Pakistan: Jihad attack on polio team kills policeman

PakistanPoliceA Pakistani Muslim cleric has said that polio vaccinations are un-Islamic. And such “extremist” clerics are not just in Pakistan: in Nigeria, a Muslim cleric was arrested for playing a role in sparking the murders of polio workers. These murders are driven by Islamic supremacist conspiracy paranoia. And they are so common that it is easy to lose sight of how barbaric they are. If any other group in any other country were regularly murdering health workers, there would be an international outcry. But since the murderers in these cases justify their murders on Islamic grounds, the global “human rights community” says nothing. To speak out would be “Islamophobic.”

“Attack on polio team kills policeman in Balochistan,” by Syed Ali Shah for Dawn, March 27 (thanks to Lookmann):

QUETTA: At least one police man was killed on Thursday when suspected militants attacked a polio team in Balochistan’s Loralai district, police said.

Shah Muhammad, a police official told Dawn.com that unknown armed men on motorcycle opened fire on a polio team in Nasarabad area of Loralai.

He said one policeman guarding the polio team workers was killed on the spot.

“The militants sped away on their motorcycle after the attack”, Muhammad said.

The polio team was engaged in an anti-polio drive in Loralai bazar when it came under attack by the suspected militants.

Moreover, police and levies personnel reached the spot and started an investigation of the incident.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

Polio teams in Quetta, Pishin and other parts of Balochistan had been repeatedly attacked by militants in the past.

Also, attacks on part of militants have affected the anti polio drive in Balochistan.

In 2012, 73 cases of polio virus were reported from different parts of the province. However, since January 2013, no polio case was reported from any part of Balochistan.

If Islamic jihadists get their way, that will be changing soon.

    Disease and poverty are normative Islamic policies for the masses only. The children of Al Qaeda leaders will get vaccinated to be sure.

    Anti-Islam vaccice
    EVERYTHING is a threat to Islam’s fragile doctrines.

    They must fear that the vaccine will prevent the disease of Islam from spreading.

    Just imagine for one split second, the kind of outrage that would generate from the looney lefties, if the Pope or Pat Robertson were to tell Christians to refuse to take their children to the doctor for the sniffles.

    SO WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE AGAINST THESE 7TH CENTURY NEANDERTHALS, WHO NOT ONLY OPPOSE MODERN MEDICINE BY THEIR WORDS, BUT ACTUALLY MURDER THOSE WHO ARE TRYING TO HELP THEM???? OMG, OMG!!!!!

    This is a *very* important point.

    I read an article at Care2 yesterday about those who rejected polio vaccines in Africa and Asia, and seemed to think that they were of a piece with resistance to vaccination in the West, *but it is not*.

    Those in the West who reject vaccination believe that vaccines may cause autism or other problems for children. I think they are wrong-headed, but it is clear that they represent *no* threat to health workers whatsoever.

    They also don’t believe that vaccines are some sort of conspiracy—just that they are a mistake.

    Now, I’m not quite old enough to remember polio scares, but I was in the first generation that was free of such fears, and I knew older people who well remembered such horrors.

    So I think resistance to vaccination is a public health hazard, but it is *very* different in intent.

    The one thing that keeps this from just being a harmless eccentricity is this, though: I can well imagine children in the West who have not been vaccinated due to misguided parental concerns contracting polio from Muslim children exposed to it back in Dar-al-Islam where they *are* slaughtering health care workers.

    With our insane immigration policies, it is surely only a matter of time…
