Scotland Shuts Down Childhood Immunization Program Over Muslim Complaints


Muslims don’t like vaccines. It’s safe to mock a Jenny McCarthy over vaccines, but no one mentions the vehement opposition of Islamists to vaccinations.

In Afghanistan, the Taliban have issued fatwas against vaccines and murdered workers. Nigeria and Pakistan have also been scenes of violent Muslim opposition to vaccination.

Muslims aren’t even 1 percent of the population of Scotland. But they’ve been doing their Talibanest best there, with the aid and support of the so-called Scottish National Party that often seems more like the Pakistani Immigrants Party and now Scotland’s largest vaccination program has been shut down because of them.

The roll-out of the flu vaccine nasal spray pilot scheme in Glasgow had been due to begin at city primary school on Wednesday, days after its launch by First Minister Alex Salmond.

But after parents at Glendale Primary in Pollokshields – which has a large number of Muslim pupils who cannot consume or use pig products for religious reasons – became aware of the ingredients, complaints were made and the scheme was put on hold.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC), whose area contains the overwhelming majority of Scotland’s Muslims, said it had postponed the vaccinations “following concerns raised by a small number of parents”.

The health board added that, in 2001, 100 Islamic scholars had agreed pork gelatine was permissible within a vaccine so there had been no need for advance publicity.

Which is true. The issue isn’t pork gelatine when part of a medication. Muslim Muslim scholars are on board with it. This is about Islamist activism imposing Taliban norms on an entire country. It’s about Muslims getting to throw their weight around and impose control by once again pretending to be offended by something that they only care about as a vehicle for power.

Glasgow councillor Soryia Siddique said: “Children’s health and wellbeing is paramount. The serious failure is at a national level with regards to the clarity of the vaccine ingredient which should have been communicated to parents so they could make an informed decision.”

The only people endangering the wellbeing of children here are Soriya and her sorry clan who insist on putting Islamist power plays ahead of children’s health the same way that they do in Pakistan.

Dr Syed Ahmed, consultant in public health medicine at NHSGGC, said: “We want to point out to parents and carers that the nasal spray vaccine contains a tiny amount of gelatine of pork origin used during the manufacturing process.”

He said gelatine was commonly used in the manufacture of medicines and the trace in the finished nasal spray was a “completely changed substance”.

He added: “In view of the 2001 ­agreement between the World Health Organisation and the Muslim scholars that pork gelatine was permissible within a vaccine there was no specific reference to this ingredient in the initial national communication that was produced for parents.

So we have a Muslim doctor saying that Soryia Siddique and the Islamist power play is full of crap. This isn’t about Islamic law on pork gelatin, it’s about pushing harsher versions of Islamic law on the rest of society in order to impose Islamic dominance.

    Will someone please tell me why we are allowing Muslim immigration to this country. They don’t drop their beliefs and intolerance at the border folks.

    • P. Collard

      Or their diseases!

      Better close the borders now, or an epidemic is sure to follow.

      • heapologiatoutimotheou

        Especially if all the Muslims going on the Hajj this year come down with a virulent case of SARS and then spread it throughout the world.

    • knowshistory

      because islam kills people who oppose it, and our western governments are controlled by cowardly traitors.

  • Egyptian infidel

    Welcome to Scottistan!

    • M2000

      Those “moderate” Muslims should invite Jim Carrey over, along with Alex Jones who believe in the same BS with vaccines.

    If this is affecting the health of ALL Scottish schoolchildren then this is bad. If it was just affecting Muslims, then I wouldn’t give a monkey’s testicle.
    If they want to remain un-vaccinated then let them. I hope some medieval plague wipes them all out. I personally don’t see why we are trying to please these savages.
    When the Black Death hit Europe in the mid-1300s, it eradicated about a third of the population. It also hit Mecca in 1349 and affected many parts of the Middle East, but unfortunately it didn’t do a good enough job. It should have wiped all of them out.
    Hopefully, if anything happens like this again, we infidels will be protected, but the Muslims, I’d like to see them riddled with every ancient disease on Earth. There are already incidences of polio in Pakistan and Afghanistan due to the Taliban attempts to block immunization programmes. Bring it on!
    I’d like to see them try and fight us when they are all sick, crippled or riddle with bubonic plague. This would be heavenly justice at its most Biblical.

