New York - (Mossad Pension Fund Mess): Ruth Madoff has vanished along with $15.5 million in 'monthly housekeeping funds' that she withdrew from her Lehman Brothers-affiliated hedge fund checking account just hours before husband Bernard was busted for a $50 billion Ponzi scam.

Friends say the action was an entirely altruistic gesture on behalf of impoverished former Mossad spouses whose livelihoods are now threatened by the hedge fund's December collapse.

Up to 10,000 wives and husbands of the Israeli Intelligence (sic) Service have filed a petition before a Lower Manhattan bankruptcy court claiming their share of Mrs M's spoils.

Israeli wannabe PM Tzipi Livni says she's owed $6.66 million 'for keeping quiet 'about that 9/11 financing'.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
