Did Mossad hijack the Arctic Sea?

This is interesting
and thanks John for the 'heads up'!

Op-ed hints Mossad snatched Russian ship



or

Did Mossad hijack Russian ship to stop Iran arms shipment?

While Mossad may or may not have hijacked the ship, the shipment of arms to Iran may be a stretch.

Why?
1- There are easier and more direct ways to ship munitions to Iran.
2- I am unsure if Russia using it's military in the case of piracy is abnormal?

Military ships are used regularly in the waters off Somalia to deal with piracy
Canada had the HMSC Winnipeg busy keeping pirates at bay near Somalia-
Canadian military at work on pirate detector- and they were not alone. Other countries had military ships in the area, including the US and China.

  2. Hi Penny,

    The story becomes more compelling (and important) over time. You brought it to my attention a long time before it appeared in the local papers.

    As for Nina Simone, I reckon if you could get the Universal Masters Collection CD: "Classic Nina Simone" (2003, made in the EU) compilation that would be a very good purchase. Lots of wonderful songs, e.g., Feeling Good, Sinnerman, Strange FRuit, Brown Eyed Handsome Man, and 11 others. The serial number is 0602498093696.
