Reports in the Egyptian media claim that Israel's spy agency, Mossad, has plotted to cause infertility in Egypt. According to Al-Ahram newspaper, Supreme State Security Criminal Court investigations of Bashar Abu Zaid, the Jordanian who is accused of spying on Egypt for Israel, have revealed an Israeli plot to market a hair product which endangers reproductive abilities.
The newspaper claims that Mossad agent Ofir Harrari told Abu Zaid to set up a company to import the Israeli-produced "Kereatine"; Abu Zaid would have been the only agent for that product in Egypt. The Court's investigations discovered, it is claimed, that the product causes infertility in both men and women.
Al-Ahram also reported that Mossad asked the Jordanian spy to open telecom companies in Sudan and Libya to allow Israel to monitor communication traffic in both countries.
Abu Zaid has, it is alleged, confessed to receiving $35,000 for his work as a spy. This included $4,000 for a report he produced about the spread of the Egyptian Army and Interior Ministry officers on Egypt's streets after the January 25 Revolution.
