Wild Pigs Fly Into West Bank, Says Palestinian News Agency

HEAR that?

That’s the voice of the Palestinian Authority’s official news agency Wafa.

Hear that?

That’s the sound of rats Wafa says Israel is using to force Arab families out of their homes in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Hear that?

That’s the sound of the wild pigs Israelis are using to drive Palestinians out of their homes and fields in the West Bank.

Says the report:

“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.” The report continued: “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.”

Jerusalem Municipality spokesman Gidi Schmerling report says the news is “pure fiction,” and had no connection to reality.

But these rats are trained to live in only one part of the city and not go into the Israeli bits.

In any case, who needs rats when you already have the mice…?
