New cases of Polio in Syria

Reader comment on item: Conspiracy Theories Keep Polio Alive

Dr. Pipes

It seems that there are new cases of polio reported in Syria (after being polio free and 95% of children have been vaccinated until the recent civil war) and here is a link from the Guardian

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/oct/29/syria-polio-world-health-organisation-who-virus

But notice that the reporter of Guardian as usual does not tell us the whole story and the fact that also in Cairo the Egyptian health authorities found polio virus in the sewer system that can be traced to the strains of polio that are found in Pakistan

So I must conclude that polio must have been imported in Syria by Jihadists and Takfirists (from Pakistan) fighting their jihad in Syria

So it seems that our government is supporting not just jihadists and takfirists but also those that are responsible for this new polio outbreak
