Iranian arms ship destroyed near Sudan
Its from the Jpost, and even they admit that they can not confirm it. Source was am official in Khartoum and published in the Egyptian weekly Al-Usbua. Reportedly it carried arms for Hamas.

5. Eh, I refuse to take these stories in which everybody plays cute seriously.
Nobody quite knows who did it, or how, or when, or anything about the vessel, or anything. It's rumor-mongering and catapulting the propaganda masquerading as news.

6. But the Arab street thrives on just that kind of stuff
Like I said, I am not supporting it as true as much as let others know what is being said...

7. So is there some reason I ought not say I think it's bullshit?
Am I going to offend the "Arab Street" or something?
