Israel’s Ethnic Weapon?

FacebookTwitterTumblrPinterestGoogle+StumbleUponRedditDiggShare

Israel is reportedly developing a biological weapon that would harm Arabs while leaving Jews unaffected, according to a report in London’s Sunday Times.

The report, citing Israeli military and western intelligence sources, says that scientists are trying to identify distinctive genes carried by Arabs to create a genetically modified bacterium or virus.

k seriously, this sounds a lot like some genocide perpetrated against them 60 years ago. Do we really need to repeat all this?

    i just googled this and found that the quote came from a Wired article, circa 1998. While the truth of the matter can’t be 100% known due to the secrecy of Israel’s N-B-C weapons labs, there are a number of stories from credible sources that cast doubt on the story. Salon’s, for instance, seems well-researched:

    There are even some suggestions that the ‘news’ was actually lifted from the plot of a sci-fi story by an Israeli author.

    I think I’d hold off on spreading this one around …

    I’m incredibly skeptical about the ability to differentiate genetically between Arabs and non-Arabs one way or another.
