Return of The Black Hand

Saudi Arabian soldiers stood guard at the Saudi-Yemeni border.

Saudi Military Intelligence had received information that Shia Houthi rebel troops might try to cross the border from Yemen into Saudi Arabia.

As Saudi troops stood guard at the border, they were oblivious to the fact that a severed charcoal burnt black hand had crossed the border at their very feet.

. . .

An Iranian ship was sailing in the direction of Yemen.

The purpose of the ship, the Iranian government had announced in Tehran, was to carry aid to suffering civilians in Houthi regions of Yemen.

The aid ship was escorted by Iranian naval war ships.

As the convoy neared its destination, one of the warships veered and started sailing off in the direction of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia itself.

The wheel at the helm of the ship was steered by a severed charcoal burnt black hand.

Bi-location is an alleged psychic or miraculous ability wherein an individual or object is located (or appears to be located) in two distinct places at the same time.

. . .

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko was meeting with a NATO general Gen. Wolfgang Vulkan to discuss the escalating military situation in eastern Ukraine.

In the front of the office as Gen. Vulkan and President Poroshenko talked, in the background on the Ukrainian President’s desk a severed charcoal burnt black hand crushed an orange coloured rose in its fingers.

. . .

In the disputed Golan Heights border region that divided Israel from Syria, an Israeli soldier noticed an armoured vehicle approaching the border from the Syrian side.

The vehicle stopped roughly 500 metres from the border itself.

The Israeli soldier was shocked to see that the armoured vehicle flew not the flag of the Arab Republic of Syria but the sinister looking black flag of the ISIS controlled Islamic State.

He was so taken aback by the sight that he did not notice the severed charcoal burnt black hand crossing the border from Syria into the Israeli controlled Golan Heights.

. . .

Multilocation is the term used when an individual or object is located in several distinct places at the same time.

. . .

A Russian MiG-29 fighter jet buzzed a U.S. warship sailing in the Black Sea.

At the controls of the Russian MiG-29 fighter jet was a severed charcoal burnt black hand.

. . .

For information on the origins of this mysterious black hand, please read the following:

. . .

At the teller’s booth at this particular bank in Athens, Greece, the teller was handed a handwritten note in which the writer said he wished to withdraw all his money from his account.

The teller was not surprised as there had been several account closures this past month over customer fears that the Greek government would default on its debt.

He was surprised when he looked up and saw not a person standing there but a severed charcoal burnt black hand on the counter holding an antique quill pen in its fingers.

The clerk decided to skip asking for the customary ID.

As #1, the clerk correctly guessed that the black hand probably did not have any.

And #2, he had the queasy feeling that it would probably prove somewhat hazardous to his health if he refused to grant the black hand’s request.

To be continued.

    That explains a lot.

  2. Randstein said,

    Excellent weaving of the history of modern conflict to the burnt black hand.

  3. Nicholas C. Rossis said,

    Looks like the black hand may have had a, well, hand in a startling recent decision by Belgrade’s mayor: to erect a monument to Gavrilo Princip, Franz Ferdinand’s assassin:

      That’s really fascinating, Nicholas.

      Thanks for the link.

      I wonder if a city in the American South will now erect a statue to John Wilkes Booth.

      And if a group of die-hard Castro and Che Guevara loyalists in Cuba will erect a statue to Lee Harvey Oswald.

      And if some of the white supremacists in the state of Idaho will erect a statue to James Earl Ray.

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Yes, the Black Hand really has the globe of the world firmly in its grasp and has turned it upside down and is giving it a good shake.

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        Guess it’s time to hang on in there. I think it’s heading for Greece now.

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Yes, sadly that appears to be the case.
