New Official Excuse For High Islamic HIV Rate: “It’s Martyrdom”

By Debbie Schlussel
It’s official: AIDS is now “martyrdom,” according to a top Egyptian Islamic official.
Well, as we all know, there’s nothing “martyr-esque”–especially under Sharia–about sleeping around, having gay sex, and sharing needles. But since the Arab world has the second-highest HIV infection rate, Muslims need a convenient way of explaining away this very strong evidence that Allah is not on their side.
You see, when we infidels in the West have a major catastrophe, like Hurricane Katrina, Muslims preach to their followers that Allah is against us. But now, it appears Allah is against them. After all, he’s giving a lot of them HIV. And, as we know, the virus is spread largely through that very unIslamic behavior they like to say is the Infidel way of life. Muslims need a way to explain this away and keep questioning Muslims in the fold. Thus, this new definition of martyrdom.


That’s the fatwa of Sheikh Ahmed Abu-Youssef, head of the Religious Guidance Department at Egypt’s Ministry of Religious Endowments.
Don’t expect this to end the oodles of beheadings of gays in Egypt (and elsewhere in Greater Islamia). The fatwa was issued to keep Muslims in the hypocritical fold, not for any humanitarian or humane purpose.
**** UPDATE: Reader Sean writes:

As for AIDS causing martyrdom, I’m truly shocked. Do you mean to tell me they haven’t pinned this on some Zionist conspiracy? Do we have an over/under bet on how long that takes? Or did they already trot that one out while I wasn’t paying attention? If the article is accurate that there were 2,000 reported HIV cases in Egypt since ’86 and that it’s only 1/10th of the total, that means there are only 20,000 cases there. Somehow, I doubt it’s only 20,000.

Probably right.

I guess “de-nial” really IS a river in Egypt.

Well since gay sex is a major way to get aides, Debbie is correct. It would be interesting to know the break down of men vs women that have aides in the wonderful world of mo.

Hmmm – the first thing that comes to mind is the death of Yasser Arafat. I wonder how he died?
Second, to Orville D, at least in the US, homosexuals have a far higher infection rate of AIDS than straight people. Homosexuals make up 1-2% of the US population, and account for over 70% of HIV infection rates. Most heterosexual infections occur when a female has a male partner who secretly engages in homosexual sex, and then spreads it to her. This is one way AIDS is growing rapidly in the Islamic world – there are plenty of undercover homosexuals, despite what Mahmoud Amanidinedjad says.
A second major cause of AIDS in the Islamic world is heroin use. Heroin use in Pakistan and Afghanistan is huge, and users often share needles.

OrvilleD, get yourself a clue. It wasnít tossing in a ìbarbî.
Debbie just wrote the truth.
AIDS/HIV is in most cases self-inflicted. It started and flourished because of male homosexual sex. You may not like it, but itís simply the truth. Facts are indeed stubborn things. Do yourself a favor and read a little.
And when you start calling someone else a ìstupid hateful cowî you are surely demonstrating your own hateful stupidity.
But then, you are an ignoramus.

If you ask me, I think the radical islamic indocrination is just as fatal if not more than AIDS.Actually, they are both analogous.P.C. is the unlimited sexual activity and radical islam is the AID virus that results from self-destructive primiscuous behavior. First,they pose as benign patriotic citizens looking to advance in this country. Then they gradually affect the body system through working the justice system and media by filing lawsuites against contenders of racial profiling,or trying to legislate Sharia Law. When the white blood cells of Western civilization reaches a vulnerable point where its been subdued to p.c. and could no longer defend itself, the virus of radical islam launches a nuclear attack,killing everything we stand for. We have now merged into a Caliphate state. America is longer of what we remembered it to be.
Thats why we must find the right vaccination to cure us from the left wing illusion of p.c. before the islamsists strike at us. We must act now before its too late. Infact, we should take all measures to preclude ourselves from being affected by ultra tolerance.

Makes sense. When the females in your “culture” are wrapped head-to-toe, and you are seperated from all females during that period when your libido is peaking, they’ll find either their buddy’s backside, or the closest farm animals.

Typo alert:
What I ment to say is, ultra tolerance is very detrimental to the health of America. We must use all measures neccesary to preclude ourselves from being infected in the first place.

Here’s the deal. Muhammad said that anyone who died from an excruciating disease is a martyr. So the fatwa is just saying that AIDS qualifies as an excruciating illness, and anyone who dies from it is a martyr and goes straight to heaven and doesn’t have to suffer through purgatory. See this book at Google Book Search:

They won’t use a prophylactic because they won’t be able to be the baby-daddy.

I didn’t realise that the “Arab world has the second-highest HIV infection rate.” Are there programs to help prevent the further spread? I know a lot is being done in Africia to help curb the spread of HIV. But if its so high in the “Arab world” would be good to see more attention on this topic.
Where did you get that statistic from?

The US Military Academy at West point, as recently as the 1950’s, taught that homosexuality was so great among arabs that the Brits, who trained the Jordanian army during the 20’s and 30’s, had to screen out vast numbers of faggots from the arab ranks because they could not adapt to military discipline. It was not possible to achieve the cohesiveness required of a combat force with a high percentage of “butt boys” requiring a poke in the ass every hour or two. Don’t know what they’re teaching at West Point these days, but Billary, as one of his first acts in the “oral” office, adopted the very policy that the Brits had found unworkable with his “don’t ask-don’t tell” presidential directive morphing the US military into yet another taxpayer financed “privileged sanctuary” for his faggot constituancy. I think this explains to a large extent the “effeminization” of the US military command structure under the clinton administration and its continuation under Bush and the presence of faggot ACLU lawyers in the Marine Corp JAG offices persecuting our young combat marines for doing the job we sent them to do.
This illustrates several significant points: 1) Homosexuality has historically been widespread within the arab world, 2) Homosexuality is an impediment to military combat effectiveness, and 3) American liberals and RINO’s use faggots as “tools” for destroying the combat effectiveness of the US military, primarily the marine Corp because they realize, without the US Marine Corps, the US is defenseless and that appears to be precisely what they are trying to render.

farazharoon…There is a program for halting the spread of aids. It’s called “stay away from girlie boys. Don’t poke em in the ass”. It’s been around a long time…at least from old testament days. Surprising how many haven’t heard of it.

Another STUPID post by this Psycho. The Arab world as the LOWEST HIV RATE in the world. SHOW ME THE EVIDENCE? You are out of your mind.
