One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest

The title of this post says it all. The Gaza Strip is nothing less than a “Cuckoo’s Nest”. The Imams there have been saying the bird flu was sent by Allah to destroy the Jews. Unfortunately, the bird flu has now been found in Gaza ... which is the most heavily populated area on earth with about 2.3 people per square foot (by my best estimate, based on latest figures from the CIA Factbook - 1.3 million people in an area 40 miles long and 4 miles wide).

Unfortunately for the entire civilized world, the Israelis are trying to help the Paleosimians contain the virus. It would be better if they would just let the idjits rot in their pig sty. I know that’s an inhumane thought on my part but is it any worse than the way the Paleswinians feel about Americans and Isralis? Maybe God does have a hand in this after all. Someone contact Pat Robertson and see if he’s heard anything from The Almighty lately ...

GAZA (Reuters)

Palestinian authorities will begin destroying chickens on Saturday at a farm near the border with Israel in a bid to contain an outbreak of the deadly H5N1 bird flu virus, Palestinian medics said on Friday. The culling of hundreds of chickens at the farm near the southern Gaza city of Rafah will be the first in Gaza. Tests were under way at another chicken farm in central Gaza where authorities suspect the virus may have spread.

Many worried Palestinians have reacted to the outbreak by buying more fish and beef, sending prices in Gaza markets soaring. Chicken and egg prices have sharply dropped over fears by Gazans that they could be infected. Health officials say it is safe to eat chicken and eggs that are properly cooked.

Israel plans to give Palestinian authorities enough poison to eliminate birds suspected of being infected, Israel Radio reported. Israel has for months been testing dead fowl found in the West Bank and Gaza Strip on behalf of the Palestinian Authority. Palestinian medics said they have received protective gear from Israel to help them deal with the virus. There have been no confirmed cases of the virus infecting humans in Gaza or the West Bank.

Many Gazans fear the Palestinian Ministry of Health is ill equipped to deal with an outbreak and will be quickly be overwhelmed if the virus spreads. Israel is likewise concerned. Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni has asked U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the World Bank’s president for assistance in containing the outbreak in Gaza.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
