World Nut Daily is connecting the dots again, for Jeebus:
Say what? “Muslim measles”?
WND reported at the end of April when there were 30 cases of children in Hennepin County who had been diagnosed with measles, including 28 Somali children who have not been vaccinated, state health officials said.
Oh, this is terrible! These children should have been vaccinated and… what’s that?
Andrew Bostom, M.D., an academic internist specializing in general internal medicine who has also authored several books about the history of Islam, said Muslim communities often prove difficult to convince that vaccinations are appropriate for their children.
“The case against vaccinations is first an Islamic one,” he said, citing a 2011 article by Dr. Majid Katme, spokesman for the Islamic Medical Association in the United Kingdom.
Wait. So this is a case study about anti-vaxxers, not a case of Muslim measles? I don’t think a virus knows or cares about the religion of the patient. Or why would the Jeebus kids (possibly) be getting it too? Perhaps they are sekrit Mooselimbs?!
