Makes you wonder if it's a publicity stunt. Yeah probably, but why choose a mermaid to gain attention??

Yeah probably, but why choose a mermaid to gain attention?? Because Israel makes a lot of money from its tourism industry. Haifa, while being a port and industrialised city, also has a large number of very nice beaches which attracts a lot of water-tourism. Rumours of 'mermaids' certainly wouldn't hinder that tourism. That Israel's image might be a little more negative at present might encourage some people to set their scruples aside and promote something which is a fabrication to boost the country's popularity as a tourist destination.

no one would put 1 million dollars into a stunt at least no goverment So, a goverment would not invest a "possible" 1 million dollar reward to increase the tourism of the country? Ah, sure they would. ya you heard me i said an atlaintian. Being from Atlantis, I would suggest that you learn how to spell atlantean. Your ancestors would be disappointed in you.

Makes you wonder if it's a publicity stunt. Either that or it's the arbritators' latest idea to distract the everlasting Israeli–Palestinian war.
