if you can’t see it, it can’t see you

Daft as a hairbrush, the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal is arguably the most insanely idiotically dense creature in existence. It believes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you. via bbc.co.uk

a Dubai-based IP-service portal left Israel off its map.

Apparently the Arab predilection for ignoring the facts and engaging in wishful thinking extends to the IP sphere. Newsflash for the guys running the site: Israel exists. Or was that flap a few months ago about some terrorist getting killed in a hotel in Dubai just a case of you guys getting worked up over what some ghosts did?

Not only does Israel exist, the PCT database lists 21590 published PCT applications having an Israeli applicant. That’s over 200 times more than the 104 such applications for the whole UAE. The disparity may partly explain why Israel weathered the financial crisis of 2008 and 2009 so much better than Dubai did. via israelmatzav.blogspot.com

Despite this, the Guide did state, erroneously, that “ravenous Bugblatter beasts often make a very good meal for (rather than of) visiting tourists” in its article on the planet Traal. This led to deaths of those who took it literally. The guide’s editors avoided lawsuit by summoning a poet to testify under oath that beauty was truth, truth beauty, and therefore prove that their claim, the nicer one, must be true. This led to life itself being held in contempt of court for being neither beautiful nor true, and subsequently being removed from all those present at the trial.

Abrogation is a great way to avoid truth… but the denial gets funnier.

Israel Air Force aircraft have been spotted in recent days at a Saudi Arabian military base unloading military equipment in the city of Tabuk, in northwestern Saudi Arabia, according to a report from Iranian news agency FARS.
The base will reportedly be used as a forward operating base by the Israelis as part of an offensive on an Islamic country. 

Saudi Arabia on Saturday denied a report in the London Times that it had given Israel “clear skies” to attack Iran. According to the report, Saudi Arabia was testing its radar and defense equipment in order to partially disable defenses, in order to allow Israeli planes to fly over Saudi airspace in the event of an attack against Iranian nuclear facilities.

The report quotes a U.S. security official as saying that ‘The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way.’

The report quotes a U.S. security official as saying that “The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way. They have already done tests to make sure their own jets aren’t scrambled and no one gets shot down. This has all been done with the agreement of the [US] State Department.” It further quoted sources in the Saudi government as saying that officials in the country “all know” about the plan, and that they “will let them [the Israelis] through and see nothing.”
