    Sudan: Israeli 'spy vulture' nabbed during reconnaissance mission

    ......
    Hatzofe also cast doubt on the practicality of using vultures as secret agents: "I'm not an intelligence expert, but what would be learned from putting a camera onto a vulture? You cannot control it. It's not a drone that you can send where you want. What would be the benefit of watching a vulture eat the insides of a dead camel?"

    The Griffon vulture is an endangered species in the Middle East, according to Hebrew University Jerusalem professor Ran Nathan. His students, Roi Harel and Orr Spiegel, tagged more than 100 vultures -- 25 of them with GPS trackers -- as part of a project to observe the behavior and movement of younger vultures.

    Hatzofe says the data from the tagged GPS vultures isn't transmitted solely back to Israel, but to the animal-tracking website Movebank, where other scientists can analyze the data.

    If I had a dollar for every time I've been asked that.
    Ribs, fatty deposits. Obviously entrails. Honestly it's so self evident I'm not going to go into it further.

          Don't forget the sharks Israel trained to attack people at Arab beaches.

          I also remember watching a video of some diplomat from Egypt who claimed that Israeli made belts had a biological agent that was causing infertility

              a backhanded tribute to Jewish intelligence is better than no tribute at all....
