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 neighborhoods 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. 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 neighborhood, 50 local residents have established alternating six-person citizen patrols to escort people walking their dogs. 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. Lawmakers in Tehran have proposed a bill in parliament that would criminalize dog ownership, formally enshrining its punishment within the country’s Islamic penal code. The bill warns that that in addition to posing public health hazards, the popularity of dog

ownership “also poses a cultural problem, a blind imitation of the vulgar culture of the West.” The proposed legislation for the first time outlines specific punishments for “the walking and keeping” of “impure animals.” The law would see the offending animal confiscated and would be gassed to death and there would be an imposition of a $100to-$500 fine on the owner. If passed, the law would energize police and volunteer Islamist militias to enforce the ban systematically. This is what happens when Shar’ia law becomes the law of the land. The society become homogenous and everyone loses their individuality and becomes a Koranbot. In order to understand Shar’ia one must go to the the Qur’an and to the recollections of those who had the misfortune to come into contact with Mo – the Hadiths. There is no mention of dogs in Qur’an but in the Hadiths it is clear dogs are “man’s worst friend” and any contact with them is contaminating yourself with filth. If the saliva of a dog touches you or any part of your clothing, then Islam requires you to wash the body part touched and the item of clothing touched by the dog’s mouth or snout. From Muslim #055 Ibn Mughaffal reported: “[Mohammad] said: When the dog licks the utensil, wash it seven times, and rub it with earth the eighth time.” Seven times? Then rub it with dirty soil the eighth time? This animal is more disgusting then dirt. The Reliance of the Traveller is a classical manual of fiqh for the Shafi'i school of Islamic jurisprudence." It codifies Islamic law. Dogs are listed as "filth" in the Reliance of the Traveller. They are number 8 along with pigs, and somewhere in there, is "pus" as also being filth. Check out Sahih Muslim Book 24, Number 5248: Maimuna reported that one morning Mohammad was silent with grief. Maimuna said: Allah’s Messenger, I find a change in your mood today. Allah’s Messenger said: Gabriel had promised me that he would meet me tonight, but he did not meet me. By Allah, he never broke his promises, and Allah’s Messenger spent the day in this sad (mood). Then it occurred to him that there had been a puppy under their cot. He commanded and it was turned out. He then took some water in his hand and sprinkled it at that place. When it was evening Gabriel met him and he said to him: you promised me that you would meet me the previous night. He said: Yes, but we do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture. Then on that very morning he commanded the killing of the dogs until he announced that the dog kept for the orchards should also be killed, but he spared the dog meant for the protection of extensive fields (or big gardens). So Mo himself once had a pet (unless the pooch wandered in his tent) but Mo put the puppy out on the Arab street to die. Then he realized it was so freaking unclean that even the minute traces it left behind had to be purged. After he did this the Angel Gabriel confirmed that what he had done was right and Mo ordered all the dogs killed with some exceptions for the rich land owners. Other Hadiths confirm this one: From Bukhari Vol. 4, #540 “Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: Allah's Apostle ordered that the

dogs should be killed.” Now dig this. Not only did Mo dislike dogs in general, he especially disliked Black dogs. From Abu Dawud #2839 “Abd Allah B. Mughaffal reported the apostle of Allah as saying: Were dogs not a species of creature I should command that they all be killed; but kill every pure black one.” The Hadith's note for #2839 says, "The prophet did not order the killing of all the dogs, for some are to be retained for hunting and watching. He ordered to kill the jet black ones. They might be more mischievous among them.” What difference did it make if their coat was black? Was Mo’s pet dog black? Because dogs have been seen as impure many Muslims have used this view to justify the abuse and neglect of dogs. So if you are a pet owner you should have a real fear of Islam as it is the fastest growing “religion” in the world. Below is a site you will never see:
