Islamic Dogophobia and Our Canine Heroes

Pages: 1 2

Kalb, or dog, is one of the worst possible insults in the Muslim world. Call a man Kalb or Kalb ibn Kalb, if you want the knives to come out. In Afghanistan, those who fled the Taliban and returned to help the Coalition rebuild the country are called “Sag shouey” or “Dog washers” since Americans are infidel dogs and the Afghans who cooperate with Americans are menial servants of the dogs.

Mohammed, in addition to his affinity for pre-teen girls also had a compulsive hatred of dogs. Some Hadiths quote him ordering the killing of all dogs, others show him to be moderate ordering that only “‘black dogs” be killed. Which gives a special edge to the not uncommon description in the Muslim world of Obama as a “black dog”.

After Osama bin Laden’s execution, an imam of the Al-Aqsa mosque castigated the “Western dogs” who had done it. And as it turned out a dog actually did accompany the SEAL team that took down Osama. Unlike the billions spent on trying to win over Pakistanis and Afghans, who went on aiding terrorists anyway– the dogs remained true and loyal friends.

On September 11th, among the first responders were our four footed friends who risked their lives clambering around the smoking rubble in search of survivors. Muslims believe that an angel cannot enter a home when a dog is inside. But after the Muslims had killed thousands of Americans, it was the dogs who acted as the angels finding the bodies where they could and helping give the families of the dead something to bury.

In Afghanistan, Muslim Dogophobia can actually be an advantage for the people who befriend dogs instead of trying to mutilate them because a seventh century pedophile claimed they were unclean.

“Dogs can be used to pacify an unruly group of people — particularly in the Middle East,” says one New York Times article, while avoiding specifying who that unruly group of people may be, and why they need pacifying.

In the UK, Muslims have gotten themselves exempted from contact with bomb sniffing dogs on religious grounds– if they can only find a reason why metal detectors are also against their religion, then the sky is theirs.

When Muslims plot terrorist attacks, it is the bomb sniffing dogs who serve as the front line of defense against them. Military dogs walk the front lines searching out Taliban explosives and have become primary targets of enemy snipers. At airports, we would do much better to fire the TSA’s gropers and luggage thieves, and dump the naked scanners, and replace them with dogs. The enemy may fool our politicians, our clergy and our law enforcement– but they will never fool a dog.

How can a dog tell the difference between a Muslim and a non-Muslim even when there are no racial or ethnic differences? There may be no physical differences, but there are moral ones. It may be the casual cruelty that Islam inculcates in its followers that is as visible in the body language and attitude to a sensitive animal– as a gun is to an airport metal detector.

In Iran, visitors tell of dogs who could distinguish between Zoroastrians and Muslims; “In Sharifabad the dogs distinguished clearly between Moslem and Zoroastrian, and were prepared to go…full of hope, into a crowded Zoroastrian assembly, or to fall asleep trustfully in a Zoroastrian lane, but would flee as before Satan from a group of Moslem boys.”

In the Islamic Republic of Iran, the dog is still a particular object of Muslim hatred. In Tehran an Islamic judge sentenced a 70 year old man to four months in jail and thirty lashes for walking his dog. And the parliament is once again tackling a law to outlaw dogs for posing a “cultural problem”.

This particular “cultural problem” has been exported with Islamic immigration as cabbies deny rides to the blind because their seeing eye dogs will keep angels out of their cabs. Blind passengers have been thrown off public buses by Muslim bus drivers and disabled people in all walks of life have faced harassment due to Islamic ‘Dogophobia’ which translates easily into bigotry against disabled people.

The “cultural problem” doesn’t begin or end with dogs. One Hadith states; “When one of you prays without a sutrah, a dog, an ass, a pig, a Jew, a Magian, and a woman cut off his prayer.” Along with Dogophobia, the teachings of Islam also cultivate Anti-Semitism and Sexism. All far more serious problems than the constant defensive refrain of Islamophobia taken up by Muslim groups and their media panderers.

    Dogs have been around for thousands of yours. Mohammed, only 1400 years. I'll stick with my dog.

    • intrcptr2

      There is this.

      And this; http://www.thetruthaboutpitbulls.org/

      • mlcblog

        Pit bulls are bloodthirsty and wicked when stirred up. It's in their nature. Dobermans are the same. Both of these breeds are very sweet at home with their masters but once their hunting/killing instincts are aroused they go after their smaller or weaker warmblooded prey with unerring predatory instinct. It is a fact that I have observed multiple times, our Dobies being aroused by our flock of roaming bantie chickens and also running through weeds with a whooping sound to roust out rabbits or any other small prey. Our family had a next door neighbor whose child was actually killed by the family Doberman. She was small and had been left out in the yard with the dog. The family checked on them only too late. The dog had killed the child, so your site here may be nice and want us to not say anything about these nice dogs I just say please watch them closely when around small animals of any sort!! Others beware.

