brietbart ^ | 30 May , 2016 | Liam Deacon

Posted on 05/30/2016 5:09:03 PM PDT by Tilted Irish Kilt

A flesh-eating tropical disease is ravaging the war-torn Middle East, after Islamic State destruction created the ideal breeding conditions.

The parasitic disease called Cutaneous leishmaniasis is caused by bites from tiny infected sand flies which thriving in the squalid conditions left in the wake of Islamic State terror and conflict.

Thousands of cases have now been reported. Previous, it was contained in Syria but has spread to Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan after more than four million Syrians fled there ,With the same migrants now heading on to Europe in their millions, it could be just a matter of times before it reaches the West.

The disease can kill if left untreated, and creates open sores on the skin, nosebleeds and difficulties breathing and swallowing. Survivors are often left with horrific scars. A lack of medical facilities and doctors, coupled with serious water shortages, in the war-torn Middles East have allowed to condition to take hold, and spread.

The Kurdish Red Crescent had previously claimed that rotting corpses dumped on the streets by Islamic State fighters were contributing to the spread of the disease. Scientists at the School of Tropical Medicine have disputed this claim.

The number of cases has shot up from just six in 2012, to thousands just a year later. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that the disease has recently begun to flourish in Syria’s neighbouring countries.

Dr Waleed Al-Salem, of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, told MailOnline:“It’s a very bad situation. The disease has spread dramatically in Syria, but also into countries like Iraq, Lebanon, Turkey and even into southern Europe with refugees coming in.

Australia More Concerned With Dog Diseases than The US/Europe is With Human Ones

Hey FREEPERS! Since the Depp Heard divorice has got the couple back in the news, I was wondering if you saw any stories where pundits connected the dots, that being the story about Depp trying to bring his dogs to Australia during filming of the Pirates next movie. They got into serious trouble doing that because they don’t want any new diseases coming into the country.

Meanwhile up here the 0bama admin takes populations with KNOWN diseases and tells them “Come on IN!”.

Barack will now be wanting to bring more of them here.

He's bringing them in in unvetted refugee status, but he's actually been bringing in this disease as long as he's been championing illegal aliens free access to all of America:

Leishmaniasis

Cutaneous leishmaniasis is endemic in rural areas in the southern territory of Quintana Roo, eastern Yucatan, Campeche, eastern Tabasco, Chiapas, Oaxaca, and eastern Veracruz. Mucocutaneous leishmaniasis has occurred in Jalisco State, and visceral leishmaniasis has occurred in Guerrero and Morelos States. Cutaneous leishmaniasis occurs across both the northeast and southeast regions.

True that !
The article at the source goes into much more detail, and suggests limiting refugees transit , and even detaining people with the infections.
The article also indicates that due to the shortage of medical personel , that the true, current numbers of those infected are not known
and may be more fully spread among the refugee population and the adjoining areas.

The Lincoln Bedroom should be available, if they can move Grandma Robinson out for a week or two.

TexasRepublic :" How will the disease spread in Europe?

There are sand fleas in Southern Europe, so it is possible to spread there.
Also , it is possible to spread here. See below:
"Leishmaniasis is a disease caused by an intracellular protozoan parasite (genus Leishmania) transmitted by the bite of (an infected) female phlebotomine sandfly."( parenthesis mine )
www.emedicine.medscape.com/article/220298-overview

" Cutaneous leishmaniasis is a parasitic disease occurring throughout the Americas from Texas to Argentina, and in the Old World, particularly the Middle East .."
So , it is already known to occur in North America.

It is caused by a trypanosome(type of parasite) which lives in the tissues. Another parasitic disease, Chagas disease, is also caused by a trypanosome(trypanosoma cruzi) and has already been brought into the US by illegals coming across the border. Oregon had 24 confirmed cases last year.....CONFIRMED CASES. There are probably many more. The Red Cross has had to start checking for it in blood donations. There is also NO CURE for this disease. It invades the tissues through it’s reproductive cycle and eventually kills it’s human host.

Someone voted for the sorry, good for nothing congresscritters who allowed this to happen. Vote 'em all out next election.

Clean the House... and the Senate.

I read somewhere that there was a plan by the liberals to storm congress and the senate and hold everyone hostage in one big non-vilent demonstration staged by bums, illegals and union workers to demand higher taxes and welfare spending.

I think now would be a good time for us to do the same thing only demand they build a wall and stop the migrants now!
