Sacha Baron Cohen tricks an Israeli spy!


COMIC Sacha Baron Cohen tricked an Israeli spy
and a Palestinian academic in an outrageous new prank,
Jane Flanagan reported for The U.K. Sun July 7th.

Cohen, 36, referred to militant Arab group Hamas as “hummus”.

And he said the Middle East conflict wasn’t nearly as bad as Hollywood superstars Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston fighting over Brad Pitt.

Cohen – famous for hilarious characters Ali G and Borat – was disguised as Bruno, a gay Austrian fashion presenter.

He told Yossi Alpher – a former top spy with Israeli secret service Mossad – and Palestinian academic Ghassam Khalib they were filming a youth documentary.

Cohen – dressed in black leather and studs – barked out daft questions in a loud Austrian accent.



The comedian ridiculed militant group Hamas, saying:

“What’s 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 it’s too high in carbohydrates.”

The character also asked:
“Why don’t you settle the conflict with a time share on the land?”

Other questions were

“When will you Jews return the pyramids?”


“Why can’t Jews and Hindus get along?”

He also commented:

“Your conflict is not so bad. Jennifer-Angelina is worse.”

The victims only twigged when Cohen made them hold hands for a crazy song about the war.

Alpher said:

“We knew something ludicrous was happening but couldn’t quite figure it out.”

The sketch – filmed in Jerusalem’s Old City –

will appear in Cohen’s new movie, due out next May.
