It first appeared on Yediot Achronot, the claim that Syrian newspaper Al-Thawra had printed an article that claimed that Jews were behind bird flu, and that the virus was specifically designed to target Arabs… And now it seems the
flu sham has reached racist right-wing fascist Arutz Sheva. My calls to the Yediot Achronot editors to back up their claim by posting a link to the article that allegedly appeared on Al-Thawra or scanning an image of the newspaper went unheeded.
I am not surprised at all at the speed by which such sham / unsubstantiated stories are taken up by neo-cons and extremists (but I repeat myself) to “prove” the paranoia, stupidity, and anti-Semitism of “the Arabs”. They waste countless hours taking the issue all the way back to the Holocaust and how that guy the Mufti shook hands with Hitler, but when asked to present proof that the newspaper indeed posted/printed such an outrageous claim, they resort to fallacies and start throwing accusations left and right about how you are covering up on and justifying such an action by Arab tyrants.
At least Yediot Achronot got the name of the newspaper right (it’s Al-Thawra, not Al-Tura as spelled by Arutz Sheva).
Busted or busted. Take your pick.
