Something Else to Blame on the Israelis

If you thought blaming Mossad for the shark attacks off Egyptian waters was dumb, how silly is this?
SONIC booms created by Israeli air force planes breaking the sound barrier have stimulated the sex drive of a group of crocodiles on a local farm.

The males have already begun their mating calls, described by the newspaper as "the sound a vehicle breaking," normally reserved for the crocodiles' spring mating season, Israeli newspaper Maariv reported.

David Golan of the Hamat Gadar crocodile farm in the Golan Heights, believes the reptiles were responding to the sonic booms, wrongly believing they were the calls of rival males encroaching on their territory.

The farm is home to around 100 crocodiles and stands beneath airspace used to train Israeli air force pilots.
