Iran's Espionage Paranoia Expands to Four-Legged Spies

The common kestrel Falco tinnunculus is a bird of prey species belonging to the kestrel group of the falcon family Falconidae. It is also known as the European kestrel, Eurasian kestrel, or Old World kestrel. In Britain, where no other kestrel species occurs, it is generally just called "the kestrel." (Dreamstime)

I know it’s said that even paranoids can have real enemies, but it looks like the Islamic section of the globe suffers from a persecution complex that includes the animal kingdom. It’s either that or they are in such awe of the technological capabilities of Israel that even high officials believe the "Little Satan" can bend critters to its will.

The first instance of this avian branch of Israel paranoia began in Turkey were "experts" at Firat University determined that a kestrel captured by suspicious villagers was an Israeli spy since it had a band on its leg labeled, "24311 Tel Avivunia Israel."

If only Goldfinger had known of this surefire detecting method he could have just lifted James Bond’s pant leg and saved himself a world of grief.

You can read the entire soaring account here.

Next more villagers, this time in Bint Jbeil in Lebanon, captured a vulture and once again accused it of spying for Israel. This time the evidence was stronger. The carrion eater had a GPS transmitter on its back, along with the expected Israeli identification tag.

That was enough to convict that particular buzzard. The rest of the details regarding his fate are here.

The latest unlikely spy story comes from Iran and this time those wily Mossad agents have recruited the reptile kingdom for their nefarious ends.

The Times of Israel reports, "The former chief of staff of Iran’s armed forces said Tuesday that Western spies had used lizards to 'attract atomic waves' and spy on his country’s nuclear program."

Each time I read one of the madcap mullahs stories emanating from Iran I’m reminded that Barack Obama thought they had every right to begin processing material for nuclear weapons. It’s no more comforting to learn the Iranians concluded lizards were particularly effective spies because, "their skin attracts atomic waves and that they were nuclear spies who wanted to find out where inside the Islamic Republic of Iran we have uranium mines and where we are engaged in atomic activities."

Naturally these eagle-eyed (no pun intended) counter-spies foiled the plot.

Adding the lizard to the list we have a kestrel, vulture, dolphin, eagle and sharks that have all been accused of spying for Israel. Which leads me to wonder, when visiting a zoo in an Islamic country, how does one tell the animals from the agents?
