry. He sold the equipment to a company from Thailand, and there is no way he can know where it will eventually end up." Misgav said that Weinstein is in Israel, but refuses to comment on the issue based on recommendations of his rabbi. [b]Officials in the Defense Ministry commented that the arms deal "stank" and said that Weinstein "would have to give pretty good explanations for his actions." The officials said, "It is strange that the same person is repeatedly suspected for trading with an enemy country like Iran, and it is likely that this is not just a series of coincidences," Maariv reported[/b]. German authorities said the [i][b]Zim Antwerpen[/b][/i] would be returning to Israel with the two containers. German Foreign Ministry officials refused to comment on the shipment. Israel's Zim shipping company said that it has no connection to the content of cargo on its ships, and that the Zim Antwerpen carried some 500 containers, all of which received the proper permits and authorizations. [b]In 1998, an Israeli court sentenced Nahum Manbar to 16 years in prison for arranging to sell Iran materials for making poison gas. Manbar's claim that he was not alone in trading with Iran, and that Israeli companies were also selling arms to the Islamic republic, was rejected by the judges, Ha'aretz reported.[/b] See article at: [url]http://web.israelinsider.com/bin/en.jsp?enPage=ArticlePage&enDisplay=view&enDispWhat=object&enDispWho=Article%5El1383&enZone=Security&enVersion=0&[/url] Now the question is: why do you 'Israel Bashers' insist on seeing everything done by an Israeli private company as something done by the Israeli government? The Israeli government had no interest in having poison gas components sold to Iran for possible use against Israeli citizens! Get a grip! Go grab a cup of coffee and smoke a cigarette or something!

The rubber is just the pad. It bolts into the track sections (metal). The pads wear out fairly quickly, and are used for extra traction on roads and to prevent road damage.

Yet another example of how bright the Israelis aren't. The Israeli government no doubt didn't have anything to do with it (it was done by an Israeli company) but they didn't stop it either. This isn't surprising if you take into account that over half of the weapons in the Palestinian territories came from Israel, even from Israeli settlers in the West Bank (the same settlers who are shot dead by those very weapons). I can hear them whining come the next Arab-Israeli war - "Save us USA, save us, they are killing us with our (and your) weapons!! Help us, help us!! More weapons, more money, we promise we won't arm our enemies this time!!!"

Why? Simple. The word is "GREED" which can surpass even centuries old hatreds. They get money from the arms sales and these arms sales create a greater threat from their "enemies" to which the U.S. responds by giving even more aid to Israel.

And since they want to take such an active role in pouring gasoline on the Middle Eastern fire, let them fend for themselves from here on out. Looks like they don't need our BILLIONS in hard earned tax dollars with such financial side ventures to one of our most notorious enemies. Selling ANYTHING to Iran even remotely related to militarty use is a GROSS violation of our "relationship" with Israel. And knowing how the Iranians feel about the Jews goes to show what some people will do for a quick buck. Pretty disgusting.

I'm not trying to put words into any mouth but this is my take on the 'Israel Firster's' position. Israel does nothing wrong - ever. When Israel does something wrong see number one. (I thought only God (and maybe a prophet or two) was PERFECT ?? ---------------------------------------------- Then there seems to be some who reference the Bible as their reason for why Israel can do nothing wrong. Truly I don't understand this position. Can someone explain this line of thinking to me ?? ------------------------------------------------ Then there is this "Anti-Christ" chap that seems to crop up from time to time. Is this a reference to Sharon ??

Yes, bunkie, that is a very 'simple' answer indeed. Why not give it a little more thought? This company wasn't sharing its revenue with the Israeli government was it? So why would 'greed' drive Israeli officials to permit such a sale of contraband to occur in the first place? And Israel doesn't need any help in convincing the United States that Iran is a threat to peace anywhere in the region. So, it appears that [u]any[/u] basis you have for saying that the Israeli government was involved, is bogus! The simplest answer is almost always the best and correct answer - these Israeli citizens were, , crooks. That's it, that's all there is to the story.

While there have certainly been a few cases of traitorous war profiteering since the beginning of this intafada, I would actuall answer your question with Two names, Bill Clinton and Ehud Barak. You see Clinton convinced Barak that it might be a good idea for Israel to set up and support the Palestinian authority as a prelude to statehood. As you can see, they equipped, armed, trained and supplied their security forces. This with the understanding that they would get the terrorists under control. This of course led to betrayal, backstabbing and the current hostilities and resulted in Mr. Barak being replaced with Mr. Sharon.
