As creepy as that sounds I noticed a mistake in the article: malaria is a parasite not a virus. on a closer inspection you notice that the url is not www.news.bbc.co.uk/aisa/1286487263478.htm or something

Looks like a plain hoax to me. Quan'sul doesn't even ring a bell in BBC's search. But a pretty good impersonation, methinks.

EDIT: You'll also notice that all of the headlines to the right of the article, point towards Lebanon and Syria. I get a feeling the poster is from either of those countries.

Bah, I liked this one a lot better (especially the evidence of raw 'n' healthy Canadian violence against ol' Dubya):

My brother thought it was true:). And it would be nice if it was, although Canada would be in a world of trouble.

And of course, there're always UFO hoaxes (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=109356) to browse trough.

Yeah, I worked out it was fake quickly, I thought it was too far fetched but the mistakes gave it away.

The url aside, surely that would give you an indication?

Eh? eh? ;)

Apart from the fakery of the whole thing it looks kinda cool though!
