Israeli warships cross Suez Canal

Arab media reported that two Israeli warships crossed the Suez Canal on their way to the Red Sea this weekend.
Two Israeli missile ships crossed the Suez Canal on their way to the Red Sea, weekend reports in Arab media said. The reports said that Egyptian authorities held up other sea traffic in order to allow the Israeli ships to pass through.

If correct, this would be the first time that Egypt stopped other canal traffic in order to enable Israeli ships to pass through with full security, Israeli officials said. However, the officials said, this was not the first time Egypt had allowed Israeli weapons ships to pass through the canal.
No, it's not the first time.

But you have to wonder whether the destination is really the Red Sea or somewhere a little further afield.

The Red Sea would be perfect for launching an EMP missile strike against Iran. If Israel decided to do so, it could paralyze Iran's infrastructure without the need to bomb Iranian installations and not be sure it destroyed all of them. An EMP strike eliminates that consideration. And you can bet the Israeli naval vessels are not there for sightseeing.

EMP or nuclear strike on Iran, anything else will be too little, too late
