Recently, I did a radio show with former Islamic terrorist Walid Shoebat where he discussed how the Islamic world was getting crazier and crazier by the day.
Camel urine for cures from baldness to cancer to personal hygiene products is going viral, sweeping across the Arab world with nary a 'bad' review posted anywhere to warn people that it is about as effective as snake oil sold from the back of a covered wagon by the latest medicine man scammer who has his 'plant' in the audience exclaim, "I can see, I can see! It's a miracle!!!" And why are there no camel urine cure 'reviews' anywhere on Arabic websites or blogs saying:
Salim the Sucker:
"Don't buy deez camel urrrine currre! I am a 28 yearr old frrom Kuwait who spent hundrrreds of dinarrrs on deez. I followed dirrrections and trrried deez foul tasting pish everrryday forrr a year, and not one bristle of hairrr grrrew oan de top of my bawld head!!! Save yoor money. It is not worth even 3 wives!"
Perhaps no one writes anything negative about this cure-all because the Islamic prophet, Mohammed ordered it in the Hadith:
Narrated Abu Qilaba: "Anas said, "Some people of 'Ukl or 'Uraina tribe came to Medina and its climate did not suit them. So the Prophet ordered them to go to the herd of (Milch) camels and to drink their milk and urine (as a medicine). So they went as directed and after they became healthy, they killed the shepherd of the Prophet and drove away all the camels. The news reached the Prophet early in the morning and he sent (men) in their pursuit and they were captured and brought at noon. He then ordered to cut their hands and feet (and it was done), and their eyes were branded with heated pieces of iron, They were put in 'Al-Harra' and when they asked for water, no water was given to them." Abu Qilaba said, "Those people committed theft and murder, became infidels after embracing Islam and fought against Allah and His Apostle . (Sahih Bukhari, Ablutions (Wudu'), Volume 1, Book 4, Number 234)"
In Kuwait, insulting/cursing the Islamic prophet Mohammed, or his wives, can get you the death penalty. See news report, here where it states, "Kuwait’s parliament provisionally passed amendments to the Gulf state’s penal code stipulating the death penalty for those who curse the Islamic god, Islam’s Prophet or his wives, theAFP reported."
So if Mohammed gave his stamp of approval on camel urine, who is a follower of the Hadith to say anything to the contrary? And is it worth writing a negative review and possibly get the death penalty for it?
On the website Islam-Watch.org, one person commented, 'maybe allah's apostle believed, "Eat Sh*t". 30 billion flies cant be wrong.'
CAMEL URINE—“MOUTHFUL A DAY [DOES NOT] KEEP THE DOCTOR AWAY”
Guest Post By Walid Shoebat
“A mouthful a day” is supposed to keep the doctor away, reports CNN
in Arabic, under “Health and Technology”. You can take it straight up
, fill up direct from the source
, use in capsules just like you would with fish oil, pour it on your hair or rub it straight on your face. Conferences
are even held 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” which is the ultimate solution, as Fatin Khorshid from the King Fahd Medical Research Center concluded to “all sorts of ailments” like “cancer”, “digestive tract”, “diarrhea”, “sexual dysfunction”, “liver disease”, “skin ulcers”, “cosmetics” … In order to further promote its medical potential in the fight against cancer worldwide, professor Khorshid has also applied for a swathe of international patents. Here is the US application – covering "an absolutely novel use of camel urine" – it focuses on PM701 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)
PM701, the “PM” stands for “Prophet Medicine”. Amazingly, no one in the Muslim world is insulted by applying camel urine to the prophet of Islam. One seminar
(see 1:52) is given on how to gather it by poking the female camel to stimulate the urination.
CNN’s Health and Technology (Arabic version) is not ashamed to give a positive report on camel urine or on the dishonesty of this emerging product. 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”.
Advertisements are running wild throughout the Middle East. For shiny hair
and solution for baldness one add
“will deliver anywhere in the Saudi Arabia and the Arab Emirates”. The song in the commercial gives 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.
Few in the Middle East are attempting to refute the claim fear of blasphemy. Dr. Rida Al-Wakil, Professor of the liver and digestive system in Ain Shams University and President of the Egyptian Society of Gastroenterology in Egypt issued awarning
not to use the camel urine hype for liver disease since it causes “sever and dangerous complications”. He added that, “such hype is intended for making money … there is not a single scientific evidence that camel urine cures from viral infections in the liver”.
Dr Ashraf Omar Professor of Medicine, Cairo liver disease warned: “there is a new wave for the treatment of hepatic viruses using a kind of and the value of treatment courses per patient cost of about 10 thousand pounds. And pharmacists who obtained a patent on the invention distributed it in Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Unfortunately, many of the newspapers do promote this treatment through intensive advertising. This merely is a cheap trade.” Dr. Omar calls for the “need to obtain prior licenses from regulatory authorities in charge before putting any medication on the market in order to preserve the health of the people”.
The warning included several cases of severe deterioration including a coma. Medical doctors denounced any benefit from animal waste for breakfast. Such waste they said “contains a large proportion of uric acid, which is very harmful”.
Instead, its better to eat an apple.
