The plot: Mossad set sharks loose in the Red Sea to destroy Egypt's tourist industry.
The evidence: Ever since noted Zionist director Steven Spielberg released Jaws in 1975, nothing has been able to put a damper on a tourist season faster than a shark on the loose. That's exactly what happened this winter when five swimmers were attacked (one fatally) by a shark on Egypt's Red Sea coast near Sharm El Sheik, a popular tourist destination.
As if that wasn't enough, some expected this might not be an ordinary shark. Speaking on the popular television program Egypt Today, an expert identified as "Captain Mustafa Ismail, a famous diver in Sharm el-Sheikh," claimed that ocean sharks don't naturally live off of Egypt's coast and that someone must have introduced them to those waters. Ismail claimed that a diver friend in the Israeli resort city of Eilat had recently found a small shark with a GPS tag on its back, indicating that it was being sent to infiltrate the Egyptian coastline.
The governor of Egypt's South Sinai region added fuel to the fire, saying, "What is being said about the Mossad throwing the deadly shark in the sea to hit tourism in Egypt is not out of the question. But it needs time to confirm."
However, Egyptian marine biologists dismissed the reports, saying it was "sad" that state television had helped spread the conspiracy theory. As for the shark itself, another (dubious) press report several days later suggested it was killed by a drunken Serbian tourist who landed on its head after cannonballing into the water from a diving board.
