#2 One might assume this is a plot by the perfidious Juice to make the Arabs look like idiots. However, there may be method to their madness:
The transmitter indicated that the bird was later transferred to a villa in Beirut, Lebanon

"Mahmoud, by the grace of Allan, we found this surveillance device on a bird."
"Quick, take it to our secret headquarters for examination"

Or maybe it is just a biology experiment.

#7 "Y. Livingston? Seagull, you baffle us...
Identity papers from Nablus?"
And thus was he captured
By Arabs enraptured,
The skulking I. melanocephalus!

#10 start with the Latin

The Hebrew actually, as in "Jonathan." Sputter! Seriously, I made a timid little run at Hebrew many months ago and bounced right off, resentful of the different pronunciations, weary of endless fascinating goose-chases into Aramaic and whatnot. Main problem, as usual, was too many settings of neurosis and procrastination spinning already. Decided to put it off until I get over there (assuming they'll let me in). Maybe take a class. Gasp.

#11 Assist me, Mideast vade mecum!
"Who makes a mistake here, forsake 'im.
To 'Shalom aleichem,'
Cold shoulder in Shechem!
Please say, 'As-salamu alaykum.'"

#14 Who is the geography ignorant that wrote that ynet article?

"The gull arrived at Tripoli, Libya. Unfortunately,locals noticed the transmitter attached to its leg, and apparently transferred the bird to the authorities.
(...)
The transmitter indicated that the bird was later transferred to a villa in Beirut, Lebanon. Apparently, the flapping bird had undergone a thorough."

Don't do they know there is a Tripoli, Lebanon?
