Saudi Arabia arrests Israeli vulture for espionage

Zionist vultures!

Some of these stories require a lot of effort to not just parody the living hell out of them. Like this latest bit of idiocy out of animal-fearing Saudi Arabia:

Saudi Arabian officials have reportedly arrested a vulture suspected of being a Mossad spy, after the bird, tagged by Israeli scientists, flew into Saudi territory today.

Haaretz reports:

The bird was found in a rural area of the country wearing a transmitter and a leg bracelet bearing the words "Tel Aviv University", according to the reports, which surfaced first in the Israeli daily Ma'ariv.

But, according to Haaretz, "residents and local reporters told Saudi Arabia's Al-Weeam newspaper that the matter seemed to be a 'Zionist plot.'"

Taking into account their recent “Zionist sharks!” nonsense, one must wonder if they haven’t all been standing in the desert sun a little too long over there.
