Arab "experts": Weapons ship a Zionist conspiracy!

You just knew this was coming....

Islam Online (Arabic only) discusses Israel's seizure of the weapons ship:

Military experts have questioned the validity Israel's declaration on Wednesday that they intercepted a ship loaded with the "huge" shipment of weapons that was heading from Iran to Hezbollah, adding that if it is true then the actions of the Israeli navy is "piracy".

In separate comments for "Islam Online.Net" the experts emphasized that the occupation is trying to "divert attention from the report of the Goldstone and the Israeli position that refuses to stop the settlements," referring to the declaration that this is not the first of its kind, though differing in details.
Meanwhile, a Syrian official denies everything:

In Tehran, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem dismissed Israeli allegations the ship carried arms.

"Unfortunately, some official pirates in the seas, sometimes in the name of the navy, sometimes in the name of inspection, obstruct trade movement between Syria and Iran," al-Moallem said a joint news conference with his Iranian counterpart.

"This ship does not carry Iranian weapons to Syria and does not contain military material to manufacture weapons in Syria. This ship carries imported goods from Syria to Iran," al-Moallem added. His comments in Arabic were carried by Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV station and other Lebanese stations.

I guess this video is all part of the conspiracy. I mean, we do own Hollywood.
