A series of attacks by sharks on swimmers off the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt were described as “unprecedented” by shark experts. On 1 December 2010, three Russians and one Ukrainian were seriously injured within minutes of each other, and on 5 December 2010 a German woman was killed, when they were attacked while snorkeling near the shoreline.
Theres a lot of reasonable reasons and explanation why these attacks happen, it is unusual for oceanic whittip sharks attacks human in shallow waters. For example, they need food. The Red Sea ecosystem is lack of fish because of overfishing, illigel feeding sharks, dumping of dead sheep and leftover into the waters after the Eid, and many more scientific explanation.
But, Governor of South Sinai, choose to think ‘outside the box’. In DEcember 2, he said these atatck happens because of dumping the dead sheep, but in December 6, he said:
“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.“
Why Jews? Is it even possible to blame the Jews, out of nowhere. He maybe affected by Captain Mustafa Ismail (‘famous diver in Sharm El Sheikh’) who started this conspiracy theory. In a interview Ismail stated that there are no oceanic whitetip sharks in the Red Sea. When asked how the sharks got there, Ismail brilliantly and suspicious-looking-ly answered. “No, it’s who let them in?” And the Governor answered to that question, “..Mossad throwing the deadly shark in the sea..”.
But, on December 13 The Governor said back that the shark attacks were likely provoked by a ship that threw dead sheep while passing through the Red Sea, tempting the shark’s appetite.
