Egypt thinks its spate of shark attacks are a Mossad plot. Stephen Colbert thinks they just might be right.

Steve Colbert is hilarious!

I laugh from beginning to end of all Steve's Shows. This one is a classic. He is a Zionist and not anti-semetic. The lack of rationale, the ignorance, even the stupidity of the Egyptians are ALL signs of a criminal mind. This is serious. This is the banality of evil. One has to question how such people rose to power. They make no sense. I call them moral imbecils. The more irrational a person is the more dangerous they are

the easiest way to prove that the sharks are from Israel is to check and see if their circumcised...duh.

I know it's an old clip

-but isn't the resort going to be called Shark-el-sheik now???

Hilarious! If you're interested in the subject of ridiculous stereotypes about Jews you should check out Jewcentricity, by Adam Garfinkle. It's very informative and inesting.

(61) WA Ford, January 20, 2011 3:59 AM

Just what we need another israeli conspiracy to stur up hatred.

(60) kalia, January 16, 2011 11:20 PM

hidden antisemitic

the "news" is funny but in it there is a negative spirit which does not make me smile...

(59) Seqoua Throne, January 13, 2011 5:56 PM


Hilarious! Hagagaahahahah! I almost exploded

(58) MF, January 13, 2011 3:08 AM

Support of Jews and Sharks Theory

I think that mermaid reported off the coast of Haifa last year had something to do with it. Maybe she is with Mossad and is the shark's trainer and handler.

Byron: The Assyrian came down like a wolf on the fold.

ACTUALLY THEY'RE RIGHT. ITS TRUE. THEY SHOULD BE AFRAID, VERY AFRAID. ( Look, if they can believe in the ranting of a pedophilic, psychopathic murderer we can get them to believe anything).

(56) Shlomo Shlongodick, January 12, 2011 3:09 PM

Oy Gevault!

As a member of the Mossad - I admit it's true. I got my pet shark to attack people in Egypt using the powers of Kabala. I try to get the shark to bit of Arab's shmeckle so they can't reproduce!

The Fall Guy Israel

Anything bad happens they always blame US, and happily we just Laugh.

(54) herb sperber, January 10, 2011 9:24 PM

Sharks rabbits & vultures what will those clever Jewas think of next ?

Sharks, rabbits & vultures. We've got them covered. on land, in the air and at sea. I cant wait for the next surprise.

(53) SHLOMO UK, January 10, 2011 9:05 PM

freud said it all

i dont think they are jealous of jews calling themself the chosen i think they do not likes jews because they cannot get over it was the jews that gave the world yoshka....just a thought

(52) michele ostrie, January 10, 2011 12:22 AM

well they blame us for it will be global theory is they are just all jealous that we're the chosen people and they can never get over that..

(51) Wayne Tilly, January 9, 2011 2:05 PM

Don't joke about it....

As well as the Mossad Rabbits spying on Iran we also have the Mossad Vultures spying on Saudi Arabia, Whats next Mossad Wallabies stealing Passports off Kiwi's or kidnapping Helen Clark from the UN, we know she is an Arab lover...

(50) Bernie, January 9, 2011 12:44 PM

The Israel Shark Conspiracy

What's with this Shark business? If they were attacked by a Gefilta Fish Ball WITH a slice of carrot on top then they would know what it's all about !

(49) yossi, January 9, 2011 11:11 AM

idioot theory

Arabics people think always that the Jew is the problem ogf everything that's go wrong at the world...It's shows their stupidity...

(48) Eugene Taviv, January 9, 2011 8:19 AM

rabbits as well

Iranians think Isael trains rabbits to spy on them

(47) Anonymous, January 8, 2011 2:45 AM

The idiots who believe we Jews would kill one of our own, and a carpenter yet, might believe your shark theory.

Not logical. If the sharks ate Egyptians that would make them "trafe" (not kosher) and we Jews don't eat trafe.

(46) Steven, January 7, 2011 1:03 PM

Funny, except for one thing

Nice bit -- except for the map of Israel, which clearly makes the statement that Israel should return to it's 1967 borders.