    • mlcblog

      Notwithstanding the antiquity issue, dogs are far more civilized when befriended by a human that Mohammed was, or even in the wild I think the dogs act better than he did.

  • Larry

    Given the rest of the pedophiles sexual proclivities and foibles, I've always thought that ol' Mo's hatred of dogs quite like stemmed from him getting bitten as a rebuff for sexual advances.

    • intrcptr2

      I might suggest that the dogs knew of his traffickinng with demons.

      • AvantiBev

        Exactly right intrcptr2! "Gabriel" tells Mo he could not visit him the night before because Mo had been staying with a man who kept dogs inside his tent/home. well, WHO would be afraid of dogs more than Satan? Dogs KNOW. I have shared 30 years with them and I have seen them react to something I could not see, hear, taste or smell.

    • kafir4life

      Interesting point Larry. Dogs probably did rebuff the muslims pedophilic madman prophet mohamat's (peanut butter under ham) sexual demands, while he worshipped the moon god allah (sh*t with toast). He did do better with pigs, because of the resemblence.

  • Amused

    Dogs have been "man's best freind " throughout the millenia .They have guarded villages , with their barked warnings , truly the most noble beast on the planet . No surprise at all that such a vile cult , would revile dogs . Their loyalty is peerless and their perception of hatred and evil intentions uncanny . No wonder they are hated by "the religion of peace " They actually laugh , and are indeed capable of love , two more things anti-thetical to the mohamadan cult .

  • 9-11 Infidel

    "From the dogs who walk the front lines in Afghanistan to the rescue dogs who took the lead at Ground Zero, to the animals who are tortured and murdered every day in the Muslim world– we can learn courage, loyalty and friendship. While the media insists on telling us how much we can learn from Islam– there is more of goodness, decency and honor to be learned from a dog, than there is from the entire Koran." Hear Hear !!

  • catmann

    I adore my two golden retrievers. My "Boys" as I call them are my constant companion and I almost never go anywhere without them. I recall flying throught Dulles which is filthy with Muslims (they seem to run the place) and the Mohamedans gave them wide berth. Hmm dogs can be used as a Muslim repellant. Sounds good to me.

    • muchiboy

      Interesting,that you love your dogs so but consider Muslims filth.On this site,considering what the Jewish people have endured ,I am dumbfounded how you could say such horrible things about a people when others have and likely still do say similar things about Jews.muchiboy

      • Guest

        You are unfortunately ignorant. We hate ISLAME. Not the practitioner.

        • Danny

          Hey guest, re-read catmann's hate-filled rantings about Muslims and then tell us whether catmann and you share the same attitude toward Islam's practitioners.
          Either you don't or you're a liar or an idiot.

      • 9-11 Infidel

        Hate-filled eh: Oh you mean like "Tabari 9:69 "Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us" The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam. Or maybe – Allah's Apostle said… 'I have been made victorious with terror' (Bukhari 52:220) Or maybe this one is more to your liking: Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him." (Bukhari 52:177). Yeah I think it is. Islam is no religion of anything. It is a supremacist philosophy akin to Nazism that should be wiped from the face of the earth. Is that hatred or self-preservation? I think the latter is correct.

        • Danny

          I was responding to guest's contention that "we" don't hate Islam's practitioners, which obviously doesn't describe catmann's position as well as that of many of the posters here. You can choose to profess whatever you want. Just be honest about what or who you would like to "wipe from the face of the earth". As for me, I'm happy to acknowledge the violent passages found in some of Islam's writings. But I prefer that decent Muslims who don't subscribe to that part of Islam work to cleanse their religion of it or at least tactfully disown it, much as Jews and Christians have successfully done with regard to certain violent passages in the Bible (e.g. Numbers 31). Better that than declare war on roughly 1/5 of mankind. Call me silly but if anything can be called a needless and losing proposition, it's that.

          • mlcblog

            We Christians do not eschew any portion of the Bible. What are you talking about? It is a whole and complete work.

