Islamic Cleric Issues Fatwa Against Dog Owners

Thursday, August 26, 2010

As if you need another reason to despise radical Islam comes this pip from Iran.

Iranian authorities are cracking down, but this time their target isn’t gay people or political dissidents or drug traffickers. It’s dogs. Or more precisely, dog owners.

This week, Ayatollah Nasser Makkarem Shirazi, a powerful cleric, issued a fatwa that was later passed into law banning any advertisements about pets or alluding to the buying, selling or keeping of pets.

Isn’t Islam great?

In June Shirazi issued the fatwa against keeping dogs as pets, although that ruling was not made into law. At the time, Shirazi slammed dog owners for “blindly imitating the West,” which, he said, would result in “evil outcomes.”

The fatwa cites Islamic tradition, which says dogs are unclean based on testimonies from the followers of the prophet Mohammad known as hadith.

Dog ownership is popular among middle class Iranians, especially among well-to-do urban families. Although pet dogs are not technically illegal, walking a dog in a public place like a park can earn the owner a hefty fine.

Add dog ownership to the growing list of examples why radical Islam is not like other religions and will never have a place in American society.

Is this the sort of garbage Imam Rauf and his followers will be teaching in Park51 in lower Manhattan if it is allowed to be built against the wishes of 2/3rds of New York City residents?

I am hereby issuing a fatwa on this blog against radical Islam.

    Heeeeeeeeeeey, I have an idea…. Instead of Nuking them as I originally wanted to do. Let’s drop a hude load od Dog SH*T on them!

  2. Big Hank says:

    So I trust no dogs will be allowed at Park51 when and if Rauf gets it built?

    You know, I try to be tolerant. I understand all of the world isn’t the same but you had best not try to harm my dogs or you may wind up with a bullet strategically placed between your eyes.

    And yes, this goes for Obama’s buddies in Lower Manhattan.

    ISLAMIC Tenant….. “If you’re enjoying any facet of your life, we will crush you!”

  4. TOM339 says:

    The more we learn about the face of Islam, the uglier it becomes and the less compatible it is with the west.

    Sadly, I’m sure it’s just a matter of time until a news report comes along detailing how groups of Islamic mobs, drunk on the Quran and loyal to the fatwa banded together to slaughter innocent pets in Tehran, all in the name of the great Allah.

    Too bad the U.S. didn’t stop this mess over there when we still had the opportunity. Now, it is only a matter of time until radical Islam is in our backyard.

    The Islamic calendar froze a thousand years ago and no one wishes to fix the mechanism. If there ever is a rating for religions that foster intolerance, hate and deceit it’s leader has to be Islam. Yes, there are many Islamic teaching that are benevolent. The problem is they coexist with “back to the cave” philosophies.

  6. feminazi says:

    As a retired Jewish woman who lost family members to Hitler in WWII in the holocaust, I know all too well what happens when religious extremism and blind nationalism informs public policy. I have lived my life trying to be accepting and tolerant of others, and yes, this includes Muslims and Islam. But it should clear to everyone on this blog and beyond that radical Islam can not peacefully coexist with the west. Radical Islam exists to try and destroy the west and all we stand for. Fatwas against dog ownership? Are these people out of their God damned minds?

  7. Eric Equality Kuntz says:

    Americans will swallow a lot of bullshit but don’t even think of fucking with our dogs.

    If the U.S. nukes Iran, I hope the bomb is covered with pictures of every AKC breed of dog known to exist.

  8. Jolly Roger says:

    This is, in substance, no different than biblical prohibitions on shellfish (that clam you ate last night was an ABOMINATION.)

    Islam, per se, is not the problem here. ALL fundamentalist religions are evil. Period.

  9. Pechanga says:

    Christopher, thanks for keeping us up to date on the latest from the world of radical Islam.

    There is a concerted effort on the part of the media and the Federal government to whitewash radical Islam and make their beliefs acceptable to middle class Americans. This started after 9/11 and it looks as if it isn’t going to abate anytime soon.

  10. Hendrik Moller says:

    Islam is full off shit. There will be less shit on the planet if this religion is eradicated, like pests. My middle to them.

  11. Hendrik Moller says:

    I meant “Islam is full of shit.”

  12. Mets Fan says:

    Maybe President Obama’s beloved Imam Rauf can tell the USA if dog ownership is “Sharia compliant?”

    If not, would the dear Imam advocate Americans kill their family pets in an act of goodwill for Mohammed?

  13. Harry says:

    Islam can suck it.

  14. R.J. says:

    I have a great idea. Drop a bomb on them but not the violent kind. Do what we used to do in WWII when we dropped leaflets except drop all the porn and cheap booze we can find. Especially gay porn. I bet it would go over real well with them. [/sarcasm]

  15. MichaelTAtheist says:

    Hey, I just had another ‘Brilliant Idea’ Let’s get women to parade, naked, around all of their Mousques…………..! Only here in the US….of course. In Iran, or any other Mooselim country, they’d be beheaded. You know women are only good for one thing over there…….. Pushing out a new Sand Monkey every year!

  16. Freak says:

    Mohammed is the biggest dog and Islam his shit hole and the Quaran his loo paper.

