Israeli Ambassador’s Hilarious Response to Muslim Group Spokesman’s Wacky Allegation Mossad Stole His Shoe

One of the founders of a British Muslim advocacy group has made the remarkable claim that “Zionists” broke into his house and stole one of his shoes in an attempt to intimidate him, unleashing a huge wave of mockery on Twitter and the tongue-in-cheek response of an Israeli ambassador who told the activist, “We have your shoe.”

Asghar Bukhari, the founding member of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK, who was once outed as having donated money to a discredited Holocaust-denying historian, wrote on Facebook that “Zionists” had tried to intimidate him by breaking into his house to steal a single shoe.

While the Facebook post has since been taken down, in a subsequent YouTube video posted Saturday night, Bukhari said a pair of his slippers also went missing.

The Independent described his claim as “the world’s silliest conspiracy theory.”

His allegations spawned the #MossadStoleMyShoe hashtag where commenters had some fun at Bukhari’s expense.

The most hilarious was from Israel’s ambassador to South Africa Arthur Lenk:

Here are some other comments poking fun at Bukhari:

In his 15-minute statement, Bukhari stood behind his Zionist home invasion story which he described as a “reasoned, educated call, a judgment.”

“It’s not out of form with Zionists” to break into activists’ homes, he said.

“Zionists actually went about their business to silence, gag, frighten, intimidate in the most subtle ways to people who were supporting the Muslims,” he said, noting that one of the ways they purportedly do this is to break into homes and rearrange the residents’ personal belongings.
