No Swine Flu

E-mail Print PDF
Pig's ArseWhile much of the world is gripped by panic, some Muslims feel they will be immune from Swine Flu, believing it
is Allah’s curse upon infidels:

Anyone with eyes can clearly see that this new disease is a curse from Allah upon America. The Mujahideen and those who support them continue to ask Allah to destroy America. Allah responded. Today, they are being destroyed military, economically, and now they are being destroyed with a new disease that is spreading fast. May Allah protect the Muslims in the West from this disease and may this disease reach all the enemies of Allah so that the American Government can no longer move a finger against the Ummah!
The people of the world should start realizing that the prohibition of pork in Islam has more benefits than harm. Islam is the only way out for success in both worlds.
In addition, Americans need to start realizing that their Government is fighting Allah in this bogus ‘war on terrorism’. The lesson of the day: if you fight Allah, Allah will terminate you in both worlds./images/stories/allahswill.jpg

christians are obsessed with pig eating even though the bible forbids it in the book of levetus. i hope the pig eating christians turn into pigs…..lol (source)
What delightful sentiments, especially considering how people in the West rush to help Muslims whenever a naturalAllah's Will disaster overtakes them! Obviously reciprocity is not considered a virtue in Islam.

Another website opines:
Muslims immuned from swine flu symptoms”…
…Generally speaking, Islam prohibits the consumption of pork because it considers the pig to be "unclean". Many Muslim doctors and specialists have been claiming long before the present plight that pork is a harmful diet. In addition, according to the Islamic belief, consumption of swine-flesh leads to lowliness in soul and demolishes  spirtiual and moral faculties in any person.
Thus, the news about the symptoms and the infections from the current swine flu virus created a heated debate in the streets, the cafes and internet forums all across the Arab world - will the "scavenger pig" spread also among the Muslims?
A review of some posts loaded in recent days to the internet exposes some kind of optimism among the Muslims. For instance: "Anonymous Coward" wrote: "Muslims are better immune. Did you ever hear of SARS cases in Muslim countries?" Other posts support this view, claiming Muslims will not be infected as they don't eat the "dirty" pork. This is of course a wrong suggestion as humans do not get swine flu from eating pork.
 As always, when such big news spread all over the world, the rumor mills in the Arab world start to work around the clock. The most popular rumor is that the Muslims themselves created this swine flu virus with the aim reducing the world's Christian population…. (source)
Now unlike the Islamic world, we don’t hold with conspiracy theories. We go by scientific evidence and cold hard facts.

One Imam has claimed the virus affirms the Koran:
The global spread of the deadly swine flu virus affirms Islam's teachings and its holy book, the Koran, according to imam Amadia Rachid based in the Italian city of Salerno. "We believe that what is happening shows the truth of our faith," said Algerian-born Rachid in an interview with Adnkronos International. “Most Muslims are not worried by the disease, as they don't eat pork and don't work with pig livestock, but many believe the disease confirmed the teaching of the Koran."
The Koran orders Muslims to avoid close contact with pigs, as well as not to eat pork, Rachid noted.
"The Islamic faith doesn't explain exactly why pigs should be considered unclean animals," he said.
"But it's clear that for most theologians, it is precisely to avoid the spread of disease that Islamic tradition tends to keep men away from pigs," he added.
Scientific truths lie behind the teachings of the Koran that has taken many centuries for man to discover, Rachid claimed. (source)
Egypt is taking the disease seriously:
Swine slaughter in EgyptCAIRO (AFP) — Egypt's lower house of parliament called for the nation's 250,000 pigs to be killed immediately because of fears over the spread of swine flu.
Egypt's 80-million population consists mainly of Muslims, whose religion forbids them from eating pork, as well as an estimated six to 10 percent Christian Copts who may eat pig meat.
Egypt's pigs are mainly raised on the streets of Cairo districts inhabited by Christian rubbish collectors and recyclers. Egyptian authorities have called repeatedly for the pigs to be relocated to a site south of Cairo.
Saber Abdel Aziz Galal, from Egypt's agriculture ministry, said that the authorities had called as early as 2006, when bird flu arrived in Egypt, for pigs to be kept separate from birds as well as humans.
"The only contact should be with the worker caring for pigs…"Pigs congregate with humans in these places, it is a very strange environment. They are not kept in farms.” (source)
I wonder why Christians have such lowly jobs in Egypt. It couldn’t have anything to do with them being second class citizens, by any chance!

