    For more details on this translation issue, see:

    It is not clear, IMO, whether the error lies in the Youm7 paper itself using the name of the wrong flu, or in the Google Translator in mistranslating the Arabic word for flu, or in some cases, perhaps a bit of both.

    Thank you alert for following up on this.

    We need to be sure to post the correct title on our threads even if the title is incorrect on the original article. And we need to be especially careful with articles that we have machine translated.

    It is widely known that the Arabic papers interchange the words "swine" and "bird" when describing possible/suspected/confirmed swine flu infections.

    And that last article gives away the location:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golan_heights

    Coordinates: 32°58′54″N 35°44′58″E / 32.98167°N 35.74944°E / 32.98167; 35.74944Coordinates: 32°58′54″N 35°44′58″E / 32.98167°N 35.74944°E / 32.98167; 35.74944

    The Golan Heights (Arabic: هضبة الجولان‎ Haḍbatu 'l-Jawlān or مرتفعات الجولان Murtafaʻātu l-Jawlān, Hebrew: רמת הגולן‎, Ramat ha-Golan (audio) (help·info)), referred to as the Syrian Golan by the United Nations[3], and as the Golan by other sources, forms a rocky plateau in the Anti-Lebanon mountains that overlooks southern Syria.

    Given that this is an Arabic to English machine translation, I'm thinking H1N1 as well.

    The article is citing Israel's Channel 10 news, whose website is:

    I am currently searching for the original article.
