I can't believe how utterly backward some places on Earth are.

Quote:Israeli officials told Ma'ariv they were "stunned" by the allegations and concerned that the bird could meet a horrible punishment in the notoriously severe Saudi justice system.

Backward? that's maybe what they want you to believe, as well as all the other propaganda they feed their citizens, all aimed to suit their own needs!

Create a problem, find a solution, and deal out a harsh punishment if necessary, in the eyes of the people you could be classified as a great leader for being first in identifying the threat, dealing with it and keeping them safe.
Kind of reminds me about the greatest country on earth, it's leader & poodle had a similar strategy Wink they would of got away with it, but not all their people suffered from such extremes of gullibility as they do in more radicalised societies.

Without the time or inclination to understand any situation its often a quick win strategy to be angry and appalled at "it" and then deal with it roughly as said above.
The law based on thought out common sense and society's values is a better way to make judgements on all issues.
That said, Laws that get hijacked for political or power fulfilling aims, rather than the good of the people, weaken society and trust.

Even as early as the first world war (possibly earlier) the British used homing pigeons to carry messages back from the front. Maybe the Israelis have just taken it a little further. Smile

Quote:The vulture is the latest animal to be accused of being an unwitting Mossad operative.

In December, the governor of Egypt's South Sinai province, Mohamed Abdul Fadil Shousha, suggested the spy agency may have had a hand in a string of deadly shark attacks off the coast of the Sharm el-Sheikh resort.

He said it was "not out of the question" that Mossad had put the killer shark in the area.
