Alleged Israeli vulture spy ruled Zionist plot by Saudis

While it may sound like something straight out of the Adam Sandler comedy movie “You Don’t Mess With the Zohan,” the Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz News states that Saudi Arabia is crying Zionist plot over an alleged vulture spy. Reportedly tagged for scientific research by Tel-Aviv University, the Israeli vulture spy accidentally flew into rural Saudi Arabian territory. The bird was summarily incarcerated on suspicion of being a Mossad spy.

The Israeli vulture spy carried a transmitter

Like many animals studied by scientists, the Israeli vulture spy was being observed in order to glean information regarding migratory patterns. The vulture “spy” was wearing a leg bracelet identifying Tel-Aviv University and a transmitter that allows scientists to track its movements.

While it seems clear that the markings on the alleged Mossad spy clearly identified it as a mere subject of scientific study, residents of the rural town in Saudi Arabia where the nefarious Israeli vulture spy was spotted reportedly told local Al-Weeam newspaper that it smelled of a “Zionist plot.”

At that point, it became inevitable that the Israeli vulture spy story would go viral on Arabic-language websites.

At least the shark wasn’t firing frickin’ laser beams

The Zionist vulture spy isn’t the first time that anti-Israel officials have insinuated that Mossad has used animals to do its dirty work. Last month, a regional Arab governor named Abdel Fadil Shousha spoke out after a shark attack that killed and maimed tourists at a Red Sea port. The suspicion was that the shark was intentionally released – and perhaps trained – by Mossad or similar Israeli agents to sabotage the Arabic region’s tourist industry.

“What is being said about the Mossad throwing the deadly shark in the sea to hit tourism in Egypt is not out of the question. But it needs time to confirm,” said Fadil Shousha to Britain’s Sun newspaper.

Spying on Animal Farm

Animal espionage is admittedly far-fetched, far from the kind of spying for which Jonathan Pollard or Larry Franklin were convicted in the U.S. Yes, Israel has been caught spying on the U.S. Check out the website What Really Happened for more information, and draw your own conclusions. No Mossad vulture spies were harmed during the production of the report.
