Mysterious Evil Force Disrupting TV in Israel

by Paul William Tenny

Variety is reporting that the cable and satellite television experience in Israel has degraded precipitously over the past few weeks, with people complaining of screen flickers and frame freezing. As is usually the case, everyone is blaming the military.

The onset of the problems coincided with a Sept. 6 Israeli air raid on Syria. Television signals began to deteriorate shortly afterward and on Sept. 12, Lebanon's Telecommunications Minister Marwan Hamadeh told local daily An Nahar that interference had "started with the aggressive Israeli infiltration on Syria."

But by Sept. 20, Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, which also linked reception problems to the raid, reported "Syrian espionage activities on northern Israel using Russian experts" as a possible cause of the disruption.

A third theory emerged on Sept. 23 when satellite industry publication Rapid TV News cited reports that strong radar signals were being generated by "various intelligence elements, chiefly Western countries, which are trying to fathom the intentions of Israel and Syria in the near future."

In other news, Bryan Adams is in Israel preparing for a concert performance in the West Bank on the 15th, explaining everything.
