Jumping the Shark and the Vulture

There are many things that Mossad can do, but I’ll bet you dollars to a knob of goat-poo that training sharks and vultures to be spies isn’t one of them. That of course doesn’t stop the madder elements of the Arab world claiming this of course. Next thing it will be Bomber posting about Israeli spy vultures.

Saudi Arabian security services have captured a vulture that is suspected of being a Mossad spy sent over by Israel to gather information about the country.

The large bird, which was carrying a GPS transmitter and a tag bearing the identification code R65 from Tel Aviv University, strayed into rural Saudi Arabian territory at some point last week, according to a report in the Israeli daily Ma’ariv.

Residents and local reporters told Saudi Arabia’s Al-Weeam newspaper that the matter seemed to be linked to a “Zionist plot” and swiftly alerted security services. The bird has since been placed under arrest.

The accusations went viral, according to the Israeli Ha’aretz newspaper, with hundreds of posts on Arabic-language websites and forums claiming that the “Zionists” had trained the birds for espionage.

The incident comes amid growing paranoia among Israel’s neighbours over the nation’s growing military might.

Several weeks ago an Egyptian official reportedly claimed that a shark that attacked tourists off the coastal resort of Sharm el Sheikh was also acting on behalf of the Israeli spy service.

Oh please…spy sharks and spy vultures…if the Israelis want to roll over their enemies they can just use Merkava tanks…Mossad are good but they aren’t so good they are now recruiting sharks and vultures.
