Khaled Abu Toameh on Zionist rats, sharks, AIDS and wild boars

This is an article by the renowned Israeli journalist Khaled Abu Toameh. It appeared in my inbox this morning and I wanted to share it. Toameh highlights the absurdity of the accusations against Jews in the Arab world, often taken as gospel by the uneducated, illiterate masses (and, of course, Jenny Tonge). Enjoy.

What is Responsible for Miseries of the Arabs?

It seems that even the animals have now turned against Arabs.

The Western-funded Palestinian Authority in the West Bank have been using animals in its campaign against Israel. About two years ago, Mahmoud Abbas's official news agency, Wafa, reported that Israel had released poison-resistant rats to drive Arab residents of Jerusalem out of their homes.

The report said that "Rats have become an Israeli weapon to displace and expel Arab residents of the occupied Old City of Jerusalem. Settlers flood the Old City of Jerusalem with rats."

It is not clear how these rats were taught to stay away from Jews, who also happen to live in the Old City.

Such allegations reflect a sick mindset and are part of a long-standing tradition of blaming Israel and Jews for almost everything that goes wrong in Arab countries and the rest of the world.

The ultimate goal, of course, is to demonize Jews and de-legitimize Israel. This is the kind of incitement that prompts radical Muslims to wear explosive belts and set out on suicide missions against Jews.

To Western audiences, such charges may sound ridiculous and comical*. But as far as many Arabs are concerned, the charges, which do not come as a surprise, are not funny.

In fact, the Arab masses have become accustomed to hearing such idiotic allegations from their governments and leaders, especially when they are directed against Israel and Jews. What is worrying that these rumors often find their way to mainstream thinking in the Arab world.

After the rats and wild boars -- which the Palestinians also claimed were used by Israel to drive them out of their homes and lands -- now the sharks have been recruited to destroy Egypt's tourism industry.

Egyptian authorities say they do not rule out the possibility that Mossad was behind a recent shark attack that killed a tourist in the Red Sea resort of Sharm a-Sheikh.

According to South Sinai Governor Mohammed Abdel Fadi Shousha, "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 to confirm."

This was not the first time that Egyptians have made such stupid and dangerous charges. The Egyptians have already blamed Israel for spreading AIDS and other diseases in the Arab world. Moreover, they had accused Israel of flooding Egyptian markets with chewing gum that arouses women sexually with the intention of corrupting them morally.

The Palestinian Authority has also repeatedly accused Israel of using wild boars to destroy Arab crops in the West Bank and drive farmers out of their lands.

In light of these allegations, it remains to be seen whether Arabs and Muslims will now declare jihad on sharks, rats and pigs.

I was called fat once, and I'm 5'5" and 8.5 stone, and I didn't bother to respond, however I've not yet been accused of releasing resistant rats in East Jerusalem.

Good for Muslims, Armchair. Last time I checked, the emirs were treated in the US for complications of obesity...
