Columnist In Hamas Daily Calls To Limit Women’s Movement Because They Spread Disease

Following a recent outbreak of swine flu in the West Bank, which later spread to Gaza as well, ‘Issam Shawer, a columnist in the Hamas daily Falastin, wrote that women are the worst transmitters of diseases because they tend to gather in groups and to move from place to place. He advised them to wear a niqab, saying it protects them from infection, and called to limit their movement in the next few months in order to curb the spread of germs.

   The following are excerpts from his article:[1]

“The swine flu virus, H1N1, is spreading through the West Bank towns, especially the northern ones. Four people have died so far and dozens are sick, and the numbers are increasing, [though] we hope they will stop.

“I believe that women are the most numerous and fastest transmitters of viral diseases and epidemics such as swine flu, and I am not making baseless accusations when I describe them as such. This is especially [true] in Arab societies like ours, which follow customs that are positive and pleasant, but are also deadly in [certain] unusual circumstances. [For example, when there is need] to make a condolence call, women emerge from every corner and flock from every direction, even from afar, and then congregate in one place. They comfort [the family] and also trade stories – this is very important to them – and spread news and rumors, but also viruses that waft through the stuffy air. Then they disperse, and many go on to perform some other duty at some other home or function hall. This is why I think women are the fastest transmitters of epidemics.

    @One Notch, I’m getting a black square that pops up every time I change windows.
    At least it’s better than the pop-up video ads I was getting the other day. Couldn’t make it stop.
    It was so bad, I actually stayed away from here most of the day.
    It’s probably Groogle…nothing to do with the site.

    Limit jihadi movement since all they ever want to do is kill people. They are in fact diseased in the head.

    I can attest to the fact that I’m allergic to beautiful women. Every time one comes near me I get an allergic reaction, a swelling sensation in my shorts. And, the only cure is to go into the bathroom and put my tallywhacker on the sink, and hit it with the heel of my shoe until the swelling goes down, or I pass out from the pain (whichever comes first).

    Darn those disease carrying women!

    Hard to know which side of the Hamas coin is the winning side. The female side spreads disease. The male side spreads death by suicide bombing.
