And Now For Something Completely Similar

And you thought that the hysteria over the supposed Zionist AIDS-infected melons story was ridiculous. Now viruses can be caught over cell phones.
Rumours of a deadly virus being transmitted by via mobile phones have caused some mosques in the country’s biggest city, Karachi, to announce that people are dying of a mobile virus and that they should be wary of God’s wrath.
Wow, I was not aware that stupidity is a sin.
Meanwhile, in Lahore, Jinnah Hospital doctors treated two patients claiming to be infected by the “deadly phone virus” after listening to phone calls on their cell phones. The patients said that they needed immediate medical attention. Tariq, one of the patients, said, “While talking to a relative, I couldn’t hear anything for a few moments. I think I’m infected with the mobile phone virus.” The doctor who treated him said they had found no signs of any thing wrong with him.
Obviously the doctor neglected to check the patient's head.
The cellular operators have moved to calm subscribers and said in a joint statement, “The rumours are baseless. They do not make any sense in technological terms.”
But what they don't understand is that the more wild and baseless the rumors, the more likely they will be believed.
Cell phone service providers stated that there was no scientific proof of such claims of deaths through calls. “There is no proof of a virus that can harm the human body after a person receives a call,” they said.
Yeah, just like there is no proof that the Mossad was involved in 9-11.

Oh well, things like this should be no surprise anymore. Apparently people who believe that it's ok to murder others by blowing one's self up in order to promote their faith and get them into an orgy in paradise find no problem believing things like this.

Wow. Cell phones transmit deadly viruses, and cause brain tumors.

I think there must be some kind of "stupid chemical" in the Gaza water supply...
