Immigrants in Spain on Dog-Killing Spree

The Hudson website calls it “Muslims in Spain Declare Jihad on Dogs”.

Imagine the Ummah, where all dhimmis will have the liberty to live dog-free. Forward-thinking Muslims in Spain want to make that freedom a reality now:

Spanish authorities are investigating the recent deaths by poisoning of more than a dozen dogs in Lérida, a city in the northeastern region of Catalonia that has become ground zero in an intensifying debate over the role of Islam in Spain.

All of the dogs were poisoned in September…in Lérida’s working class neighbourhoods of Cappont and La Bordeta, districts that are heavily populated by Muslim immigrants and where many dogs have been killed in recent years.

Local residents say Muslim immigrants killed the dogs because according to Islamic teaching dogs are “unclean” animals.

Whereas camels are not, of course.

In a recent essay at American Thinker, Andrew Bostom quotes the latest Islamic American jurisprudence on dog-owning for Muslims. In a word, don’t. Not even if you had the dog before you converted to Islam. In such a case, either the dog goes or the Prophet does.

There seems to be a whim theory approach to animals in shariah. Some are deemed fit for carnal knowledge –

but a good Muslim has to sell the resulting tainted meat to unsuspecting folks in villages other than his own. On the other hand, ritual cleansing after having touched a frog can be rigorous.

The way the residents of this town have chosen to help one another is encouraging:

Over the past several months, residents taking their dogs for walks have been harassed by Muslim immigrants opposed to seeing the animals in public. Muslims have also launched a number of anti-dog campaigns on Islamic websites and blogs based in Spain.

In response to the “lack of sufficient police to protect the neighbourhood,” 50 local residents have established alternating six-person citizen patrols to escort people walking their dogs.

Lack of “sufficient police” protection? Quelle surprise!

In July, two Islamic groups based in Lérida asked city officials to regulate the presence of dogs in public spaces so they do not “offend Muslims.” Muslims are demanding that dogs be banned from all forms of public transportation including all city buses as well as from all areas frequented by Muslim immigrants.

Muslims in Lérida say the presence of dogs violates their religious freedom and their right to live according to Islamic principles

That’s how it goes. Muslims immigrate to another country and then demand that the country change to suit them. The Arrogant & Aggrieved, Limited. Wait. They don’t appear to have any limits. Make that A &A, Inc. The Arrogant & Aggrieved must be Accomodated or they will kill things.

This bit of apocrypha attributed to Mark Twain was in the comments at Dr. Bostom’s post:

“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a [Muslim].”

According to the rest of this entry from Hudson, Spain is not rolling over entirely:

In December 2010, Lérida became the first municipality in Spain to ban the burqa head covering in all public spaces. Women found violating the ban will be fined up to €600 ($750). One day before the ban took effect, the Catalonian Supreme Court turned down an appeal from the Watani Association for Freedom and Justice, a local Muslim group, which had argued that the ban constitutes religious discrimination.

And a most interesting end paragraph, especially the note about the funding:

In September 2010, Watani president Mourad El-Boudouhi submitted a letter to the Lérida city council in which he asked the mayor to provide him with free land so that he can build a mosque in downtown Lérida. The mosque would be financed by Morocco.

What they need in Lérida is a Spanish Mosque-Buster. He’d take put those plans out of business.

By the way, The Lawman has cheesecake. Oh my.

Relax. It's all a part of Obamacare where ridding the world of all dogs is an advanced dog-bite and rabies prevention initiative....

'Cause Muslims are soooo helpful....

Defilement and Judaic laws of cleanliness. That's what Islam's concepts of halal and haram come from. Why is a dog haram and not a camel? The feet. Nevermind that a camel is ornery and filthy.

Filth is in the mind of the beholder... and their laws.

Islam is works based and focuses on bodily/outward cleanliness. That defilement then correlates to honor and shame.

Dogs, like pigs are often opportunist feeders. They'll eat trash, carrion, etc. What the animal eats, so it is - quite the contrary to Jesus' comment which reversed/ended Mosaic laws of clean/unclean.

Of course, all of this is irrelevant to the Muslim community which seeks to use a nation's liberty against it.

On a tangential note, an interesting comparison to the minority in the US who're of the far-left variety and seek to change the whole of the nation to their desires.

Like those Spaniards not willing to go quietly in the night, more people need to wake up and not allow themselves to be doormats in the name of friendliness and multiculturalism.

Turning the other cheek and being meek doesn't mean leaving and/or turning around. Christians, conservatives and anti-Islamists need to learn this too - and many already have. Now it's time to wake up the fence-sitters and center-lefters.

Camels are ornery because they have Muslim masters.

@wadingacross: A bit of decorum, if you don't mind. No need for snarky comments about Jews just after Yom Kippur. Jews and Xtians are supposed to be on the same side (Judeochristian culture, remember?) We Jews don't force our rules on others, much less murder their beloved pets. Protection of animals is mandated in the Bible (the one all of us read, not the thin book with a similar name): that's why on the Sabbath even animals are entitled to a full day of rest, along with their owners. These commandments are the ultimate inspiration for Western laws that protect animals.

Jews are not responsible for the self-serving rules made up as he went along by an illiterate Bedouin.

Here's a blog report from 2006 on the treatment of dogs in Turkey.

It's old news, and fits perfectly with the new news, and is not for the squeamish.

Answering Islam has a page on dogs and Mohammed. I personally think he was just one of those people who really didn't like dogs, and this was one way to get rid of them.

Especially the the black ones.

Islam forbids and condemns ALL expressions of human love - whether a Muslim would love a relative, spouse, fellow Muslim, infidel, piece of art - or even a pet or wild animal.

Even Allah is to be feared rather than loved....

Juifenasie, I apologize for the evident offense taken, though to be sure it was not my intent or thought; neither was the original comment written in a snarky mood.

To my knowledge, Islam does indeed base much/all of their laws on cleanliness off of Judaism - whether Muslims understand this or not. This isn't to belittle Judaism, but it does point to Islam not being an original religion but one that piecemealed from Judaism to call its own.

Islam's laws on cleanliness can be traced back to their concepts of defilement and shame.

My comment was not focusing on Judaism other than to point out what Islam copied from it and twisted. My response was a commentary on Islam, not Judaism.

Again, I apologize at my evident offense. I readily admit that I often suffer from foot-in-mouth, especially when I don't realize it. As verbose as I can be, I often cannot find the correct things to say or phrase them poorly.

Jesus' statement about defilement, though directed to Pharisees is quite applicable to Islam.

It was not my intention to imply that Jews would kill other people's pets because they're unclean.