          • 9-11 Infidel

            Violent hate-filled passages in Christianity? That's laughable on its face. There isn't a single one in the NT. And the OT? There is no open-ended directive to destroy the enemies of Israel as there is in the Koran and the Sunna to destroy or subjigate all non-Muslims. There absolutely no comparison between the lunacy of Islam vs the New or Old Testament. As to the so-called peaceful Muslims, exactly where are they? I don't see any "peaceful" Muslim protests against the Third Great Jihad.. All I keep hearing are platitudes from Muslim apologists and the tagiya merchants at CAIR and their affiliates. Truth be told, PM Erdogen was right: "The Term 'Moderate Islam' Is Ugly And Offensive; There Is No Moderate Islam; Islam Is Islam." Islam is nothing more than Nazism wrapped around a false religious construct. It matters not, what "some" Islamics believe, it only matters what they do about that belief. And too many are willing to commit murder and mayhem on a global scale, while others sit back and cheer while giving their zakat to terrorists.

    First of all, I would like to propose a promotion that could help bring these loyal friends of our troops to a loving home in America. I've suggested to M&Ms (with no response so far) that they create a campaign in association with the ISPCA featuring a special packet and candies in camouflage colors. Proceeds from this promotion would help defray the cost of getting the dogs who have befriended and been befriended by our troops out of these muslim hell holes so they are not left to the tender mercies of people who abuse and kill them. I know I'd buy such candies to support the effort. If anyone has influence to bring this to M&Ms attention (or that of other companies), please feel free to suggest this, as well.

    Then, as a woman who thinks it's not a bad idea to carry a little dog carrier with a plush puppy in it so I can avoid muslim cabbies, I would like to propose a few new business models:

    1) FIDO AIR – Motto: Fly with FIDO!!! This is an airline that allows people to fly with their pets in the main cabin of an airliner. Special pet carriers would clamp into place beside each chair, allowing your dog, cat, etc. to fly with you, eliminating anxiety for both dog and owner. Each plane would feature a free-roaming, bomb-sniffing dog. The plus side of this is that muslims would avoid flying on this airline, thus eliminating the need for x-rays and groping.

    2) BLACK LAB CAB – This is a new cab company in which a black lab rides "shotgun" in the front seat of each cab – and would have an "ornament" of a lighted black Lab on top. This would eliminate not only muslim fares (who wants them?), but would deter theft and assaults against cab drivers.

    3) HOTEL LABRADOR – Preferably located next door to the Ground Zero mosque-strosity. Specializes in dog-friendly accommodations for the business traveler.

    Anyone who'd like to make these ideas a reality, be my guest. I know I'd be happy to patronize your businesses.

    • Clare

      WAY!

    • Linda Rivera

      Good ideas, but instead of the candy (lots of people can't have sugar and other bad stuff), healthy nuts, instead! Try contacting a nut company!

  • dan

    I have three dogs and they keep an eye and ear on everything around my property. And yes, they do react differently to guests. For some they are not friendly too and keep the "evil eye" on them. Lastly, when I was in Vietnam my unit had several 'mascots' (dogs). At my compound, we used several Vietnamese civilian employees. Whenever the Vietnamese workers came in close proximity. the dogs invariably alerted and barked; barked and in some cases growled at them. It was attributed to the fact that Vietnamese (in Vietnam) apparently had no compunction against eating dogs.

    • http://www.intellectualconservative.com Steven Laib

      It is primarily in the north that eating dogs is considered a delicacy. In the south the average person blames it on the northerners inability to prepare high quality food. My wife is from the Mekong delta and has given me a briefing on the matter.

    Dog heroes are an integral part of our past and present history. Stories about them are turned into books and movies, statues are built in their memory and medals are given to them. They are our beloved companions. America is the best. Greenfield's blunt contrast should leave no doubt. For the last few decades, free countries have begun to protect all animals from cruelty. This is light years from the Medieval Submissionists who are mired in cruelty to all sentient beings; these countries are the worst and have nothing to recommend them.
    How can the Followers of Mohammed be Americans since they hate dogs (I know the list is long)? Americans love dogs.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Americans respect loyalty and affection. In much of the Middle East, that earns you contempt as weak. A dog.

    • http://www.intellectualconservative.com Steven Laib

      We have Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and other dog heroes in our entertainment history. A testament to the positive role of the dog in our culture

  • Rifleman

    Westerners are such suckers for pc absurdities. Maybe I just missed it, but I haven’t seen muslims protesting or objecting to the use of dogs to rescue them or their loved ones from under rubble after earthquakes.

    • mlcblog

      Of course not.

  • Clare

    OK, I've been criticized already by some of my acquaintances for my comment
    "Americans love dogs." So I will qualify:
    Many Americans are dog guardians or have working dogs. They love dogs and or, yes, as you, Mr. Greenfield succinctly wrote, they respect their loyalty and affection. Many Americans do not have a dog and do not intend to have a dog because they do not care for them. These persons, however, support their care and good treatment by guardians, shelters, and support anti-cruelty laws and enforcement. Haters of dogs who maim, torture and abuse them are criminals in America. Cruelty to dogs is against the law here and abusers are prosecuted. My point is that good citizens are largely caring and compassionate toward animals in varying degrees and this attitude and behavior is enforced by our laws.

