West Bank - PA Official: 'Israel Behind Increase in Palestinian AIDS Cases'

West Bank - Israel is responsible for the increase in the number of AIDS patients in the Palestinian territories, As’ad Ramlawi, director of Primary Heath Care in the Palestinian Authority, claimed Saturday.

Ramlawi’s allegation was reported by the PA’s official new agency Wafa.

Ramlawi was speaking during an event organized by the PA Ministry of Health in Jenin, marking the United Nation’s World Aids Day.

He claimed that Palestinians who go to work in Israel are subjected to “political blackmail” by Israeli authorities - something that exposes them to AIDS.

Ramlawi did not explain what he meant by “political blackmail” and how it is connected to AIDS.

But some Palestinians have in the past claimed that Israeli security forces recruit “collaborators” by first seducing them to have sexual intercourse with prostitutes and then threatening to publish their photos in public if they refused to serve as informants.


In the past, Egyptian newspapers had also accused Israel of spreading AIDS in the Arab world by dispatching prostitutes to these countries.

Ramlawi revealed that there were 77 cases of AIDS patients in the Palestinian territories.

An Israeli government official said “these sort of ridiculous charges unfortunately demonstrate the mind-set of all too many in the Palestinian leadership, that whenever there is a problem – no matter what – it is Israel’s fault.”

The official described this phenomenon as the “blame Israel first club.” The “luxury” of belonging to that club, he said, was that “you never have to take any responsibility on yourself.”

Islamists are only getting crazier by the day, conspiracies like these are the norm for these mindless towel-heads. And the sad part, they truly believe their own lies. The (or one of the main) core of the issue is they are all living in a 12th century mindset, wherein any silly conspiracy or holy-war went with the ignoramus masses. ..like the "Black Plague" was blamed on the ___? Yes, Jews!
History only repeats itself ..

The World Heath Organization will be surprised to learn that one can catch AIDS from "blackmail". I assume that they are catching it the usual ways on their own and can't admit to the activities that they participated in.

Funny. A Palestinian client of mine told me that he believes that all the sexually transmitted diseases in the West Bank are being spread by the Western volunteers who come to help the Palestinians protest.

This is not a joke, our "friends" throughout the world (Norway, Belgium, New Zealand, etc) hear this and then vote against the sinister Jewish aggressors in the UN for giving the poor innocent Palestinian terrorists aids.

This is the problem!

We give aid (help) to these "poor" Palestinians and the world hears that we are giving AIDS.

Sounds eerily similar to the Black Death persecutions. Where Jews in Europe were blamed for poisoning wells.

Sodomy is quite common among Arabs

These Palestinians are as sharp as their Muslim brothers in Egypt, the Sudan and Saudi Arabia. They were quick-witted enough to discover the Mossad sharks, and even arrested the spying vultures and pelican. And who can forget the Mossad plot to distribute chewing gum that would cause young women to become promiscuous?
