Sharm al-Sheikh has been hit by a spate of gruesome shark attacks, with one person killed. Authorities have been scrambling to reassure tourists that the issue is under control. But the shark is still on the loose, prompting some Egyptian officials to accuse outside forces of sabotaging the country’s booming tourism industry.Okay, the over-the-top Muslim rhetoric alarms are going off and the lights are flashing. But then again, sharks have been known to frequent the centuries old ocean routes of slave ships, no? It seems like a good meal goes right down the throat and straight into GPS-enabled shark DNA. But somehow the evil Jooos have found a way to weaponize the sharks' capacity to eat fish, humans, hubcaps, license plates and just about anything else they can stuff into their many-toothed maw.
In an interview with a TV talk show Monday, the governor of South Sinai, Mohammad Abdul Fadhil Shousha, came up with this gem: “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.”Brilliant, simply brilliant.
