What will those nefarious geniuses at Mossad think of next?
Hamas suspects that Israeli intelligence services are supplying its Gaza Strip stronghold with chewing gum that boosts the sex drive in order to “corrupt the young,” an official said on Tuesday.
“We have discovered two types of stimulants that were introduced into the Gaza Strip from Israeli border crossings,” Hamas police spokesman Islam Shahwan told AFP. […]
The story came to light after a Palestinian man filed a complaint that his daughter had experienced “dubious side effects” after chewing the offending gum, Israeli media reported.
Not to dwell too much on this, but given the already explosive population growth in Gaza, if Israel were really going to do something like this, wouldn’t they be more likely to use a chemical that would discourage young Palestinians from having sex?
