Sharks working for Mossad, Egypt claims

Conspiracy theories are always popular in the Middle East, observes the BBC in a report noting that Israel has rejected claims by Mohamed Abdul Fadil Shousha, the South Sinai governor, that Israeli Mossad agents where behind the series of shark attacks off the coast of Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

It is possible that Mr Shousha’s staff stumbled up on this website and believed they’d found the smoking gun.

Of course there is no shortage of pointless theorising about what ’causes’ this extremely rare event – an event most sensible people put down to “shit happens” and the inevitable consequence of tens of millions of humans enjoying the water annually in an environment shared with untamed wild creatures.

Only about 40 people a year are killed by sharks. To put that in perspective, over 40,000 people are killed in car crashes in the United States in the same period.

Back in Egypt, eight thousand people will die in car crashes in the next year. How many of these deaths will be blamed on the Jews?

Gene adds: Zionist sharks (along with Zionist octopi) were a popular motif in Arab-media cartoons after the Gaza flotilla clash.
