The Iran Slip-By or, "Walk All Over You"


Israeli leaders maintained a tense silence on Tuesday over reports that two Iranian Navy ships had passed through the Suez Canal and entered the Mediterranean en route to Syria, a move described by officials here as a provocation.

An Israeli government official said Tuesday that the development constituted a “new footprint in the region” for Iran. He added that given the Iranian-backed presence to Israel’s north, in the form of Hezbollah in Lebanon, and to the south, with Hamas in Gaza, the episode is of great concern to Israel.

And that 'foot' was stepping all over Israel.
