This is stupid on so many levels. I mean, plainly and simply, WTF Israel, are you TRYING to make the rest of the world hate you, or just trying for an award in arrogance?

So...they want to change the name from "Swine flu" to "Mexican flu" since swine are unclean and it is forbidden to eat them...does it then follow that Mexicans are considered "clean" and it is 'kosher' to eat them?  Question

Maybe they should get together with PETA and petition to rename "swine" to "unclean kittnes": then we could call it "unclean kitten flu" and avoid offending Mexicans.

Perhaps they should concetrate more on keeping their hands clean and avoiding it...no matter what name it has.

crazy

The school in dallas that had kids with swine flu is 2 minutes away from my work.
Scary freaking stuff, the worst part is everyone is so indifferent. I don't think anyone is really educated on pandemics, they think we live in a modern society and we're ok. Because we live in a modern society we're not ok - more air travel, these viruses will spread quicker than ever.

Just to put things into perspective, The Spanish Influenza had a mortality of 2.5%
This swine flu so far has a mortality of 6%

suck on that awhile

Its name was Enza.

And in-flu-enza.

Oh, be careful, ghouck.

There are some people out there who think that if you criticise the Israel government then you're some sort of Nazi and you're anti jewish (what's the term for that ?)

Which is nonsense of course.
