The governor of South Sinai has put his intellectual heft behind the theory that sharks involved in attacks off Sharm El-Sheik are controlled by Israel via GPS:
Speaking on the public TV program “Egypt Today” yesterday, a specialist introduced as “Captain Mustafa Ismail, a famous diver in Sharm El Sheikh,” said that the sharks involved in the attack are ocean sharks and do not live in Egypt’s waters.
When asked by the anchor how the shark entered Sharm El Sheikh waters, he burst out, “no, it’s who let them in?”
Urged to elaborate, Ismail said that he recently got a call from an Israeli diver in Eilat telling him that they captured a small shark with a GPS planted in its back, implying that the sharks were monitored to attack in Egypt’s waters only.
“Why would these sharks travel 4000 km and not have any accidents until they entered Sinai waters?” asked Ismail.
Earlier today, General Abdel-Fadeel Shosha, the governor of South Sinai, backed Ismail’s theory. In a phone call to the TV program, he said that it is possible that Israeli intelligence, Mossad, is behind the incidents and that they are doing it to undermine the Egyptian tourism industry. He added that Egypt needs time to investigate the theory.
Meanwhile, Assange has been arrested. And the cats are licking their paws, satisfied that everyone is utterly flummoxed.
That cat, by the way, has been neutered, so forget it, Sweden: Your phony rape charges will never stick.
