MEMRI: Syrian Gov't Daily Suggests Israel Created, Spread Avian Flu Virus

I know you've heard everything. This is of a piece with the rest, right? You decide.

On November 16, 1998, the British newspaper Sunday Times published details about what was later dubbed 'the Israeli race bomb.' It reported that Zionist experts were trying to identify genes unique to Arabs, in order to create, through genetic engineering, dangerous viruses and bacteria that would exclusively attack these genes. The paper stated that the race bomb program was being carried out in the secret Nes Ziona Institute, near Tel Aviv, which specializes in production of chemical and biological weapons. In October 1999, the newspaper again emphasized that the Zionist entity was increasing its scientific efforts [to develop] the race bomb.
The term Zionist entity means the Republic of Israel.

Two things wrong with that statement:

  1. The avian flu is very catholic in its tastes, and does not limit itself to attacking the sons of Ishmael.
  2. God knows no race save the human race. God set aside one particular family--that of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob--but not because they were genetically any more "pure" than were any other people.
