VIDEO: Middle East reacts to swine flu with infomercials, conspiracy theories

The H1N1 virus, or Swine Flu, is causing quite a stir in the Middle East. Just take a look at the two videos from Middle East media (captured and translated by MEMRI) below.

The first is an Iraqi Health Ministry infomercial on how to avoid getting the virus. (Sorry, can’t embed it)

And the second is an Iranian TV clip that alleges a conspiracy between the U.S. and a drug maker to spread the virus. The clip says the U.S. is in cahoots with the drugmaker of Tamiflu and Donald Rumsfeld, who they say owns stock in the company (I’m not kidding). And if that’s not enough, the drug maker is also apparently run by Jews, further adding to the cabal!
