The Hajj destroys Swine Flu hysteria

With people coming from all over the world the Hajj would have been the ideal occasion for a massive swine flu outbreak. But alhamdulilah that was not to be the case at all. Four out of the five who did die were men in their mid seventies suffering from a number of ailments. Inshallah shaheed! This is not to say that swine flu is fake, it isn't. However there is no denying we have been fed a diet of fear for a year now about this dangerous "pandemic." Ignored are simple facts such as that the regular flu kills far, far more people. The alarming reports about swine flu vaccine are even more ominous. I know how much influence big pharma exercises in the medical field and they have made a ton of money marketing their wares with the swine flu hysteria. I personally don't even recommend the regular flu vaccine at all unless it is mercury(Thimerosal ) free. Bottom line : don't be a guinea pig.

Assalamu alaikum, you know, I'm glad that I'm not the only one who thinks the swine flue or any kinda flu for that matter, isn't really any big deal, unless of course, you have some other extenuating factors or chronic conditions. I don't, Alhamdulillah, and I have never gotten the flu shot and I have only had the flu a few times in my life. It's not fun, surely, the last time I had it I felt awful, but after plenty of liquids, a few days in bed, some Motrin, I was fine. I'm not anti-vaccine or anything like that, but I feel like the swine flu shot has been too rushed, and I don't have any plans to get it.

Waliakum Asalam Sr. Ginny,

Jazakallah khair for your insightful comment. You are spot on, discourage whoever you can from getting the swine flu vaccine.

The human populations face viral storms like the slow-killing HIV virus and now the quick-killing H1N1 virus, or swine flu. Humans have attempted to alter the attrition process via drugs, incubators, surgery and a long list of inventions and innovations, but these things do not change the inevitable, but only make its effects more pronounced at a later date.
