Swine flu not kosher in Israel

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Swine flu? Not in the Jewish state.

"We will call it Mexico flu. We won't call it swine flu," Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman, a black-garbed Orthodox Jew, told a news conference Monday, assuring the Israeli public that authorities were prepared to handle any cases.

Under Jewish dietary laws, pigs are considered unclean and pork is forbidden food -- although the non-kosher meat is available in some stores in Israel.

Not just the religious. I heard on the news yesterday that 11 countries have stopped importing meat from the US because of the Swine flu...dumbasses.

I thought it couldn't be transmitted by eating meat from infected pigs?

I thought that was what you meant, just verifying :D Personally I think they're blowing this way out of proportion, and the only reason it seems like such an emergency is the media attention to which the normal seasonal flu doesn't garner. But that's just me...

They feed their pigs every imaginable type of filth including drinking sewage water. Most people have no idea what they are buying when they go to the store.
