Amen, baby, amen.
As Michelle Malkin calls it, kinda like a Bizarro 'Dixie' chick. (BTW, Dizie chicks, we're ashamed you're from this planet).
Looks like islamic fundamentalism is a global problem. Looks like they have the looney lefties in every country. God help us.
'Bearded doctors' risking health of fasting patients: professor
CAIRO (AFP) - A growing number of Islamic fundamentalist doctors are putting their patients' health at risk by telling them to fast during the holy month of Ramadan, a prominent Egyptian doctor said.
"We have noticed that brain and heart accidents are on the rise towards the end of Ramadan," Mohammed Ahmed Nasr, a professor of cardiac surgery from the Egyptian National Heart Institute, told AFP.
"In Islam, one who is suffering from an ailment is not compelled to fast but there are bearded doctors who are simply not telling their patients the truth," he said.
During the holy month, which in Egypt ends Tuesday with the feast of Eid al-Fitr, most Muslims fast from dawn to dusk but continue their regular activity.
"The rise of Islamic fundamentalism in medical circles is a very dangerous phenomenon," said Nasr, who wrote an article that was published Monday in the Egyptian press.
"There are more and more complications among heart patients towards the end of Ramadan and in the worst cases these complications can lead to death," he warned.
Egypt's medical association has long campaigned against the influence of radical Islamists in the medical world.
For instance, it alleges that a group of influential Islamist doctors is blocking a law authorising and regulating organ transplants on religious grounds, despite backing from the country's top clerics for legislation.
The legal loophole has allowed a parallel industry of illegal organs trafficking to flourish.
They sell drugs to finance their jihad. They frequent strip clubs and drink liquor before they drive jetliners into skyscrapers. Now, they traffick in organs, I'm guessing to finance their jihad.
Nice religion, towelheads. Ever heard of the Ten Commandments? Your camel-humping, little girl-raping, sick, twisted 'religion' breaks about every single one of them. And you want to force it on the rest of us? Fuggedaboutit.
Geez, no wonder we're at war.
