Muslims and Jews agree to pick on Mexicans

"Swine flu" is an offensive term, according to Israel's Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman. It should be called "Mexican flu".

Yeah, best to avoid offending people who have scripturally dictated dietary taboos and instead stigmatize an entire nation.

I'm glad to see the dumbass has his priorities in order, and will be able to assure people that they are at least not dying of something with an offensive name. Maybe they'll be able to develop kosher and halal versions of the disease so that religious people can get ill in good faith.

When they've done that, well, hey, then they could even think about finding a vaccine.
