PMW, which monitors media in the Palestinian Authority for anti-Israel items, reports on what it calls "yet another wild accusation about Israel" in the PA press. "Two PA newspapers - one directly controlled by the office of PA President Mahmoud Abbas - are accusing Israel of releasing rats with supernatural qualities to chase away the Arab residents of Jerusalem," write PMW's Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook.
According to the PA papers, the Israeli-Jerusalem rat is:
1. Immune to rat poison
2. Aggressive and larger than usual
3. Unafraid of cats and able to scare them away
4. Highly fertile, with females giving birth to 140 young rats a year, four times the normal average
5. Highly selective, as Jewish residents of Jerusalem apparently are not affected by these rats.

Of all the genuine bad things Israel has done to the Palastinians you could report, they chose to make up this bat-shit insanity? WTF?

I think that broke my brain.

This type of conspiracy bullshit is par for the course in Palestine. I lived in Jerusalem for years, and I was regularly told the most outlandish conspiracy theories by Palestinian friends of mine. Everything from "Jews created Aids to depopulate Africa so they could force all the Palestinians to move to Ghana" to "Jews used LSD aerosol in the 6 day war to demoralize the Egyptian fighting forces"

"1. Immune to rat poison"
Nah, they just don't eat it because it's treyf.
"5. Highly selective, as Jewish residents of Jerusalem apparently are not affected by these rats."
Yeah, well, y'know the blood on the doorposts and lintel worked so well in Egypt...
Seriously, how do they know they are Israeli-sponsored rats? Do they wear tiny little kippot and tallitot?

Nah, they have little star of david painted on their backs... Oh, and they carry a tiny torah.
They are so cute :3

Holy fuck. This is the funniest thing I've read today!

Rats with supernatural qualities?

@#790017: That's what I was thinking.

So the Legion Of Doom lease their super-rats to Israel now?

This is a joke, right? No one could be this stupid.

There's a real bad horror movie in there. Rats can get quite large and are pack animals so "Unafraid of cats and able to scare them away" happens with every rat population surge.
Revealing palestinian propaganda there @israelnationalnews. Good thing Isael always takes care to never tell lies about them 'cough cough'
