Pakistani Muslim Lawmaker Blames Drones for Polio


It won’t be long before Glenn Greenwald and Noami Wolf jump on this. And just think of all the Veterans Today and RT pieces which “prove” that polio in Pakistan isn’t caused by the refusal of vaccines… but by drones. Then Rand Paul can filibuster the polio drones and demand to know whether drones are spreading polio in the US.

The possibilities are endless.

During a debate on the issue in the National Assembly, Jamiat-e-Ulema-Islami Fazl (JUI-F) lawmaker Maulana Jamaluddin blamed the US drone campaign for the presence of polio in the country. He called on the government to divert its attention and resources to investigate the link between polio and the unmanned aircraft that hover over the tribal belt of Pakistan.

“They [US] kill us through drones and also spread polio,” Jamaluddin said. He, however, himself did not give any substantial proof to back his claims.

Jamiat-e-Ulema-Islami Fazl (JUI-F) is the 5th largest party and part of a large Islamic bloc, the Assembly of Islamic Clergy, that is part of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League.

JUI-F is run by Fazal-ur-Rehman, a cleric and supporter of the Taliban. The Taliban are not big fans of the polio vaccine. Maulana Jamaluddin has urged negotiations with the Taliban.

    This “lawmaker”s turban is on too tight – or he’s suffering from a massive concussion from all that head banging on the mosque pavement.

    Polio is from the koran.

      If Muslims examine themselves with respect to other cultures ,then they must conclude that imaginary Allah is much more generous to Jews!
