Is Dr. Doolittle Working with Mossad?

It has become increasingly apparent to Arab and Persian governments that the animal world is turning against them, perhaps through programs initiated by the forces of Zionism.

In recent news, numerous shark attacks near Sharm el-Sheikh, on the banks of the Red Sea, have been viewed as a possible sign that Israel’s Mossad is using the deadly fish as a biological weapon, a means of harming Egypt’s tourist trade. According to South Sinai Governor Mohamed Abdel Fadil Shousha, as reported by Reuters, “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.” While other possible explanations for these attacks are also being investigated, history shows good cause for Egypt’s government to suspect the hand of Israel’s intelligence service in these attacks.

In 2008, Dr. Hasan Khater, secretary-general of the Islamic-Christian Front in Jerusalem, released a report indicating Israel was using poison-resistant rats to drive Arab residents of Jerusalem from their homes. Published by the Palestinian Authority official newspaper, Wafa, as well as other Palestinian media, the report cites unidentified Arab residents who stated they had tried various poisons on the rats without success.

From an article by Khaled Abu Toameh in the Jerusalem Post,

"Rats have become an Israeli weapon to displace and expel Arab residents of the occupied Old City of Jerusalem," Wafa reported under the title, "Settlers flood the Old City of Jerusalem with rats."


Over the past two months, dozens of settlers come to the alleyways and streets of the Old City carrying iron cages full of rats. They release the rats, which find shelter in open sewage systems.

It is unclear how the rats were engineered to resist the poison, or trained to distinguish between the Arab and non-Arab residents of Jerusalem, but given the mounting suspicion of Israel’s use of animals against her enemies, these issues are merely inconsequential details.

In June of 2009, the Israelis were once again up to their animal tricks, as noted by Palestinian Authority media outlets, who accused them of using wild boars in an engineered attack to destroy Arab crops in Samaria. These claims were supported by the head of the regional PA farmers' union and officers of the PA armed forces. The Israelis have countered that they are unable to adequately cull the wild boar population in Arab villages in Samaria, which are under the complete control of the Palestinian Authority, but this is clearly an attempt to shift the blame for what Arabs see as malicious and deliberate actions against them.

But it is not just Arabs who have fallen victim to the Zionist tactic of turning nature against Israel’s enemies. Iran has also been a target.

In 2007, Iranian intelligence services arrested fourteen squirrels who were suspected of conducting espionage within Iran’s borders.  According to the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), the rodents were carrying spy gear of Western manufacture (including cameras, GPS equipment and listening devices). They were trained in espionage techniques and were believed to have been sent by Israel. The rodent infiltrators were stopped before they could act against the Iranian regime, thanks to the alertness of Iran’s crack security forces.
