My pancake strawberries at $2 a punnet were a financial attraction, but now needles have spread to apples and bananas the attraction is waning fast as it becomes clear that this is no longer just a stupid prank. It is a well-organised system intended to destroy an economy.
Naturally the mainstream media will not consider a Muslim connection. It fails to consider anything despicable that might smell of Islam. So what’s next? Tomatoes, avocados, celery, any vegetable, bread, cakes and processed meat?
A disgruntled employee say the Police? Nope! What, one in every State?
Supermarkets are an easy target but the arrow only lands on growers and manufacturers because supermarkets simply refuse to stock anything thought to be dodgy. Supermarkets never lose. The bastardry is now in all States and that implies an organisation.
It cannot be people working in the growers’ packing sheds or manufacturers’ factories, it would be impossible to hide needle insertions from all employees. And at least one terrorist would be needed in every industry.
No the “best terrorist” system is to conduct this sabotage in the supermarket where the food available can easily be handled without raising attention. Not like in a corner store.
And so far only supermarkets have been targeted.
Needles can easily be inserted through plastic containers or styrofoam without attracting attention as shoppers are commonly seen inspecting the produce.
Okay, call me a conspiracy theorist, but if this continues spreading to produce other than strawberries, apples and bananas, it seems to me there is a deeper destructive motive afoot, other than driving trucks into crowds of pedestrians.
And as it doesn’t involve bombs or suicides, the active sabotage numbers can be maintained while no-one is likely to be searched for a few needles there is currently no law against carrying.
Maybe one less-committed Jihadist could respond to a sizable reward. In the meantime CCTV in all supermarkets should be studied carefully to reveal anomalies.
This is a very poor system for killing people… it's for killing economies and we may very well be the initial test case.
If I am right (and I hope I am not) you can bet Fairfax, the ABC and The Guardian will suggest it is just a few bearded citizens on disability pensions concerned for our dietary needs.
