The ghost ship, Mary Celeste, was seen drifting off of the Gaza coast and the Israeli's immediately sent their naval forces out to deal with the intruder.
After observing the ship and believing it was another bunch of do-gooding Turks, Palestinians and Green (very green) Peace activists attempting to breach their blockade, red alarm was signalled and a fleet of power boats and helicopters surrounded the Mary Celeste.
Special SAS Israeli marines boarded the boat firing at anything that moved (not a lot) and they haven't been seen since!
In fact the Mary Celeste disappeared in the Mediterranean mist with the crockery and wine goblets still untouched and a few Israeli marines reported missing???
An Israeli press spokesman, Ebineezer Abraham-Hornblower, in an attempt to cover up the shambles gave the following statement:
"We, mighty Israel attacked a strange boat, it was definitely flying a Palestinian flag, although it was very misty, we attacked the Arab infidels and lost 50 marines in the ensuing conflict, Hamas is too blame for the incident and Khomeni was certainly involved too, we had no choice!"
"Bollocks" countered an Aljazeera Int. reporter!
A ghostly ship was last seen heading for the Shatt al Arab flying an Al Qaeda flag with skeletons on board dressed in Israeli uniforms and the sounds of their chains could be heard in neighbouring Iraq, but nobody was stupid enough to attack it!
Stranger things have happened at sea!
