Mossad's Most Outrageous Plots

Spend enough time getting your news from the Middle East, and you, too, might conclude there’s no dark deed, no far-fetched plot, that’s too complicated or bizarre for the Mossad.

Arab governments and pundits have focused recently on the Mossad’s dark dealings in the animal world, “arresting” an allegedly Zionist vulture in Saudi Arabia, and suggesting Israel might be behind a series of shark attacks off the Sinai Peninsula. (Really! These accusations have really been made.)

To help readers stay abreast of new developments, Foreign Policy’s “The List” blog has helpfully catalogued recent accusations of Mossad malevolence, ranging from the vulture incident to a Turkish newspaper’s suggestion of a Zionist plot behind a heavy-metal concert in Istanbul.

Now that the Mossad’s use of animals and heavy metal have been revealed, one can only wonder what new tools the agency will use next. Invisible unicorns in Iran? Zionist leprechauns in Beirut? Stay tuned.