Most Muslim countries are currently free of the virus, but are taking no chances:

KUWAIT: The Health Ministry affirmed yesterday that Kuwait is free of the swine flu virus, but strict precautions have been enforced at border checkpoints to protect the people of the country against any possible spillover of the disease.

 Dr Khalid Al-Hasawi, Deputy Director General of the Infectious Disease Hospital, said “We are ready in case the virus enters Kuwait. We also have vaccines…But my prediction is that Kuwait is unlikely to contract the swine flu virus.

He pointed out that the swine flu virus is carried by pigs, and that Kuwait and neighboring countries are Islamic countries which have banned pig farms. "We are unlikely to have an outbreak since we don't have pig farms here. We don't have pig products and the distance [of the countries with the virus] is miles away from Kuwait," he stressed. (source)
The UAE is also being pragmatic, and not relying completely on Allah:
The United Arab Emirates is placing its busy airports under strict surveillance to spot anyone arriving who might have swine flu, officials said…neighbouring Gulf country Bahrain has decided to suspend any imports of live pigs or any pork products.
 
Wild pigs in Iraq
Safe from the swine flu, are they?
Wild pigs roam in the marshland between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in southern Iraq.
 The Gulf Cooperation Council has called a meeting of the region's health ministers in Doha to coordinate efforts on the swine flu outbreak, GCC secretary general Abdulrahman al Attiya said.
So far "the UAE is free of this disease ... and so is the region," UAE Health Minister Humaid al-Qutami told reporters at a press conference in Dubai.
Salman Abdulnabi, an official in Bahrain's ministry of agricultural affairs, said the country's import ban on pigs and pig products includes all countries where there has been an outbreak of the disease and any of the countries that registered cases of the illness.
“Bahrain as a Muslim country only imports pork products for its foreign community. Bahrain in general does not import live pigs."
The Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) said it is fully prepared to face cases of infected passengers travelling through the airport.
A special wing has been set up in Bahrain's largest hospital to isolate cases with swine flu when detected, health ministry official Mariam al-Jalahema said. (source)

The far-left Huffington Post apparently sees the outbreak as an opportunity to attack Conservatives, with  Bonnie Fuller claiming that conservative commentators are using swine flu as an excuse to spew out racist hatred.
Radio, TV and newspaper personalities have jumped on the illness as a platform to attack "illegal aliens" for being responsible for carrying the disease across the Mexican border and infecting innocent Americans.

These loud mouths are also trying to convince their audiences that Islamic terrorists have somehow been able to do what has eluded scientists elsewhere in the world — concoct a deadly new flu virus — and then introduce it into the Mexican population.
OK, you ignoramuses: what you're saying is idiotic and racist on so many levels, it has to be called out.
#1. Why would we believe that Islamic countries or terrorist groups would have virologists capable of creating a new bio-terrorist flu? Didn't we fall for the Weapons of Mass Destruction line already, and start a war over it?
#2. If terror groups were capable of planting it among Mexicans — why wouldn't they be just as capable as planting it among Americans? If they couldn't get into the country, they'd just need to get a few of their own infected people to hang out in a foreign airport with flights going to the US.
#3. Since most of the Mexicans who are sick are in Mexico City, hundreds of miles from the US border, how exactly would they just pick up and "rush it?" (source)

Now I’m not suggesting this latest outbreak is anything but accidental, but as early as 2005, the National Post reported that Al-Qaeda could spread avian flu:
A newly disclosed Canadian intelligence study says al-Qaeda might try to spread the deadly avian flu virus as part of its campaign to sow terror in Western nations.
The report by the federal government's Integrated Threat Assessment Centre describes the avian flu as a "potential terrorist-induced" pandemic and specifically mentions Osama bin Laden.
"It is significant to note that Osama bin Laden views chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons as legitimate," says the report, titled "Pandemics: Avian Flu."
"In addition, Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda representatives have repeatedly named Canada as a target," it says under the heading "Biology and Terrorism." (source)
While we don’t yet know the cause of Swine Flu, or whether it will become a pandemic, it makes sense to protect our borders, both to deter terrorists and to prevent diseases being brought into Australia.

This is not racist. Every country has a right to decide who should be allowed in, and a duty to forbid entry to those who mean harm to its citizens.

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
 
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
 
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
