It seems that in retaliation for turning Israel into an aggressive shitbird nation that hides WMD illegaly and steals its neighbors land the good lord has struck upon them the largest plauge of locusts since the 50's.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Millions of locusts swarmed through Israel's Red Sea resort town of Eilat on Sunday, devouring crops and flowers in the country's south.



Israeli agriculture officials sent crop dusters into the air to spray against the locusts that swept in from North Africa in the first such invasion since 1959. Eilat residents reported clouds of locusts eating palm trees bare and wiping out entire gardens.


"You watch as trees that are covered with flowers are devoured. They ate everything, even a grassy roundabout which is covered with locusts," said Meir, an Eilat resident.


Curious residents swatted locusts as long as 10 cm (3.9 inches) which filled the air as they walked outside to inspect the damage. "It's like the plagues of Egypt," said one resident.


In the Bible, locusts were the eighth of 10 plagues that God inflicted on the ancient Egyptians before Pharaoh, their leader, let the Israelites go

Never to let a good thing go to waist some Israelis had themselves a little locust BarBEEQ and took them home for dinner.

But some Israelis as well as labourers from Thailand, where locusts are a delicacy, made the best of the current outbreak by collecting the insects and taking them home for dinner.


"Delicious," said one Israeli man in Eilat, licking his lips after picking a locust off the ground and eating it raw. "They're a delicacy fit for a king."


A Web Site in Eilat listed recipes for locusts including locust shish-kebab, locust chips (French fries) and stir-fried locusts. The recipes said it was essential to cook the insects while alive "as otherwise they become bitter."


The locust is the only type of insect that is kosher and permissible for religious Jews to eat under Jewish law.

I wonder if Steve has ever eaten locust?

The locusts were in Egypt last week.

That kind of blows that theory.

Actually Egypt is making deals with Israel about border security and thus guilty by association so nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah-nyaaaaah......

Then again Israeli soldiers murdered 3 Egyptian policemen so for all we know this could be a diabolical plot by Egypt to send locusts into their land.....

If anything, God is punishing Israel for failing to fulfill their mandate, to dominate the enitre Middle East.

Well if Peedee wants to claim God's punishing Israel, I at least want people to know what reason he'd have to punish them ;)

If god had wanted the Israeli people to conquer the middle east, wouldn't he give them something useful, like the ability to destroy Al Jazheera, so they can engage in uncontrolled genocide?
