... mystery surrounding the hijacking of a Russian freighter in July has taken a new twist with reports claiming the pirates were acting in league with the Israeli Mossad secret service in order to halt a shipment of modern weapon systems hidden on board and destined for Iran.

...The Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta reported over the weekend that the vessel Arctic Sea had been carrying x-55 cruise missiles and S300 anti-aircraft rockets hidden in secret compartments among its cargo of timber and sawdust.

If they had they would have sunk it. It would have disappeared forever.

This story does not make a lot of sense to me. Why not ship the missles via the Caspian Sea, or by air?

Not neccessarily. Just dump the junk overboard and problem solved in this case while everyone else is focused elsewhere.

This kind of tact could have several beneficial spinoffs in that it would focus on the story of it missing and eventually someone would talk from the crew (if they weren’t killed by the Russians) that could expose the real mission. This news would make for a very tough thing for the Rusklies to deal with.

It might also explain the sudden story about Russia pulling back on its agreement to arm the Mullahs with the advanced anti-aircraft missle systems.

Maybe specifically to obfuscate and hide the traces. But I guess you have a valid point. The “Mossad story” seems quite speculative and thin on evidence.

I could deal if she was the face and body of Mossad. In all seriousness though, Go Mossad Go! I wish our intelligence agencies would play hardball like Mossad. It seems like they used to.

Anything's possible. There were Jewish pirates, ignoring the rumors about Lafite and a few other prominent names (everyone looks for Jewish ancestors, before long Obama will be Jewish). Samuel Palache comes to mind, Abraham and Moses Henriques, though they were more prominent arms dealers. That Israel would do this, deliberately cover up evidence of Russia shipping arms to Iran, why? Why, on the "cover up".

Thanks for the assessment -

perhaps more information will surface in coming weeks -

...recall how long it took for all the news to leak out about IAFs strike on Syrian nuclear site - and even how much longer it took to reveal the actual target struck

Were the crew members drained of blood? If so, Israel is behind it. But seriously. Who knows? I tend to disbelieve articles that start with a statement of fact couched as a question.
