Intercepted Arms for Hamas

I posted last week about the shipload of Iranian weapons that was intercepted by the Israeli Defense Forces en route to Hamas in Gaza.

Below is an IDF report about the boarding of the ship and the discovery of its cargo:

More videos are available at the IDF’s YouTube channel.

That's a shame, the Palestinians deserve weapons with which to defend their homeland.

I don't seem to recall Jordan lacking in any defensive capability. Then again, I'm fairly confident that you define Israel as the homeland of those poor beleaguered "Palestinians".

Here's a quote for you:

As candidly stated by Zahir Muhsein, then head of the P.L.O. Military Department and a member of its Executive Committee:

"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the State of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality, Today, there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak, Today, about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct Palestinian people to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan -- which is a sovereign state with defined borders -- cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa. While, as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beersheba and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."
