    Hamas, Cooperation and Malaria Elimination.

    For those in the field practically involved with malaria elimination, and for those who have seen the presentation about the co-operation secured by Dr Kligler in Palestine 90 years ago and which successfully led to malaria elimination, it is sometimes difficult to really feel or visualise the difficulties which Kligler had to overcome to obtain that cooperation. We have all been aware in recent weeks of the tragic loss of life and destruction in Gaza, and the involvement of Hamas.

    The Grand Mufti in the 1940s was the head of the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine, the Muslim Brotherhood’s website even now declares the Brotherhood founder’s solidarity with the Grand Mufti. Hamas was founded by, and is a wing of, the Muslim Brotherhood.

    So it will be possible for everyone to appreciate just how strong that cooperation by the general population in Palestine must have been in Kligler’s drive for malaria elimination, despite the Mufti’s conduct which hampered, intimidated and obstructed such cooperation.

    Imagine now trying to contain Hamas. The Arab Palestine population in the 1920s and 1930s continued to cooperate despite the intimidation of the Mufti, the then-equivalent of Hamas.

    The lesson is this; if the education and cooperation is strong enough, if it is pitched high enough, malaria will probably be eliminated.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Spending
    some time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot
    and never manage to get anything done.

    You should also keep in mind that a plant will have different branching structures throughout its growth.
    Had you always been thinking to upgrade the pavers of the
    patio. This is particularly useful if your backyard is not fenced
