I'm not sure if "thousands" of cases have been proven to be transmitted through lying.
At least the number of criminal prosecutions for deliberate infections is hardly spectacular in the US (or elsewhere).
Between 1986-2003 there were 316 prosecutions (of 300 individuals), and 15% of those were for biting, and 7.5 for spitting (non of which transmitted
I must have a closer look at some of Obama's changes, but from what I've heard so far is that being HIV-positive no longer excludes one from visiting
the US, however it certainly hasn't meant there was an influx of positive immigrants and refugees. I recently read a case on ATS where an Australian
man is about to be deported, although he is the only caregiver for his lover with AIDS. So I wonder how many such refugees there really are.
Most infections are still due to people not knowing their status (accidental or reckless) rather than deliberate lying.
Whatever the case, it still doesn't excuse Aljazeera form their behavior, when the man could have performed his duties from a normal Western country,
where HIV infection is stable and treated with sanity.
And then Aljazeera always makes such an issue out of the "poor" Muslim immigrants in Europe and Britain, and how unwelcome they feel.
The whole channel is just a propaganda joke with selective morality.
It's not the only one, but it's becoming blatant.
Even if one does not want HIV-positive people, one can show sympathy and kindness in their treatment - just common human decency.
One doesn't have to act like a sadistic tribe of stone age retards.
