Jordanian Journalist: ‘Israel Sends Boars, Mice to Jordan in Order to Ruin the Agriculture’
Palestinian Jordanian columnist As’ad Al-‘Azouni, often flagged by media watchers for his anti-Semitic articles, claimed on website jo24.net that Israel sends mice and wild boars to Jordan and Egypt to engage in agriculture warfare.
MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, on Friday published a translation of Al-‘Azouni’s article, from March 25, and noted several other articles it had highlighted, including one, in May 2011, when he wrote that Jews and peace are antithetical and they are to blame for all wars, corruption, and plots in the world. That story was translated into English by MEMRI, which Al-‘Azouni then blamed for his dismissal from newspaper Al-Arab Al-Yawm.
Al-‘Azouni wrote, “Since the signing of the Wadi Araba Treaty [Israeli-Jordanian Peace Treaty] in October 1994 and the official end of hostilities between Israel and Jordan, it has launched a new front against us. It replaced the jets with wild boars and white mice in order to sabotage Jordanian agriculture, and ultimately the Jordanian economy.”
“After the signing of the Camp David Accords, and after [Israel] became able to eliminate Egypt politically, [it] began taking action to eliminate it economically [as well]. The main weapon used for this purpose was white mice. After extensive investigation and research it became apparent that the relevant Israeli authorities had bred the white mice, starved them for three days, and then, at midnight, unloaded them from trucks on the Egyptian border so they would act like locusts – eating the crops, devastating Egypt and wrecking its economy.”
“Yousef Wali, minister of agriculture under Sadat, [collaborated with Israel and] made a pact with the white mice, and this dealt a harsh blow to the Egyptian economy. Egyptian agriculture was ruined: light agriculture, tomatoes, bees, and cotton. Naturally, this happened… because Wali imported barren seeds and bee larvae from Israel in order to ruin the Egyptian economy.”
“As for the West Bank – reports from there [based on] testimony indicate that Israel rears wild boars on special farms, starves them, and releases them at night in the West Bank – especially agricultural areas – in order to damage Palestinian crops. [These boars] have made a pact with the human pigs – the herds of Jewish settlers, who wreak havoc in West Bank fields and ruin them, uprooting trees and burning them, especially olive trees.”
“According to epidemiologists, the Israeli wild boars and white mice have another devastating mission, which is part of the foundations of the Talmud and Torah, one of whose texts states: Send a disease to your neighbor – meaning here a non-Jewish neighbor — since it is forbidden to do damage to a Jew, but harming and striking a non-Jew is permissible.”
“[The Israelis] do not want to rip up the peace accords and agreements they have signed with some of the Arabs since they do not need peace with the Arabs to begin with. Israel is armed with nuclear weapons, some of which it has distributed in the Upper Nile to harm Egypt and endanger its water source, and therefore it authorized their wild boars and white mice to do the job.”
In May 2012, Al-‘Azouni claimed that the Talmud is the source of Jewish enmity towards Christianity and Christians; in October 2012 he wrote that the Jews signed a deal with Hitler to establish a country in Palestine, and in April 2013 he accused the Jews of being behind the Boston Marathon bombing and the attacks of September 11, 2001.
