Muslims refuse to use alcohol-based hand gels over religious beliefs
Daily Mail UK ^ | 7/26/09 | staff

Posted on 07/26/2009 4:18:24 PM PDT by Nachum

Some Muslims have refused to use alcohol-based hand gels to combat the spread of swine flu because they claim it is against their religion.

Some of those employed by St Albans Council in Hertfordshire have complained about the antibacterial lotion, which is considered a key strategy in containing the virus.

Then they should also refuse any first-aid disinfectants, right?

I think they should use full strength muratic acid or something similar.

Great. Somebody dump a few kegs of beer in London’s water supply and let the whole city know it’s contaminated!

This is idiotic. Do they not understand the difference between consuming alcohol and using it for medicinal/cleansing purposes?

then they can suffer the virus....

The problem is they're putting others at risk because of their stupid misunderstanding of their own religion.

Someone should tell them any product that contains sugar will have some alcohol in it. As do all leavened breads and grains.

This is not a new story, I have been reading about this phenomenom for at least a year --- probably longer. There was also a news item a year or so ago about female Muslim doctors(surgeons), who refuse to wear short sleeves and "scrub" completely because of their religion, insisting that they be allowed to wear their long sleeved garments in the surgery.

So, when we hear about the epidemic of serious infections in all of the British public hospitals (and I believe maggots in one of them), you can think about the lack of sanitation being used in these hospitals in the name of political correctness.

Well, if they were the only ones being affected, yes; but, they are not. Death by political correctness.

The ones that created this controversy know full well the difference between consuming alcohol and putting it on one's hands. The useful idiots among them may not...

But what they ALL understand is that they they can use this to destroy the British culture and civilization... and the British are more than happy to help them do it.

they don't need to sanitize as they wipe with their left hand and eat out of the communal bowl with the right...

Yes but you forget they don’t care about health, only the 70 virgins they were promised, but like I have said before.
There may be 70 virgins in hell, but there is no sex in the hereafter, so
...the Healthcare Plan is the Jhadist plan, you are promised something you will get, but cannot use!

Lye and pork fat. There’s a reason that Armour foods and Dial are the same company. I wonder how Muslims feel about that.

It is not even the same kind of alcohol! Beverage alcohol is ethanol, while antiseptic-wipe alcohol is isopropyl! Not very smart chemists.

It is a good thing Polio is under control as it is spread through fecal contact with an infected person, and we all know Moslems wipe with the left hand without toilet paper.

If it’s against their religion, why don’t they not use any of the stuff? Let them set up labs to make stuff that is okay with their religion.

Doesn’t the Koran only forbid the drinking of alcohol? They are bat sh** crazy. I don’t care if they all get the flu, of course the swine flu is just another government scare tactic anyway. I suggest a sulfuric acid dip for any muslims wishing to be disinfected.

“Beverage alcohol is ethanol”

Dang! A man’s got to believe in something, I believe I’ll have another drink. There’s just something about that phrase “beverage alcohol” that conjures up ice, fine whiskey, and a splash of branchwater. If y’all excuse me, be right back...

Anyway, more primitive stupidity from a primitive stupid and evil people. No sorrow for the Brits, though. They created the Muslim problem, and only they can solve it.

Some might be surprised as to the great numbers of Muslims that work in our hospitals and throughout our medical community.

I’d be happy if they used soap once in a while. When they’re ripe, it’s wicked.

When I was a kid doing dirty mechanical work, I’d sometime wash my hands in full strength chlorine bleach if I needed to clean up. Maybe that would work for them.
