IDF develops flying pigs to destroy 'Palestinian' agriculture
Leave it to the IDF
Israel’s efforts to drive Palestinian farmers off their lands
received a boost this week with the announcement that the army would
partner with local pig breeders to develop flying pigs for release in
Palestinian agricultural areas.
Palestinians have long accused Israel of releasing wild boars to
wreak havoc with Palestinian farms. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas
repeated the charge again several days ago, but as in the past, few
international bodies have given the matter much attention. Until now the
boar-release program has apparently been a private initiative, but to
capitalize on the apparent apathy of the international community, the
Israeli military entered into an arrangement with the country’s only
pig-farming enterprise to launch a breeding program aimed at producing
winged, flying swine capable of mobility and destruction that far
outstrips the achievements of the current available animals.
Kibbutz Lahav’s swine program has sparked controversy since its
inception, given the Jewish dietary ban on pork and the cultural
aversion to the animal. However, the army, which officially maintains
Jewish dietary laws in its facilities, nevertheless sought out the
program heads to develop this new kind of bio-weapon, which could be
deployed much more flexibly to destroy Palestinian farms and property
without directly implicating Jewish settlers.
And least you think this post was not written with tongue firmly planted in cheek....
A spokesman for the IDF declined to divulge the details of the
breeding program. “We’ll be intentionally harming Palestinian
agriculture when pigs fly,” he said.
