He added that sending the warships was "a provocation that proves Iran's nerve and self-esteem is growing from day to day". Lieberman called on the international community "to understand that Israel cannot ignore these provocations forever".

I have it from Israeli sources that both vessels have approval to transit Suez and will start doing so in only a couple of hours from now!

The passage is "something which has not happened in many years," Lieberman said.

"This happens after the Iranian president's visit to south Lebanon and his aggressive declarations there towards Israel."

It was not immediately clear why the ships were seeking to train in the Mediterranean, which would be in the neighourhood of arch-enemy Israel and of Syria, an ally of Iran, and Lebanon, where Iranian ally Hezbollah is powerful.

It was also not known when Iranian navy ships last passed through the Suez Canal, a crucial commercial and strategic link between Europe and the Middle East and Asia.

"Tonight, two Iranian warships are meant to pass through the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean Sea and reach Syria, something that has not happened in many years," Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a Jerusalem speech distributed by his office.

"To my regret, the international community is not showing readiness to deal with the recurring Iranian provocations. The international community must understand that Israel cannot forever ignore these provocations." - Reuters

Israel has a plan and knows how to deal with this - senior IDF official who requested anonymity

Israeli Intelligence believes the ships are trafficking arms for Yemen and Hezbollah

Lieberman: Iran warships destined for Syria to sail through Suez The foreign minister criticizes the international community for not dealing with 'recurring Iranian provocations'; Iran has been accused of supplying weapons to Syria and Hezbollah.

I thought you meant Senator Joe Lieberman, and was preparing some insults (for him, not you.)

Glad I read further.

Oh ----. (can I say that? There really is no other word)

I guess the Machiavellians amongst us could have called this sooner or later. Iran is just nutz to do this at this moment, and the Israeli's are more nutz to take the bait. Both these regimes need to be dismantled by their people and have some reason and sanity restored.

Absolutely no idea what so ever how this particular imbroglio will turn out.

latest from the canal authority

"The Suez Canal authority allows all ships of any nationality to cross as long as the country is not in a state war with Egypt," the Authority said in a statement, noting "it would be the first time Iranian warships have used the Suez Canal since 1979."
