Israel is "Speshul"

Israeli Swine re-name "Swine Flu"

Unwilling to be like everyone else in the world, Israel has decided it does not like the name of the recent flu outbreak used by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the rest of the normal world. Soooooo, since Israel is "speshul" and does not have to go by the same rules as the rest of us, you know like having to adhere to UN resolutions, Geneva Convention, War Crimes Tribunals, Stealing land without punishment, killing without being held accountable, you know, little things like that. So Israel has decided to re-name the "Swine Flu" to the "Mexican Flu" yes, you read that right. Only ONE place in the whole wide world where the virus is NOT called "Swine Flu" is Israel. Never mind that they have probably insulted Mexicans, but hey, Israel is racist and don't recognise racism. Story below:

Israeli Health Minister Yakov Litzman has been updating a nervous public on the swine flu epidemic - and he started by renaming it for religious reasons.

"We will call it Mexican flu. We won't call it swine flu," said Mr Litzman, who belongs to the ultra-religious United Torah Judaism party.

Actually I would never want it said that I had "swine flu." Why? Because Muslims don't like associations with pigs! I guess others would not relate...but I get it with the "Israelis". So they are convert Jews....I am a convert Muslim! I would not lay historical claim on Mecca and Medina but sure am not associated with pig! Even though they are ok by me as animals.

hi michelle, I can agree with what you say, my whole point in the post was that it was Israel that began this name change thing, and the point being is that if it had been some arab or muslim country do you think the WHO at America's behest would have so quickly changed the actual name of this virus? I doubt it. that was my point:)