(45) Vera, January 7, 2011 12:16 AM

I watch his shows almost every night and he is just hallaroius, I couldn't stop laughing when I saw this particular episode. JEWS!!

(44) Larry, January 6, 2011 4:59 AM

Israel is very powerful but training killer sharks?

Israel is a small country, the size of New Jersey. It is capable of protecting it's land and people. But the stupidity of the Egyptians to actually thinking Israel would train sharks to kill innocent people when they are the ones who warn civilians before they are about to take out the terrorist for firing on innocent Israel's Dumber than dumb.

(43) shushan, January 5, 2011 7:01 PM

saudi arabia says

israel is using vultures to spy

(42) Anonymous, January 5, 2011 4:26 PM

Hysterical! Loved it.

(41) Theodore, January 5, 2011 7:48 AM

No doubr: this is the Israelis!

Even the map of Israel (turned 90 degrees) looks like a shark. The mossad was simply took the map, turned it to a shark, multiplied it and throw it into the Red Sea! It's simply that!

(40) max, January 5, 2011 4:19 AM

Dr James Goldberg comment

He is right! Shark meat is not kosher, unless he meant somethig else?

(39) Barbara, January 4, 2011 7:57 PM

Had me in stitches. Puts great perspective on so many "rumors."

(38) JLaLone, January 1, 2011 5:04 PM

It is so hard to believe that a group of people could be so devoid of humor.

If God, anybody's God, is without humor, one would have to challenge "his" authenticity. Anybody who believes in one God, but believes that this God is not the God of all people, has no real faith at all, indeed, no God at all. One must pity their lack of humanity AND Holy Spark. If we could all laugh at ourselves and have a heart big enough to love all of mankind, there would be peace instead of greed.

Isreal Shark Attacks

The problem is that NO ONE is Kosher! Dr. James Goldberg

it is a great show thank you,

did not think it funny

(34) moshe, December 29, 2010 9:00 PM

next is Locusts

We coaches locusts now, with computerized microchips implanted on the eyes , so we see where they flay .We will land them in the Sinai desert to eat the beduins ,then it is planed to land them in the nile ,and because of the magnitude in numbers ,they will drink it dry . And then gentelmen ,the frog Army is coming too . Anyone that think we have peace with this clouns do not understand it is working only as long as EWgypt assume no way to win the next fight .

I once saw the following note :- He who smiles when things go wrong has found somebody to blame it on.

(32) Kenneth Mayberg, December 29, 2010 12:58 AM

Splitting the sea was better

Quite a neat trick to train those sharks, but it doesn't quite match when we drowned pharoah's army when the Red Sea was split allowing the shark trainer's ancestors to escape Egypt.

(31) 4man, December 29, 2010 12:22 AM

Mossad trained sharks!

OK...I know the Jewish propensity to become lawyers, but this is pushing it too far!!! ;-)) I had a real belly laugh at this, thankyou. Ultimately this is why right thinking people won't take fanatics ideas seriously.

(30) hymie Meyerson, December 28, 2010 9:29 PM

its because the jews are tops in everything

So why not take this on board as well, we have broad shoulders

(29) Eric, December 28, 2010 6:49 PM


One of the victims was a Norwegian woman. Could it be revenge for the Oslo Accords...? Hmm... Greetings from Norway. :-)

(28) , December 28, 2010 6:34 PM

Keep up the good work and may this be a peaceful and prosperous year for all of you!!

(27) Jul N. B., December 28, 2010 6:03 PM

Hard hitting humour

This satirical humour is adding more 'hot chili' to the very commonly observed Arab thinking that the Jews controlled everything evil that befall on them... This is either ancient old paranoia, or a subconscious suggestive thinking they are a race totally subjugated by the Jews…

(26) , December 27, 2010 6:32 PM

one of the funniest emails i received in years

A Whale of a Story

If the Egyptians swallow this..........hook, line and stinker !!!!!

(24) Anonymous, December 27, 2010 10:59 AM


I'm from Israel, and i thought that was hilarious! The map thing is probably some animator who just searched "israel map" on google and took the 1st image he found. Steven Colbert rocks :)

(23) , December 27, 2010 1:42 AM

It's so sad that some people may actualy belive it to be true that it makes it sooooo funny !!!

