1. Still after birds?
How dumb can they get.
2. During Cultural Revolution in China
Oleg ,   USA   (12.06.12)
Communists have killed virtually all sparrows, with an idea, that those birds eat too much grains. then they were stuck with too many bugs, that destroyed harvest. Luckely sparrows in China were not equiped with Israel GPS devices, otherwise Israel would be blamed for both: too many birds and too many bugs Wise Sudanees, probaly, took lesson from Mao himself and decided, that Israel in fact using birds (forget about satellites) pose a national danger to their country. Interesting, is there an end to their stupidity?
3. A spy?
Robert ,   Romania   (12.06.12)
Did they kill it and drag it through the streets?
4. Top secret sub-micro devices
I hope the Sudanese don't find the scores of genetically altered wasps dropped off at the Port Sudan area that are carrying the prototype IL8TLV ver. 2c sub-micro video/gps devices. It would be a disaster for Israel if they found these wasps and discovered the capabilities of the super-secret/advanced Israeli micro spy technology.
5. They were actually looking for Dinasours
Mike ,   Australia   (12.06.12)
6. These are the kind of morons Israel has to deal with
NudNik69   (12.06.12)
Fantasies - these people are something else. Israel and Jews could all cease to exist - but there will NEVER be peace with a mentality like this. NEVER. They are crazy , hate-filled imbeciles.
7. Haha! Opposition in Sudan
Amichai ,   Huntsville, US   (12.06.12)
"How is it possible that the regime was able to detect one vulture, but was unable to detect the jets that bombed the arms facility?" Ha! I love to see people actually use their sense of humor & deductive reasoning! Just when the Sudanese government thought they couldn't look any more stupid.
8. Don't expect them to understand science
Korem ,   NYC   (12.06.12)
The goals of science are way too complex for the fearful Israel haters of the Sudan to understand.
9. Mossad hiding as vulture
Rhonda ,   Chicago, USA   (12.06.12)
Yea but the ants escaped without detection...
10. sudan is bloody nuts along with the rest of them
captay   (12.06.12)
sudan is nuts along with some other countries, backwards, medival, the only ones who could be swayed by cults and religious indoctrination. South sudan will settle scores down the road big time. This is who erdogan considers education and moral, the scumbags of sudan.
11. Bird spys
Larry Gutter ,   Orlando, FL 32701 US   (12.06.12)
Glad they put this spy "nest" to bed! Hope they wasted a LOT of money on this thorough investigation! !
12. Amazing!
Filipe ,   Leiria, Portugal   (12.06.12)

13. sudanese are birdbrains.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (12.06.12)
14. last time
daniela   (12.06.12)
the arab media reported on a cow in Gaza that killed a palestian that wanted to kill it for I do not know which moslem festival. before that was the story of the shark in Sharm El Sheik, and the bird in Iran.. they are so affraid of spyes that the arab world is going to kill any suspect animal... I think its time the Audubon society, or any other animal ong start defending the poor animals.. By the way... do they say: its a zionist bird??? lol
15. wait till they find out about sammy the preying mantis uzzi
ralph   (12.06.12)
the shark. better not leave their homes. who knows they might be shit up by oscar the hawk.
16. Analfabets, what to expect??
Beary White ,   Norway   (12.06.12)
They cannot see and understand different kind of electronics. But they know how a TV, Radio and a mobile-phone looks like.... Bye the way, nobody has told them that the teeths in the crocodiles contain cameras?? They should put in their heads and see!!. If it is getting dark, then obvious something strange has happened.
17. Is there something in the water there
steve from raleigh   (12.06.12)
That makes them all retarded?
18. I hope they didn't hurt the bird...
Mark ,   Lodz, Poland   (12.06.12)
... I suspect they found it guilty of spying for an enemy state and executed it... ...I hope I'm wrong
19. Dumb Depths
Jenny ,   Brooklyn USA   (12.06.12)
The depths of their dumbness cannot be measured.....and so it goes.... Jenny
20. It wasn't a spy......
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (12.06.12)
It was a bomber. I hope he hit his target before he was captured. I might add that I hope he doesn't sing like a canary and blow his cover.
21. what's to be done?
daze ,   US   (12.06.12)
Will sudan execute the bird, or keep him around for future prisoner swaps with Israel. Under any prisoner exchange, if Israel can get the bird back they would be getting the better part of the deal
22. Next Sudan will clone the bird and use it against Israel
Robert ,   New Jersey, USA   (12.06.12)
23. Sudanese Birdbrains
Cheryl ,   Chicago, IL   (12.06.12)
Do you honestly think Israel would send a "spy bird" tagged with the name "Israel" on it? I think you're all paranoid and insane.
24. Sounds like quite a 'flap'
Josh ,   Jerusalem   (12.06.12)
That bird was up to something 'fowl' Sorry; couldn't resist.
25. Oh my 6_d!, they got agent Pretty Boy
...secret agent member of the 'Operation Featherbeak' .....
26. Sudan learned nothing from "Mossad vulture" caught in SA
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (12.06.12)
It was only a year or two ago that Saudi authorities announced the capture of the "Mossad vulture", which included a similar migration tag. Acting like fools, they were treated as fools. Now the idiots in Sudan have exhibited a similar dread of those nefarious "Zionists". It's no wonder their civilizations are in the crapper.
27. It works because it is propaganda!
Shlomo ,   USA   (12.06.12)
It's not that the Sudanese are stupid, it's useful propaganda aimed at the ignorant. It becomes part of a diatribe against Israel and Jews that is welcomed in the Muslim world and Europe. It succeeds because of media bias and the fact that Jews and Israeli's do not do a good enough job at countering it with a good PR push. For instance, I cannot tell you how many people I have met in the US think that Israel is a desert. They have no Idea that Northern Israel reminds many Northern Californians of home. Israel does not do a good job of letting people around the world know of the technological and medical breakthroughs that occur there and how they provide a positive impact on the lives of people around the world. When many people think of Israel, all they see are wars and conflict. We must do a better PR job than our enemies.
28. "unprecedented achievement",lol
Malone ,   Hfx   (12.06.12)
Iran had spy squirrels and aids infected melons...something else too,can't recall..this goes beyond stupid,intended for the ignorant arab street.
29. 17 Steve
alsky ,   toronto   (12.07.12)
yes, there is.....its called Islam
30. Believe it or not
Rick ,   USA   (12.07.12)
This vulture should be displayed in the Guinness believe it or not museum, alongside the shark that the Mossad employed to spy upon Egypt.
