This story is an example of the Demonic Convergence in action: nuclear weapons, the Iranian effort to destroy Israel, Chinese complicity in international terrorism, and the Somali pirates, all rolled into one.
Remember the Iranian ship that was hijacked off the coast of Somalia a few weeks ago?
Pirates who came into contact with the unidentified cargo of the ship became seriously ill, and since then sixteen of them have died of what appears to be radiation poisoning.
Now an account of what happened has been patched together: the Iranian ship was loaded with radioactive sand from China,
and was en route to the Suez Canal and then the Mediterranean.
The goal was to blow it up off the coast of Israel and send a lethal radioactive cloud over the Jewish state during Yom Kippur.
Had it not been for the Somali free-lancers, there’s no telling what might have happened.
