Reader comment on item: A Conspiracy Theory Spreads Polio

Submitted by Pat (United States), May 25, 2005 at 12:29

Since we can't isolate populations that refuse to be inoculated, the problem will spread to western countries sooner rather than later. Muslims continue to travel in the West and perform the hajj. We can protect ourselves if we insist that all of OUR children are immunized and make immunization a prerequisite for getting a visa. Unless and until Muslims decide to give up their hatred and help themselves, there is nothing else we can do. If they refuse to avail themselves of a vaccine, then we should just leave them alone and let them deal with the consequences.
