    Iranian aid ships head for Gaza

    TEHRAN - Iran is sending aid ships to blockaded Gaza, state radio said on Monday -- a move likely to be considered provocative by Israel which accuses Tehran of arming the Palestinian enclave's Islamist rulers, Hamas.

    One ship left port on Sunday and another will depart by Friday, loaded with food, construction material and toys, the report said. "Until the end of (Israel's) Gaza blockade, Iran will continue to ship aid," said an official at Iran's Society for the Defense of the Palestinian Nation.

    Iran has sent aid to the coastal territory in the past via Egypt. It was not immediately clear if the latest shipments would do the same, or try to dock in Gaza itself.

    Very interesting. Akin to one of those probe missiles The Enterprise used to fire in Star Trek.

    that's not what the Israelis are saying.

    The navy will operate under the assumption that groups of provocateurs are aboard any future ships that try to break the Israel-imposed sea blockade on the Gaza Strip, " said Deputy Commander of the Navy Rear-Admiral Rani Ben-Yehuda.

    besides Egypt is not going to let through the Suez canal anyway, so they should at least manage to be able to get down to Durban in time to watch a World Cup soccer match or two.
