Lies of the Israeli media: the story of the Mossad vulture

I have received many links from readers about the alleged Saudi accusation of a vulture of spying for Israel.  I refused to post any link for suspicion that this was a regular lie and fabrication of the Israeli propaganda machine.  Today,  a western journalist in the Middle East, Rasmus, sent me this:  "I urge you to look closer at the story about the alleged spy-vulture. As far as I can find out, the original reports from Saudi media says NOTHING about the bird being in the custody of the Saudi security forces nor that they suspect it of having been trained by Mossad. It was just some villagers who got scared by the big bird with the weird transmitter, caught it and handed it over to the authorities (unspecified). All the rest is only to be found in the report from the rightwing Israeli paper Maariv which started the flood-wave of reports in Western media, all saying that Saudi intelligence has arrested a vulture on charges of espionage (or more plainly speaking: once again the stupid, anti-Semitic Arabs makes up wild claims). This story needs to be rebuked."