    • Arf

      I agree with you Softly, but the financial cost to the West of treating the sick Muslims within their borders will definitely affect the quality of life. With regard to Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc., this may be a gift from heaven.

  • De Doc

    This is a prime example of the perils of piety. It’s never good enough to observe the basic form of religiously mandated rules (e.g. not consuming pork), but to protect the ritual purity, these rules are extended to ridiculous lengths.

    A similar case erupted not long ago in England where Muslim med students complained about using alcohol based hand sanitizers to maintain hygiene in the health care setting. To these nitwits it was not enough that the religious rule only prohibits consuming alcohol for purposes of getting intoxicated, but they crazily extended the interpretation to include any contact with it as banned.

    Most of us smirk and brush aside objections by religious sects that have bizarre and authoritarian rules, but only Islam is taken seriously by those in power. If it is deemed potentially offensive to Muslims, even when the religious rules say otherwise and/or the numbers of Muslims are insignificant, let’s just ban it for everyone! Once gain our silly leaders lack the fortitude to stand up to these über-pious creeps who find offense in just about everything except for creating havoc among their non-Muslim neighbors.

    • heapologiatoutimotheou

      Don’t lump all religions in with Islam. Informed Christians and Jews make every effort to dissociate their religious beliefs from their backwards, inbred, plagiarizing ‘cousins’ in Islam.

      • De Doc

        It was not my intent to lump other religions in with Islam. Many types of religious groups that have crazy rules, such as the Amish or ultra-Orthodox Jews, do not insist that others do the same or that the taxpayer bear the burden for their obsessive religious rituals. My point is that only Islam is given this pedestal of piety these days that must always come first over the dominant culture or that runs counter to the public good.

  • Seek

    I regard the Islamic invasion of Scotland, Home of the Brave, to be a travesty. This stupid, anti-scientific religious cult will wreck any country it settles, given sufficient critical mass. What Scotland needs is a new “Braveheart.” Mel Gibson, call your office.

    • Arf

      The Muslims didn’t “invade” Scotland. The Scots joyfully let them in — maybe even invited them. If the Scots wish to put themselves at risk by discontinuing a program which benefits them as much as their Muslim fellow citizens, they shall pay the price and keeping the peace in Scotland is apparently more important than protecting their own children.

      • James

        The Scots didn’t invite them here, only the ultra PC Scottish National Party invited them in. The Scots don’t want the vaccination programme postponed either, only the Muslim ridden SNP are responsible for that. This is the same Party that was responsible for releasing the Lockerbie (Panam 103) bomber from prison early. The one and only time in my life when I have been ashamed to see the Scottish flag was when I saw it being waved at Tripoli Airport when Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, arrived back there. It took the Scottish National Party to make me ashamed of being Scottish!

      Why stop the vaccine for the Scottish kids. If the muzzies don’t want it then fine.Go withoot.

      Dinnae gie them it and they can have the disease instead They’ll no like that. but how put oor bairns at risk cos o a hanful oh them…. Nah jist sort wir ain oot and feck tae them the ungrateful bastards.

  • M2000

    There are some paranoid Christians who believe in the same thing, but no one seems to appease them, so it’s okay to be a Dhimmi if vaccines only offend “moderate” Muslims.

    • gerbilcrusader

      That’s a small group. Muslims it’s the entire cult. You facist atheist are as delusional as muslims. I say exterminating muslims and facist atheists like you should be the rule!

      • james

        Ah! A true Christian speaks.

      • BromyardDrifter

        Got the brains of a gerbil as well, oh, and the grammer is just so exemplary.

  • charlotte

    I take issue with the nasal administration of a live attenuated flu vaccine. The inside of the nose is just millimeters away from the brain…a sure recipe for disaster.

    • John R. Cunliffe

      oh the paranoia

    • Maureen McManus

      shut up.

    • Hafpass

      Charlotte, you only display your ignorance of anatomy & physiology. Proximity to the brain does not equal ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. Educate yourself about how vaccines work, killed and weakened live. Then, you might be qualified to state an opinion on the matter.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Muslims don’t like vaccines. It’s safe to mock a Jenny McCarthy over vaccines, but no one mentions the vehement opposition of Islamists to vaccinations.

