Egyptian Clerics Issue First ‘Fatwa’ Since Brotherhood Takeover: Don’t Kill Frogs
By Raymond Ibrahim – “Following the presidential victory of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muhammad Morsi, the very first fatwa to appear by Egypt’s highest fatwa council addresses—not social, political, or economic issues in Egypt—but rather frogs. Specifically, it bans Muslims from hunting and killing frogs to sell to those nations that dine on the amphibians. As the fatwa explains, according to Islam’s prophet Muhammad as recorded in a hadith, a frog’s ‘croaking is praise [to Allah].’ Accordingly, ‘a number of jurists [fuqaha] have relied on this [hadith] to forbid the eating of frogs, under the notion that ‘that which is banned from being killed, is forbidden from being eaten.’
Unlike the many other fatwas dealing with other animals, including cartoon characters—such as the fatwa to kill Mickey Mouse—this frog fatwa is ostensibly humanitarian. Yet, in reality, it only proves how enslaved Muslim societies are to the random words of their prophet—a prophet who, on one occasion ordered the killing of all black dogs because they are ‘devils,’ while making frogs sacrosanct for praising Allah with their croaks—a prophet who, to non-Muslims, was just a 7th century Arab, whose words, obvious reflections of a 7th century mentality, millions of people still cling to today—a prophet who is at the heart of the international dilemma widely known as ‘radical Islam.’” Source – Jihad Watch.
Flashback: Egyptian Clerics Call Jews ‘Apes And Pigs … Making Our Children Loathe The Jews Is a Form of Worship of Allah’ – “There are very many traits that characterize the Jews, and the Koran focused on a few of them, such as the violation of commitments, from which we suffer to this day. Not just us in Egypt — the entire world suffers from this. Another trait is their hard-heartedness, God forbid. If you want to know what true hard-heartedness means, go to the Jews. You will find a lot of it there. Allah punished them by transforming them into apes and pigs, and by prohibiting them from eating several edible things… The [Jews] are treacherous… We must be resolute and fill hearts with hatred and loathing.” Read more.
