When Israel attributes an operation to Iran, such as the assassination attempts against Israeli diplomats last year in response to the al- leged Israeli assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists, the Iranians "don't take responsi- bility," Savyon said, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister HosseinAmirAbdol- lahian, reacting to the IDF's interception of the ship, told the Iranian Fats NewsAgency March 6 that the West, in blaming Iran for the incident, intended to create an internal schism in Iran by cultivating an atmosphere against Ira- nian security forces, depicting those armed forces as worthy of blame for any new congres- sional sanctions against Iran. Israel and the U.S. want to step up Western military, security, and political action against Syria and to link any intensification of action against Syria to Russia, in order to pressure Russia over the crisis in Ukraine, Abdol- lahian added. Middle East media reports, meanwhile, reveal that Iran's supplying of weapons to Pal- estinian terror groups such as Islamic Jihad is an open secret. Islamic Jihad leader Ramadhan Abdallah Shalah admitted to Al Jazeera in 2012 that "the weapons that are fighting the Israeli aggression and arrogance in Palestine come mainly from Iran, as the entire world knows." "This is no secret. These are either Iranian weapons or weapons financed by Iran," said Shalah. The seizure of the missiles destined for Gaza may also signal a return to closer rela- tions between Hamas and its Shi'a Muslim patrons, Iran and Syria. For years, Iran and Syria were Hamas's main patrons, providing the terror group IDF Spokesperson/Flash90 Pictured after being seized by the Israeli Navy on March 5 is the Klos C, an Iranian ship full of Syrian-made missiles bound for Palestinian terrorist groups in Gaza. with financing, training, ries about itself," Marcus told Berman isn't convinced and weapons to attack Israel. the massive arms seizure But when protests broke out "Now [Palestinian• media will play a huge role in the against Syrian President outlets] have the dilemma, nuclear talks.
