When it comes to MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) it kills nearly a third of the people it sickened. Most people still haven’t twigged to the existence of MERS but that may be changing, with new MERS infections popping up recently in Malaysia, Greece, the Philippines, Egypt, and late last week, the United States became the 16th country to detect MERS in an American who has been living and working in Saudi Arabia.
Some potential explanations for the sharp rise are a seasonal upswing, some outbreaks in Saudi and UAE hospitals where human-to-human spread has been taking place, and an increase in the number of people coming forward for testing.
There has also been a spate of exported cases from Saudi Arabia who contracted MERS during a religious pilgrimage and died after returning home. And another man from Greece flew to Athens after getting sick while living in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Jordan and Egypt have also detected new cases in people coming from Saudi Arabia.
It is expected that MERS will be increasing in coming weeks as Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting, approaches at the end of June.
MERS as the World Health Organization (WHO) advised people not to consume raw milk or raw meat products from camels.
While camels are clearly a major part of the MERS story, which the majority were found infected with a strain genetically almost identical to the strain that’s infecting people, yet questions arise if the transmission occurs through the drinking of unpasteurized camel milk, consumption of cheese made from it, or is it the drinking of camel urine?
Many are raising doubts as to blame the Arab camel.
But researchers at Columbia University recently had an additional theory – the infections are highest in the spring, when camels are born.
And it makes sense, since Camels lactate only after they give birth and need their baby present in order to lactate and then they only produce milk for 90 seconds. And since the Muslim tradition is to combine camel urine with camel milk, the consumption obviously is higher during the spring.
The dilemma for western scientists is that not all the people diagnosed with MERS say they had contact with camels. So “how did they become infected?”, they ask.
As far as people who had not consumed Camel’s meat, it’s urine, it’s milk, or the combination thereof, the answer could be simple; western health experts are unfamiliar with litany of Muslim products that are produced from Camel’s urine.
Camel urine is not even detected by an innocent consumer of products that come out of the Middle East. My own sister-in-law when she first arrived from Jordan gave my unaware wife facial cream to later find out it had camel urine.
These products are hot in Jordan and we also have cases of MERS in Jordan.
Even CNN Arabic promoted under its “Health and Technology” column an article titled “A mouthful a day” and even in capsule form – just like you would with fish oil, massage it into your hair or apply it directly to your face. For best results, the CNN report recommends “to take mouthfuls of camel urine daily for an entire year” and to make sure the camel be a female virgin. Surveys are even done to conclude from patients that, the urine of a virgin camel has a “preferable distinct flavor and aroma.”
Westerners are not accustomed to how camel urine is an essential aphrodisiac to many Muslims as Ginseng is to Chinese.
There are even conferences on the “wonders and secrets of healing from camel urine,” that “camel urine is the miracle of our time and is a gift from Muhammad to mankind.”
Fatin Khorshid, of the King Fahd Medical Research Center sees it as the ultimate solution to “all sorts of ailments” like “cancer,” “digestive tract,” “diarrhea,” “sexual dysfunction,” “liver disease,” “skin ulcers,” “cosmetics,” etc.
In an effort to further promote its medicinal value in the fight against cancer worldwide, professor Khorshid has also applied for a swath of international patents. The US application, which covers “an absolutely novel use of camel urine,” focuses on PM701 (the “PM” stands for “Prophet Medicine”), obtained from the adult single-humped Arabian camel (Camelus dromedarius) found roaming natural pastures near Jeddah. ‘Separation and formulation of bioactive fraction and sub-fraction from camel urine work as anticancer agent.’ (US patent app. 2009/0297622 A1)
Amazingly, no one in the Muslim world is insulted by applying camel urine to the prophet of Islam. Many advise drinking it straight from the tap:
Even Al-Jazeera promotes a documentary for Camel urine:
And to become a blond, a thing that is desired in the Middle East, talk shows promote camel urine to be poured on the head, let it sit for 10 minutes and you will become blond (see 10:55):
In the above video, Dr. Umayma Al-Jouhari encourages that for best results for hair is to follow the tradition of the women in Taif, Saudi Arabia, who use camel urine as fresh as possible every time they bathe. “Freshness is key to get best results by placing your head under the camel” say al-Jouhari. And if MERS virus is in the urine which most Arabian camels are found infected, contracting the disease could be as easy as a husband breathing his wife’s hair during a romantic escapade.
Arabian camel urine is even exported globally in facial creams and hair products:
You can even pick some up for 10 Saudi Riyals from the desert vendor to take back to your friends in the U.S.:
Advertisements are running wild throughout the Middle East. For shiny hair and a solution for baldness one ad boasts that they “will deliver anywhere in the Saudi Arabia and the Arab Emirates.” When spoken about Camel urine, the so-called experts even give thanks to Muhammad the Prophet of Islam for his provision and bountiful blessing: “Prayers and peace be upon our master Muhammad.”
The “bountiful blessing” is camel urine.
Speaking to the Saudi Gazette, Dr. Khorshid claimed that she was inspired by Prophet Muhammad’s medical advice and that camel urine consists of natural substances that work to eradicate malignant cells and maintain the number of healthy cells in a cancer patient. “This treatment is not an invention, but rather, taken from our Prophet’s legacy,” she remarked.
A Hadith narrated by Al-Bukhari (2855) and Muslim (1671) claims that some people came to Madina and fell ill with bloated abdomens. The Prophet (pbuh) told them to combine the milk and urine of a camel and drink that, after which they supposedly recovered. Al-Bukhari and Muslim are the two highest authorities in Islam which makes the issue difficult for honest Muslim doctors to argue against for fear of persecution. Few in the Middle East are attempting to refute the claim for fear of being punished for blasphemy.
But the silence is not expected to last as MERS escalate.
But it’s not only Saudi doctors who claimed that there remedies are inspired by Prophet Muhammad. When Millie Hinkle, a Holistic Health Practitioner from Pittsboro discovered it was illegal to sell camel’s milk in the U.S., she became determined and got it federally approved for sale across state lines. She started a company called Camel Milk USA and founded the American Camel Coalition to promote legislation to benefit camel owners.
Hinkle wasn’t even that taken with the taste of camel’s milk when she first drank it in the 1980s during a trip to Dubai.
Hinkle testified before a Food and Drug Administration panel in 2009 and helped get camel’s milk put under laws governing the sale of milk, allowing states to govern its sale. For instance, in North Carolina, milk sold must be pasteurized, although no one is currently selling camel’s milk in the state, she said. In South Carolina, milk can be sold raw.
Jesus referred to future plagues that will be part of the end-times scenario (Luke 21:11). The two witnesses of Revelation 11 will have power “to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want” (Revelation 11:6). Revelation 15 speaks of seven plagues wielded by seven angels as the final, most severe judgments, described in Revelation 16.
If MERS is one of the biblical pronounced judgments it is noteworthy that such disease stems from obeying the harlot religion in Arabia, Islam which spreads her sorceries throughout the whole earth. And while man promised to eradicate disease, he failed to prove the Bible wrong, man will be plagued with disease as long as there is sin.