  • Linda Rivera

    To hate innocent humanity, dogs and other animals is to HATE the G-D who so LOVINGLY created them. In the Garden of Eden, dogs and other animals were the companions and best friends of Adam and Eve.

    Only G-D knows the immense number of human lives saved by dogs. And the many dogs who courageously gave up their lives, fighting to save their owners. Heroes, indeed! This is in addition to the affection, companionship and unconditional, undying love dogs have for their owners.

    Thank you, G-D, for your precious gift of dogs!

  • johnnywoods

    In my life I have trusted many dogs but never a Muslim.

  • jasonz

    why do we let muslims live? seriously! anything that has love, beauty, freedom is automatically deemed evil and either killed or destroyed. mulsims are filthy sub-human cowardly monsters and seek to remake the whole world into their own personal hell. the world be far better off if every man, woman, and child of islam was eliminated. i look forward to the day when the worls wakes up and begins to clean house!

    • mlcblog

      This is very alarming to me. Muslims are at least people, and as such we are bound to respect them, if not their views.

      • kafir4life

        mlcblog, jasonz is a libtarb, possibly even a plant from the terrorist supporters over at the terrorist supporting hamas-linked cair. They'll come to sites like this, and post things like sheik jasonz post in order to then come back and say "see??!!"

  • Anamah

    Dogs are so dear! I miss animals so much… Life was much better living with them around. Stupid and coward Mos., so sadistic beating animals and women, and persecuting "infidels". I miss all the dogs I had, they were a big part of my life and gave me so much. How can this angels be so trustful and patient? I would like to create a beautiful place to shelter as many dogs in needs can, a safe heaven for them to play, be happy running free through the trees, where each and everyone enjoy themselves as a pack. A place to remember how stupid Mo are, so ignorant unable to appreciate love. There embracing and fondle their warm coat and knowing how lucky we are to live in America, where friendship can be celebrate with hugs and laughs.
    I'll need to win the lottery… But until then I miss the certainty of their loyalty and affection so pure, so deep and tender. My Gosh!!!
    The world has a hole of emptiness when you need a hug, to embrace a furry 4 legs sweetheart to care and love , how much miss them!!! Fanatic Mo., they do not see the beauty of life.

  • American Amused

    40% of serial killers started out torturing animals , about the same for violent criminals . Kinda says something about people who are cruel to animals .
    And although it sounds anecdotal , it is true that more can be learned from dogs about loyalty , respect , forgiveness , tolerance ,and intuition , than from many fellow humans . Even in satire the amazing character quality of dogs is expounded, my favorite ?

    What I was told of Mohammed's hatred for dogs — and I do not know how accurate this is — is that one day he observed a dog ingesting its own feces, and was deeply revulsed thereby. Can anyone here clarify this?

    • Whitehunter

      I think the likely explanation for this episode (assuming it happened at all, unlike most of the Koran's preposterous gibberish) is as follows: The dog quite sensibly recognized that its own feces were cleaner and more nourishing, and smelled better, than any doctrines or exhortations that issued from Mohammed's mouth–or that would issue from the mouth of any raving ayatollah for the next 14 centuries.

  • FredBaehr

    Muslims hate dogs and I understand because I despise Islam. I don't hate Muslim individuals but I do hate the backward medievalism of the Koran. Devout Muslims will tell you that their's is the only (good true right real) religion but you can't tell them they follow a false prophet without insulting them. Its not quite equitable.
    All this fuss over a bunch of ancient babbling about a way to look at reality that we all know is false. All the so-called prophets were talking to themselves when they thought they heard God speak. All the so-called prophesies failed to come to pass, yet get reinterpreted over and over, century after century in the vain hope that they will still come true and belief will be vindicated. But we are all familiar now with Einstein's definition of insanity as, "… doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result".
    We live at a pivotal time. The Gods ruled over 10,000 years of civilization, but in just the last hundred years we have finally and for the first time come to understand the ways in which the world is really constructed and how it actually works. But one hundred years is only 1% of the 10,000 years we have been trying to construct civilization, so we are still very uncomfortable with the idea that we have begun to know the real truth at last. So we appeal to sophistic arguments to the effect that anything is (still) possible, so we mustn't think to condemn anything having to do with a person's "beliefs".
    Muslims believe dogs keep the angels out of their cabs? How do we know they don't?
