“Beware of Israeli melons infected with AIDS arriving in Saudi Arabia!” is the latest rumor being spread throughout Saudi Arabia like a wildfire.
An SMS message being sent around the country this week said, “The Saudi Interior Ministry warns its citizens of a truck loaded with AIDS infected melons that Israel brought into the country via a ‘ground corridor.’”
Previous Saudi rumours – hit that link – involved carcinogenic flour. The head of the center for chemicals and toxins in Mecca (now there’s a job) Dr Ahmad Elias dismisses the melon stories as untrue.
