Miriam Freund of the Plant Protection and Inspection Services department at the Agriculture Ministry said.. it seemed highly unlikely that the Salmonella originated in Israel. Oded Yaffe of the private agronomy laboratory Shelef said... "The odds that the Salmonella happened to reach three different Israeli farms at the same time are tiny," he added... given Israel's position in Britain these days, a criminal involvement could not be ruled out. "Unfortunately, it appears as if someone just pasted Salmonella on the basil from Israel," he said.Maybe the British should start boycotting Israeli food exports. Boycotts fix everything. Oh - and Britain's hatred of Israel has in no way reached pathological, self-destructive levels. It's a very calm and level-headed approach to the Jewish State, totally proportional to Israel's behavior and having nothing to do with its existence as a Jewish State.
