While the West grapples with the problem of how to stop Islam, Ebola just may be making that Issue moot. Could Ebola be God’s curse on Islam?

The best approach to dealing with Ebola in West Africa might just be to quarantine the area and let nature run its course. Taking out two birds with one rock…
Islamic Sharia law in West Africa is actually facilitating the spread of the deadly virus. The burial rituals and practices of Sharia constitutes a toxic brew when the deceased dies of Ebola. In fact, Ebola is even more contagious when handling corpses of people with the dreaded virus.
Islam is the majority population in all of the West African countries where Ebola is metastasizing with two of those countries having a super majority Muslim population.
Islamic ideology isn’t just at the heart of the terror threat posed by the Islamic State. The so-called peaceful religion is also contributing to another major crisis potentially plaguing the globe: the spread of Ebola.
Washington and its media goons won’t tell you this, lest they look politically incorrect and intolerant, but the fact is’ that Islamic burial rituals are the key reason why health officials can’t contain the spread of the deadly disease in West Africa.
Many of the victims of Ebola in the three hot-spot nations there — Sierra Leone and Guinea, as well as neighboring Liberia — are Muslim. Roughly 73% of Sierra Leone’s and about 85% of Guinea’s people are Muslim and practiced by more than 13% of Liberians.
When Muslims die, family members don’t turn to a funeral home or crematorium to take care of the body.
A little lesson in Islamic Sharia law regarding the deceased
In Islam, death is handled much differently than it is in Western Nations… As if still living in the seventh century the relatives personally wash the corpses of loved ones from head to toe. Often, several family members participate in this posthumous bathing ritual, known in Arabic as “Ghusl.”
Before scrubbing the skin with soap and water, family members press down on the abdomen to excrete fluids still in the body. A mixture of camphor and water is used for a final washing. Then, family members dry off the body and shroud it in white linens.
Again, washing the bodies of the dead in this way is considered a collective duty for Muslims, especially in Muslim nations. Failure to do so is believed to leave the deceased “impure” and jeopardizes the faithful’s ascension into Paradise (unless he died in jihad; then no Ghusl is required).
Before the body is buried, Muslims attending the funeral typically pass a common bowl for use in ablution or washing of the face, feet and hands, compounding the risk of infection.
Though these customs are prescribed by ancient Islamic Shariah law, they’re extremely dangerous today in the spread of disease. Mosque leaders would have to violate their own religious law of Sharia and step in to educate village Muslims about the dangers of interacting with corpses and that my friend, is not about to happen.
Ebola victims can be more contagious dead than alive. Their bodies are covered in rashes, blood and other fluids containing the virus.
“Funerals and washing dead bodies in West African countries have led, to spread the disease,” a WHO, World Health Organization spokeswoman recently warned. WHO has issued an advisory to Red Cross and other relief workers in African Muslim nations to “be aware of the family’s religious practices and beliefs. Help the family understand why some practices cannot be done because they place the family or others at risk for exposure.”
The warning of course appears to be falling on deaf ears
Last month, Red Cross workers in Guinea were attacked by family members while trying to bury Ebola dead safely. In Sierra Leone, a family took Ebola-ridden bodies secured in body bags from the Red Cross, opened them up and exposed all members of the family to Ebola. As a result they all contracted the deadly disease.
The UN warns that if the spread of Ebola can’t be contained within approximately 60 days, it could turn into a global plague. The West African infection rate is soon expected to jump from 1,000 a week to 10,000 a week and compounding every week thereafter.
President Obama argues that suspending travel with these West African nations would do more harm than good. But the practice of these Islamic religious customs is even more reason to do so.
Even Saudi Arabia, the center of Islam, is now barring Muslim pilgrims from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea from traveling to Mecca for fear of them bringing the virus into the kingdom.
THE BOTTOM LINE: What an opportunity to stop the spread of Islam and at the same time stop the spread of Ebola. But that’s much too simple, insensitive and intolerant of the satanic barbaric ideology of Islam. Try telling that to the families of the beheaded journalists my friend.