    So Islamists oppose vaccinations, while so-called moderates agree with vaccinations? Or is it all Muslims are Islamists? I’m thoroughly confused.

  • Yousaf

    Dan Greenfield has the longest title I’ve ever seen that means absolutely bullshit.

    • Elizabeth Y Lockwood


  • Dyer’s Eve

    Shut down Islam and immunize the Scots. If the camel f**kers don’t want to be immunized, then let them die of desease. Die! Who’d miss them! F**k em!

  • Joshua Wren

    Britain voted to allow these ‘people’ to live in the UK cos they voted for it.

    • Elizabeth Y Lockwood


  • MickyObama

    I do not understand what the problem is here. They don’t get vaccinated more of them die

  • Blake

    one has to wonder: why couldn’t the muslims just not get the vaccines? why must they nobody be allowed to get it? the answer is because muslims must declare their dominance and have all others subjugate to their demands

  • JCDArizona

    These people won’t be happy until the entire world is back in the 10th century.

  • sawgnr

    Islam is a thug cult that needs to be made illegal.

  • kbmo

    Let them get sick and die then. What’s wrong with the Scottish people?

  • Elizabeth Y Lockwood


  • gerbilcrusader

    Liberal democrats and republican liberals are the problem in any western country. Time to wage war and exterminate muslims. Burn the quran, and destroy mosques. Anyone who defends them ends up in the firing squad. Obviously Russia and China is much wiser then these liberal turds. If muslims don’t comply with their laws, they arrest them or shoot them. Until the suicidal west understands this, their countries are committing suicide. Might as well have civil wars! That’s how you rid of muslim infestation and their enablers!

  • knowshistory

    the cowardly Scottish government is just looking out for the best interests of the children. the cowardly government has invited invaders who will enslave, forcibly convert to a religion of evil, then force them to worship an evil god 5 times daily. letting them die of childhood diseases is a mercy, compared to the hell that the cowardly government has prepared for them. islam is evil because that is the way it is, and it cannot change. western governments are evil because they want to be evil.

  • raymond francis jones

    Forgets Islam,direct your say to the white Scots traitors that bow down to them.

  • Shootist

    I see that the leadership of my ancestor’s homeland is suffering from the lack of a spine. I do hope they will recover before it is too late.

  • salvagesalvage

    > It will restart next week, with parents given the choice of an injection
    which does not contain the gelatine product. The roll-out is continuing

    So they didn’t “shut down” anything but any old reason to scream about Muslims and justify your fear and loathing.

    It’s weird are you so crazy / stupid you can’t tell when you’re lying or you just don’t care?

  • Dr.R. Clavan


  • sara

    This is the most idiotic, biased article ever. Get
    your facts straight. This has NOTHING to do with Sharia law. It doesn’t
    affect ALL of Scotland, just the Glasgow area, and it is a one week
    delay, not a “shut down,” just as vaccines in America might well be
    delayed for one week if a small percentage of Jewish parents complained
    about a not kosher ingredient in a vaccination.

  • Bacchus

    The stupidity and ignorance of government officials knows no bounds. Britain is no longer the home of the brave but stupid cowardly whimps who cower to sadistic satanic morons who themselves are the most uneducated unintelligent fools in the world today. Och lad yar cudda foold me.

  • Nicole

    For once the muslims have achieved some common good! There is nothing less scientific backed than the flu shot! Add Formadehyde (embalming liquid, methylmercury and all the other poisens like aluminium which this shot contains, and pork residue is the least of anyone’s worries!

  • Tony Afara

    I don’t understand. Why are the even paying attention to them? Oh wait I do, its because we constantly fail to realize that we can only fight violence with violence, force with more intense force. until then they will keep spreading their poison throughout societies. but what I really don’t understand is how advanced societies listen to a medieval minded worm wrapped in toilet paper as seen above.

  • Colin Stanley

    I can’t understand, what’s happening here, you have so many different nationalities in the UK, Muslims, Chines, Indian,Italian,Maltese,Polish,Jews,etc, we never hear of any problems from anybody, only from the Muslims,and they always seem to get their way, why? can someone please explain.

  • bobbah

    So less than 1% of the population rules? The health system in the UK is one of the best in the world – why let a sad backward ignorant cult tell you all what to do. Let their children get sick and die of that is what they want, but do not allow your children to get sick because of their ignorance !
