Israel engages in yet another act of high-seas piracy

The BBC is reporting that Israel seized a ship which had left Turkey and was bound for Egypt under the pretext that it was carrying arms "destined to Gaza". The ship was seized some 200 miles (320km) from shore, i.e. in international waters.  The pirated ship has been taken to the Israeli port of Ashdod.

But we already knew that international law does not apply to the "only democracy in the Middle-East" aka the "Jewish state of Israel".
