PuffHo: Toronto Muslim throws a hissy fit because the Medical Post couldn’t find a Muslim doctor to extol

Dear Editors of the Medical Post and its publisher, Rogers Digital Media:

I am deeply disappointed at the racism embedded within “Physicians Famous for their Religious Leanings,” the article published in the April 7, 2015 edition of the Medical Post.

The article discusses the professional work of specific physicians in the context of their faith. The article recognizes Pope John XXI who was a practicing physician and teacher. Dr. Schwitzer was an author of a biography on Sebastian Bach and a Nobel Peace Prize winner in 1952. Dr. Damadian was credited with contributions that led to the invention of the MRI.

The article also recognizes Ayman Al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda leader and an architect of the 9/11 attacks, as a Muslim physician noted for his faith…

She says the article is ‘racist.’ Wow, what a surprise.  We could add a few more religious Muslim doctors, like the twit in Australia who just joined Islamic State.  

  • dance…dancetotheradio

    Their doctors gravitate to the profession for the perks of fondling anaesthetized patients.

  • mobuyus

    What about the eight doctors that recently left the west for Syria with medical training from the university of sudan.

    • Or that Aussie who just joined ISIS

      • Frau Katze

        That’s not what she has in mind for reason or other.

  • andycanuck

    Maybe the Medical Post can make it up to the Moslem community by doing a piece on Moslem Nobel Prize science winners?

  • cmh

    when did the head of al queida Zawahiri renounce Islam? I obviously don’t get out enough.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    The article also left off Maimonides, who was not only the greatest of medieval rabbinical scholars, but also court physician to Sultan Saladin. Hospitals in New York and Israel are named for him.

    • Frau Katze

      Likely going for modern doctors.

  • WalterBannon

    I suggest she protest further by leaving for iraq to become a jihad bride and then step on a landmine

    • Justin St.Denis

      Or research her own follow-up article on the innovations Islamic surgeons have brought to the arena in the field of clitorectomies, palliative care following lashings, gender reassignment surgery etc. We could all be so enriched by this.

      • Waffle

        They’ve perfected the art of re-virginizing wayward maidens.

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    Or the Jordanian doctor, and double agent, who blew himself up at a CIA base in Afghanistan?…..


  • Minicapt

    They could have included Dr Abdel Azzi al-Rantisi, paediatrician and Happy Hamaser.


  • tom_billesley

    Mahometan advances in caputectomy have yet to be honoured.

    • Justin St.Denis


  • tom_billesley

    There’s doctor George Habash, but he wasn’t a mahometan so he’s the wrong “race”.

  • Ed

    Gosh, imagine how outraged he’d be if a list of Muslim Nobel prize winners was revealed….

  • marty_p

    Are they going to recognize Dr Mengele posthumously?

  • Valencia

    Islam among your doctors, pharmacists and nurses will be a real problem now, and in the future. Some nurses wont disinfect with alcohol, they wont vaccinate unless the vaccine is certified as having no albumin from pork in it, or perform EKGs or venipunctures in men, etc. I know for a fact, that a moslem urologist punctured the urethra of a gay man, likely on purpose.

  • Chatillon

    Tsk tsk! She’s just not trying hard enough.

    There was the doctor, Bilal Abdullah, who together with engineer Kafeel Ahmed, tried to blow up Glasgow Airport in 2007. And of course there’s that epitome of sanity, ex-Army psychiatrist Nidal Malik Hasan, who honored the Hippocratic Oath in the way Muslims honor so many oaths, by murdering 13 and wounding 32 others.
