No comment? No comment

The excellent North Carolina Bureau checks in with this Reuters yarn:

Wrath of God behind Israel bird flu?
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An outbreak of deadly bird flu in Israel is God's punishment for calls in election ads to legalize gay marriages, according to Rabbi David Basri, a prominent sage preaching Kabbalah or Jewish mysticism.

Given the dateline,* the least we could expect is a graf on the order of: "A request for comment folded on a piece of paper and placed between two blocks of the Western Wall was not immediately returned."

But there are ways of guessing in advance what the comment's likely to be: No. Dammit.

* What are we talking, 20 minutes' walk from the Government Press Office? Sheez.

On another note:

So, which is it that he preaches? Kabbalah or Jewish mysticism?