(22) Jess, December 26, 2010 10:25 PM

RE: Lighten up!

Eli is precisely right. Colbert was not making fun of the Jews, he was making fun of Egypt's idiocy. You have to know Colbert's humor to understand that. He uses his own brand of comedy called Truthiness. Look it up and laugh. :)

(21) plusaf, December 25, 2010 4:30 AM

what "bite out of Israel"?

(16) Anonymousse December 23..... that's not a bite out of Israel, it's a silhouette of Alfred Hitchcock superimposed on the map... which conspiracy theory of yours would have predicted THAT?!

(20) Anonymous, December 24, 2010 4:29 AM

It sounds fishy to me.

I agree with SHmuel!

(19) Eli, December 24, 2010 1:22 AM

Lighten up!

The show was clearly poking fun at the stupidity of Egyptian politicians and not at the Jews. Maps are dug up by Studio graphic designers who are not likely to be aware of occupied territories. It was most likely the only high resolution image the poor bugger could find. Come' on fellow Yids...lighten up!

(18) Anonymous, December 23, 2010 10:38 PM

so current it is scary

Pity that this is not seen in the right light by most. Lighten up ! We are known to laugh at ourselves. We do not call for Jihad against this comic. I think he is funny & stupid. He pokes fun at the other side as wel l '' Hope they don't call for his head ''

(17) O'henry, December 23, 2010 8:33 PM

OMG! WE've been accused of worse, so why not this?

(16) Anonymous, December 23, 2010 7:35 PM

I think the point of that map at 1:10 is that the shark took a big bite out of Israel.... And who is the real predator.

(15) shoshana, December 23, 2010 4:51 PM

using sarcasim to make a clear point

People don't seem to be getting the sarcasism. this video (at least I interpreted) is mocking rediculous claims about Israel. This video make s a very clear point on how Israel is blamed for everything, in a sarcastic way..

(14) SHmuel, December 23, 2010 2:32 AM

This whole thing smells fishy to me... :0

(13) Mrs. S.Caro, December 22, 2010 11:20 PM

You anti-semetic Jerk

T couldn't think of a more disturbing commentary on the Jewish people and the sharks. You should really lose your job, because if you thought that was funny, you should have been around in Hitlers time, you would have been hilarious

(12) Susie, December 22, 2010 7:03 PM

Saw "Jaws" in Cairo

Believe it or not, I actually saw "Jaws" in Cairo (1976)! Stranger yet, (LOL) it was NOT entitled "Jews"!

(11) HMurveit, December 22, 2010 5:03 PM

map of Israel at 1:10

funny yes but did u see the map of Israel at 1:10 ...i question anyones friendship when they show Israel without Judea and Samaria....One can see how vulnerable Israel would be without there heartland

(10) David H., December 22, 2010 4:51 PM

Map of Israel was disturbing

Very cute. However, I was very disturbed by the map of the Israel which popped up. Since when is Israel portrayed with those huge chunks left out of it like that?

(9) Steven, December 22, 2010 4:04 PM

Oh! I LOVE it!

Ya gotta love it. It just makes too much sense.

(8) MalkaG, December 22, 2010 1:10 PM

Jews Rule!

This sounds like a spoof on the Protocols! Every day I learn something new I didn't know the day before. Now I know we Jews not only control finances, media, politics and everything else on land, we also control politics in the sea. So proud to be JAWish!

(7) tatyana, December 21, 2010 11:01 PM

absolutely fabulous!

This is sooooo good, soooo good! I wish a lot's of people to see it!

Having worked for years to train man eating sharks I must admit I am very disappointed with the behavior of this maverick shark. They were trained to only eat halal meat. This fellow obviously needs much more training and discipline.

(4) Antonio Perez, December 21, 2010 5:26 PM

Humans are kosher

Just goes to show how stupid and ridiculous anti-semitism is.

This is brilliant, there anything we cant do! Awesome! Keep up the good work, Mossad!

(1) Allan, December 21, 2010 5:54 AM

Let the Mossad try something different

I say let the Mossad fill those waters with whole smoked whitefish and lots of gefilte fish and really confuse the heck out of the Egyptians.
