Saudi Arabia: Israeli melons infected with AIDS

Only in the Neanderthal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia would anyone take this seriously:
"Beware of Israeli melons infected with AIDS arriving in Saudi Arabia!" is the latest rumor being spread throughout Saudi Arabia like a wildfire.

An SMS message being sent around the country this week said, "The Saudi Interior Ministry warns its citizens of a truck loaded with AIDS infected melons that Israel brought into the country via a 'ground corridor.'"

The Interior Minister's spokesman General Mansour al Turki responded to news of the message and made it clear to a-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper that the Ministry "did not issue any such announcement. This is just a rumor."
Just a rumor that made the front page of an Arabic newspaper.

They can't even be consistent in their blood-libels:

Israel brought into the country via a 'ground corridor.

That implies trade, and international relations, which simply don't exist between Israel and Saudi Arabia... Of course, that didn't stop anyone from believing this crap.

When you can't work for the National Enquirer there is always a job waiting for you in Saudi Arabia.
