International Epidemic of Unkosher Flu

What is Swine Flu? Well, health authorities believe it is a combination of pig,bird, and human disease. Israeli Health Minister Yakov Litzman believes it is a flu with an unkosher name. Egypt has ordered the slaughter of all pigs on account of it. Many people have died, it supposedly being the cause. Mexico has ordered a shutdown of it's city because of it. But, how did this disease even come into existence? I mean, it's been a while since there has been a worldwide epidemic of one certain kind of illness. But, of course, we all knew it would happen eventually. How do we protect our selves? Here's a great answer.
And maybe this is another one
"and the
pig, for though it divides the hoof, thus making a split hoof, it does not chew cud, it is unclean to you.Of their flesh shall ye not eat , and their carcase shall ye not touch ; they are unclean to you. " Lev.11:7-8
And another one-
pig, because it divides the hoof but does not chew the cud, it is unclean for you. You shall not eat any of their flesh nor touch their carcasses." Deut.14:8
Maybe these are the answers, maybe not. But whatever the answer to why this has happened, HaShem knows all things, and we are in His hands!


  1. Wow, poor pigs, I mean it's not their fault their sick. Egypt shouldn't kill them, just make people stop eating them. Hey that's why Jews don't get it. ^_^ My brother made a comment to that. Pigs are really very smart you know. Humans should find a useful way to use them instead of eating them. Just my opinion.I heard the most important thing is to wash your hands.

  2. I so agree with you. Thanks for that perspective. One guy in Israel did get it, but I do not know if he was Jewish.
