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.
