Israel renames unkosher swine flu
Israeli Health Minister Yakov Litzman has been updating a nervous public on the swine flu epidemic - and he started by renaming it for religious reasons.
"We will call it Mexican flu. We won't call it swine flu," said Mr Litzman, who belongs to the ultra-religious United Torah Judaism party.
Pigs are considered unclean under Jewish dietary laws. Muslims also do not eat pork for similar reasons.
It doesn't matter what you call it dude - If, as seems to be being suggested, Swine Flu contains DNA from Bird, Human and Pig(1), the flu contains a portion of porcine DNA, so anyone who contracts this disease will be replicating pork DNA inside them until the anti-virals kick in.
If a jewish or muslim person catches Swine Flu will they be considered by their own 'team' unkosher/unclean?
What does this mean for the jewish or muslim individual's eternity?
