#1 They KNOW what polio does, yet they still are so terrified of the vaccine that they murder the health care workers who would provide it. How can we divert that insanity into something 'useful?'

#2 They're killing their own, why bother, soon they'll either be gone or insane.

#3 "soon they'll either be gone or insane"
They're already half of that, RJ.
Let's hurry up the "gone" half.

#4 They KNOW what polio does,
I suspect not, Glenmore. Most are wholly ignorant, or have a madrassah education, which does not teach the microbial theory of disease causation. What they know is that Allah strikes some with disease, and he decides who will be lamed or worse thereafter as a punishment for someone's misdeeds. With that idea, it is understandable if they see inoculation as a) poisoning their children, or b) interfering with Allah's will.

#5 So you have to be vaccinated in order to go to school, eh? Not a problem. Education is un-Islamic, especially for girls.
