Those Who Cure You Will Kill You


Canon White, who runs Baghdad’s only Anglican parish, said that he met the al-Qaeda leader on the fringes of a meeting about religious reconciliation held in Amman, the Jordanian capital.

“He talked to me about how they were going to destroy British and Americans. He told me that the plans were already made and they would soon be destroying the British. He said the people who cure you would kill you.”

The BBC has been wondering for years what the common factor was in a wave of attemped or thwarted British terror attacks. At last they've found a link.

Terror suspects all linked to NHS

Peter Briffa agrees - the NHS rather than Islamist ideology is the problem :

"The fact is, murder has long been a part of the NHS' remit.
For forty years now, ever since David Steel decided to get all sentimental about the pregnant poor, NHS doctors have been practising their homicidal skills on the nation's foetuses. It was only a matter of time before they decided to move on to the rest of us. We see this with the craving to embrace euthanasia, forcefeed ritalin on our children, and exterminate Mongolian Idiots. Death is what the NHS does."

UPDATE - Dumb Jon :

"They probably subcontracted the bomb-making to a nurse practitioner".

Of course it could be that what the "car-bombers" were sabotaging was the NHS, not Glasgow airport. I bet every non-Muslim in the NHS is wondering a bit about their Muslim colleagues and it can't be great for staff morale.

Canon Andrew White is an amazing character - he has MS I think - but runs the Anglican St George's Church in Baghdad to keep the Christians supported even as Muslim gangsters try to kill them.

He is a man with more moral courage than the assorted bishops and archbishops who pontificate on trivia

I understand that morale is not common in the NHS nowadays - it entered negative territory some years ago and has not been seen since.
