I don't usually post the assorted emails I get, but this one made me smile, so I'm passing it along and taking the evening off.
A short time ago, Arabian speeches at the U.N. urged the Arab
World to boycott everything that originates with the Jewish people. In
response, Meyer M. Treinkman, a pharmacist, out of the kindness of his
heart, offers to assist them in their boycott as follows:
"Any Arab who has Syphilis must not be cured by Salvarsan
discovered by a Jew, Dr. Ehrlich. He should not even try to find out
whether he has Syphilis, because the Wasserman Test is the discover y of
a Jew. If an Arab suspects that he has Gonorrhea, he must not seek
diagnosis, because he will be using the method of a Jew named Neissner.
An Arab who has heart disease must not use Digitalis, a discovery
by a Jew, Ludwig Traube. Should he suffer with a toothache, he must not
use Cocaine, a discovery of the Jews, Widal and Weil. If an Arab has
Diabetes, he must not use Insulin, the result of research by Minkowsky,
a Jew. If an Arab has a headache, he must shun Pyramidon and Antypyrin,
due to the Jews, Spiro and Ellege. Arabs with convulsions must put up
wit h them because it was a Jew, Oscar Leibreich, who proposed the use
of Chloral Hydrate. Arabs must do likewise with their psychic ailments
because Freud, father of psychoanalysis, was a Jew. Should an Arab
chilld get Diptheria, he must refrain from the "Schick" reaction which
was invented by the Jew, Bella Schick.
Arabs should be ready to die in great numbers and must not permit
treatment of ear and brain damage, work of Nobel Prize winner, Robert
Baram. They should continue to die or remain crippled by Infantile
Paralysis because the discoverer of the anti-polio va ccine is a Jew,
Arabs must refuse to use Streptomycin and continue to die of
Tuberculosis because a Jew, Zalman Waxman, invented the wonder drug
against this killing disease. Arab doctors must discard all discoveries
and improvements by dermatologist Judas Sehn Benedict, or the lung
specialist, Frawnkel, and of many other world renowned Jewish
scientists and medical experts.
In short, good and loyal Arabs properly and fittingly remain
afflicted with Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Heart Disease, Headaches, Typhus,
Diabetes, Mential Disorders, Polio, Convulsions and Tuberculosis and be
proud to obey the Islamic boycott."
