Saudi Arabia ‘detains’ Israeli vulture for spying

The griffon vulture was carrying a GPS transmitter bearing the name of Tel Aviv University, prompting rumours it was part of a Zionist plot.

Israeli wildlife officials dismissed the claims as ludicrous and expressed concern about the bird’s fate.

Last month, Egyptian officials implied the Israeli spy agency Mossad was to blame for shark attacks off its coast.

The vulture, which can have a wing span of up to 265cm (8ft 8in), was caught after it landed in the desert city of Hyaal a few days ago.

When locals discovered the GPS transmitter, they suspected the worst and handed it over to the security forces, said Israel’s Ma’ariv newspaper.

“The device does nothing more than receive and store basic data about the bird’s whereabouts, and about his altitude and speed,” a bird specialist at Israel’s Park and Nature Authority told the newspaper.

Right! And our cell phones cannot be spied on by Government agencies even when not in use!

Conspiracy theories quickly began circulating in Saudi newspapers and on websites that the bird was involved in espionage.

‘Terrible price’

Israeli officials told Ma’ariv they were “stunned” by the allegations and concerned that the bird could meet a horrible punishment in the notoriously severe Saudi justice system.

Now that’s a first: Israelis are concerned more about Vultures than they are about human lives! This explains why Israel continues to commit atrocities against Palestinians and think nothing of it. Ethnic cleansing, children held in Israel’s prisons, families prevented from visiting, checkpoints and the dehumanization of Palestinians must be an acceptable practice in Israel’s equally – if not more, notoriously inhumane ” justice” system!

 

The data would be used to improve understanding of the endangered species’ behaviour.

“Now, this poor bird is paying a terrible price. That’s very sad,” said the unnamed expert.

“I hope they release the poor thing.”

I hope your heart starts beating!

  1. […] Israel refuses to allow inspections or sign the NPT which safeguards the sale of nuclear material. Is it safe to allow Israel to disregard UN laws especially after the Gaza Flotilla Massacre where they murdered humanitarian peace activists and the United States turns a blind eye? While Israel is one of the loudest voices calling for a tougher line on Iran’s nuclear programme, its own nuclear capability has never been put to inspection. Israel has two nuclear research centres – at Dimona and Soreq. The latest estimates suggest that Israel has produced at least 118 warheads with weapons grade plutonium. The Jericho ballistic missiles are capable of carrying such weapons. The Jericho One, which is now obsolete, had a range of 500 kilometres, and could carry a 20 kiloton nuclear warhead – 20 times more powerful than the US bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945. The Jericho Two has a range of 1500 kilometres. It could just reach Iran – and is believed to be able to carry a one megaton nuclear bomb, which is 1000 times more powerful than the Hiroshima bomb. It is believed a Jericho Three missile is now being developed – that will be able to travel around 5000 kilometres, bringing all of Iran and Europe into its range.
