Sacha Baron Cohen plays prank on Israeli top spyJuly 7th, 2008 - 6:39 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 7 (ANI): Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen is known for his duping skills and his latest target was a top spy with the Israeli secret service.
Yossi Alpher, a former top spy with Israeli secret service Mossad and Palestinian academic Ghassam Khalib were being called for an interview for a youth documentary on Israel-Palestine conflict.
The 36-year-old star was disguised as Bruno, a gay Austrian fashion presenter.
Baron Cohen started off saying: Whats the connection between a political movement and food. Why hummus? One of the guests politely explained: Hamas is a Palestinian Islamist political movement. Hummus is a food.
But Cohen went on: Ya, but why hummus? Yesterday I threw away my pitta bread because it was dripping hummus. And its too high in carbohydrates.
He also asked: Why dont you settle the conflict with a time share on the land?
Other questions were When will you Jews return the pyramids? and Why cant Jews and Hindus get along?
He also commented: Your conflict is not so bad. Jennifer-Angelina is worse.
The victims were also made to hold hands for a crazy song about the war.
Alpher said that he could sense that something was wrong.
We knew something ludicrous was happening but couldnt quite figure it out. The Sun quoted Alpher, as saying. (ANI)