  17. Jonathon Edwards says:

    Radical christianity teaches against the full inclusion of gays and lesbians in society. It, too, will never be compatible with American society. If we follow this logic. I call bullshit on the lot of you. Just like every religion, Islam absorbs artifacts of the culture around it. That makes this about Iranian culture, not Islam. As the article notes, many muslims own dogs and don’t see that as a violation of their religious tenets. Condemn the culture if you must – as I do, being a dog person myself – but leave Islam alone. Blame the excesses of some of its adherents on the adherents, not the religion they use to justify their cultural biases.

  18. Estacada says:

    This is really a tragedy because now people living in Iran will either give away their dogs, or fear putting them in the car to take them to the vet for medical care.

    In the 1960’s and 1970’s, Communist China banned dog ownership and hundreds of thousands of dogs were killed.

    Organized religion is evil. Plain and simple. But Islam is the worst.

  19. Just Wondering says:

    Just wondering who the FREAK Islamic Cleric is. FUCK GET A LIFE you are a fucking nut case and YOU belong is some sort of a mental institution. Gee YOU are A NUT JOB and A FREAK! Fatwa my brown arce. F(reaks) A(gain) T(o) W(affle) A(loud) – FATWA 🙂

  20. Just Wondering says:

    Ayatollah Nasser Makkarem you are A FREAK OF NATURE or maybe your ARE JUST DUMB?

  21. Tiny Dancer says:

    Jonathon Edwards — What’s dat? You don’t even try to hide your homophobia?

    You would make a fine Muslim. You know, in Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia, they stone and hang gay people to death. I bet that fills you with a deep feeling of glee.

  22. Stephan Iversonn says:

    Remember Obama’s speech in Cairo?

    Obama’s Arabic Teleprompter – Imam Rauf!

    In a stunning revelation, it appears that the controversial Imam Feizel Rauf has been quite instrumental in the crafting of the speech that Obama gave in Cairo.

    This report comes from Walid Shoebat who speaks fluent Arabic. It is a shocking audio recording of Rauf’s own voice boasting in Arabic that Obama’s historic speech in Cairo was provided by the Imam’s work with the Cordova Initiative

    Once a terrorist, Walid Shoebat is now an American citizen and lives in the USA under this assumed

  23. MichaelTAtheist says:

    Wow, the Ideas keep popping into my head…. Wht don’t some Iranian dog owners get some Pit Bulls and train them to kill Mooselimb Clerics…………….????

  24. Kate Novotny says:

    My overall opinion of Islam will improve dramatically when Islam stops persecuting women, gays, lesbians, transgendered people, and now dog owners and dogs. Until this happens, the New York Times can stick their apologist op-ed pieces where the sun don’t shine.

  25. DMason says:

    Radical Islam may have successfully brought Mayor Bloomberg, President Obama, the New York Times and MSNBC to their knees but, this fatwa against dog owners will surely engender the wrath of PETA and I know PETA very well. They will not back down to some filthy, bearded towel head with Hummus breath dissing dogs. This is a war Radical Islam will lose.

  26. Matteo says:

    Here’s another one for the Islamic bonfire.

    Saudi Cleric Calls for Boycott of Supermarket Chain Who Hires Women Cashiers

    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia – Saudi Arabia’s most senior religious leader has ordered a conservative cleric to stop giving unauthorized edicts after his call for boycotting a supermarket chain that employs women as cashiers.

    Sheik Youssef al-Ahmed had urged people not to shop at Panda Supermarket because women there work in jobs that allow for the mingling of the sexes. Al-Ahmed says this is a violation of Islamic law.

  27. Jolly Roger says:

    And like clockwork, a Jesusistani chimes in with a post from American “Thinker” that supposedly “proves” the President is a muslim.

    You know women are only good for one thing over there…….. Pushing out a new Sand Monkey every year!

    Nice. But why not have some balls, and just call them all sand n____rs? You know you want to.

  28. Chad Lebanon says:

    Fatwa? Fatwa?

    What the fuck century do these Islamic clerics think we’re living in? Pssst, douchebags, it’s 2010, not 1010.

  29. Randy Arroyo says:

    I’m with Kate Novotny. If Imam Rauf and American Islamics wants to rebrand how their seen in the US, it is up to them to stop the bullshit and commitment to the Dark Ages. Otherwise, I have no use for them.

  30. LM says:

    Here’s where you end up…England just a few years further along than we are:

    “A police force has apologised to the Muslim community after its ad campaign featuring a puppy sparked an outcry.”

  31. Adirondacky says:

    Americans feel a profoundly close relationship with their dogs. Attack our dogs or dog ownership and you had best prepare to be bombed into oblivion. The Iranian cleric is provincial and has a lot to learn about the world beyond Iran. He isn’t very bright.

  32. Greg Equality Lengkong says:

    Radical Islam and America will never be one, big happy family.

    The sooner the left realizes this and stops trying to push the teachings of the Quran down our throats, the better off everyone will be.

  33. Dale L. Suyeishi says:

    I can’t believe there are a few radical Islamic martyrs posting here? Radical Islam is incompatible with what the USA stands for.

  34. lea-lea says:

    Dale L. Suyeishi,

    I know. We even have one in the White House!

  35. Newman says:

    You guys can open your mouth wide and say whatever your head thinks, but the fact is that there is nothing you can do to the fastest growing religion in the world. Take a Qurán and you will be better informed.

  36. Newman says:

    Just because someone has posted an unconfirmed report, you guys are insulting muslims and islam, this clearly shows how a people can be so gullible and jobless. Get a comprehensive and detailed copy of the said fatwa and you would be surprised what it actually contains.
