I was heartened by the complete lack of reporting by Al Jazeera et al of the "Jews Caused the Indian Ocean Tsunami" meme. Perhaps they're still trying to figure out how they did it. But perhaps even they have limits.Nope.
From the Jerusalem Post :
The earthquake that struck the Indian Ocean on December 26, triggering a series of huge waves called tsunami, "was possibly" caused by an Indian nuclear experiment in which "Israeli and American nuclear experts participated," an Egyptian weekly magazine reported Thursday.Well of course. I mean, exterminating mankind has to be high on their Zionist list of "things to do today".
According to Al-Osboa', India, in its heated nuclear race with Pakistan, has lately received sophisticated nuclear know-how from the United States and Israel, both of which "showed readiness to cooperate with India in experiments to exterminate humankind."
Since 1992, the magazine argued, leading geological centers in Britain, Turkey and other countries, warned of the need "not to hold nuclear experiments in the region of the Indian Ocean known as 'the Fire Belt,' in which the epicenter of the earthquake lies.Funny, you think we in Canberra might have heard about that. Not the nuclear tests (though I think we would have heard about those too, the ANU monitoring station down the road is pretty good at this type of thing), the drastic displacement north a few thousand kilometres that put central Australia in the "Ring of Fire". Oh well, on with the motley.
Geologists labeled that region 'The Fire Belt' for being "a dangerous terrain that can move at anytime, without human intervention," Al-Osboa' wrote.
Despite warnings not to carry out nuclear experiments in and around the 'Fire Belt', "Israel and India continue to conduct nuclear tests in the Indian Ocean, and the United States has recently decided to carry out similar tests in the Australian deserts, which is included in the 'Fire Belt', the Egyptian weekly magazine wrote.
"Last year only, Arab and Islamic states have asked the United States to stop its nuclear activities in that region, and to urge Israel and India to follow suite," Al-Osboa' reported.How... objective of them.
Although Al-Osboa' does not rule out the possibility that the tsunami could have been caused by a natural earthquake
... it speculates however that, "while it has not been proved yet, there has been a joint Israeli-Indian secret nuclear experiment [conducted on December 26] that caused the earthquake."The first of many such articles, I suspect. This, like the equally mythical "Jenin Massacre" will probably be The Canonical And Revealed Truth for Hamas within the year, and the radical Left within a few years after that. And quoted as fact in SMH op-eds soon thereafter. *Sigh*
The Egyptian weekly magazine concludes in its report that "the exchange of nuclear experts between Israel and India, and US pressure on Pakistan which is exerted by supplying India with state-of-the-art nuclear technology and preventing Islamabad from cooperating with Asian and Islamic states in the nuclear field, pose a big question mark on the causes behind the violent Asian earthquake."
The current poll results show the pedestrian and rational "Plate Tectonics" still holding a handy lead over the nearest rival, "Karl Rove", with "Bush not signing Kyoto" and "HAARP tests" a distant equal third. Must be my readership, I suppose.
