Something Helen Thomas Forgot to Mention: The Jew-Shark

Helen Thomas, in her extended rant about "Zionist" -- a word I'm sure she's not using euphemistically -- control of Hollywood, the banks, Congress, Chipotle, the AARP, etc., neglected to mention the pernicious Israeli plot to use GPS-controlled sharks to attack tourists in Egypt:

Egyptian officials say they have not ruled out the possibility that a fatal shark attack in Sinai on Sunday could have been a plot by the Mossad.

"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," South Sinai Gov. Muhammad Abdel Fadil Shousha was quoted as saying by the Egyptian state news site egynews.net.
