Jerusalem - A new directive from the Supreme Alien Council has seen the demarcation of large parts of Planet Earth with an Atonement Day eruv.
The quasi-religious mechanism traditionally transforms an enclosed shared living area into a communal one; this weekend it will permit extraterrestrial activity within specific boundaries - as drawn up by iridescent UFO contrails, first spotted near the Mount of Olives in Israel today.
The demarcated zone stretch well beyond West Bank and Gaza with alien vapor trails appearing to trap outgoing longwave radiation emitted by the planet.
Cynics have pointed out that these lines in the sand will allow unholy alienish behavior on one of Israel's most solemn daze.
However this is the first time in 2,00 years since the destruction of the second Temple by rogue supreme alien council entities that a mothership has been involved in the creation of the eruv.
"Something massive's happening in the cosmos," a rabbinicial source commented, "might be Armageddon after all."
