The Fiendish Fluoridators are at it again!

The Fiendish Fluoridators are at it again. What's that you say? You don't know the Fiendish Fluoridators? Heh. Well, of course you don't. You just go on drinking your water and eating your fruit, while all the time you are the victim of a global communist plot! Yes! If you don't believe me, ask General Ripper:
General Jack D. Ripper: Mandrake, do you realize that in addition to fluoridating water, why, there are studies underway to fluoridate salt, flour, fruit juices, soup, sugar, milk... ice cream. Ice cream, Mandrake, children's ice cream.
Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: Lord, Jack.
General Jack D. Ripper: You know when fluoridation first began?
Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: I-- no, no. I don't, Jack.
General Jack D. Ripper: Nineteen hundred and forty-six. Nineteen forty-six, Mandrake. How does that coincide with your post-war Commie conspiracy, huh? It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual. Certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard-core Commie works.

Yeah, that's how it started... And now, as ygurvitz kindly brought to my attention, today's paper [Hebrew, here's the same in English] reveals that the Fiendish Fluoridators have gained sway within the Israeli government: several years ago, the Ministry of Health decreed that local authorities (such as my home town) must fluoridate the water they provide to their populace.

However, the brave Israeli High Court of Justice has accepted an appeal by the mayor of Herzliya and the Man, Nature, and Law Society against the Ministry's regulation, and the Ministry will have to produce convincing evidence that they are not, in fact, commie bastards the fluor is not cancerous, poisonous, etc.

I never thought I'd live to see one of my favorite conspiracy group cards from Steve Jackson Games' hilarious game Illuminati come to life :)
