No Love For You!!!

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Right when I think I have read it all I come across the story linked below... :confused: Talk about control freaks that use killing as a method of fear for the purpose of compliance to backwards conservative hatred. Please reply with your thoughts...

Backwards? Uhhhhh a BIG yes.

Quote 1: [quote]<strong>"A dog trained to carry messages between two Jordanian lovers has been stoned to death after his secret mission was discovered."<hr></blockquote></strong>

Quote 2: [quote]<strong>"The "canine Cupid" was buried in the owner's back yard in the town of Zarqa, 27 kilometres (17 miles) north-east of the Jordanian capital Amman."<hr></blockquote></strong>

    Don't reduce his post to that simplistic reaction . . . there is obviously something wrong with the scenerio of stoning a dog to death for its delivering notes!!

    Perhaps he is refering to that thing that is wrong beyond the facile notion that it is Islam itself . . .

    What i find interesting is that the dog was killed out of rage because it started to attack the girsls brother and yet teh media is couching it in such a way as to make it seem to be teh work of those dastardly Islamites . . . .

    even though there are awful "honor killings" it appears that the dogs death had nothing to do with that sort of thing at all . . . except that the girls brother wanted to know what was up with the notes and got attacked . . .

    hm? interesting story . . . not as interesting as it would have been if it really turned out to be that the daog was killed for being imoral . . . now that would have been interesting :eek:

    ...otherwise its a mole-hill-mountain of propaganda

    I wish it weren't so reactionary to dismiss Fellowship's posts. Maybe I'm blind, but I don't see how this says anything about Islam specifically.

    Granted, it does hint that people living in the area nearby palestine/israel seem to have violent tendencies, but I wouldn't be so quick to turn that into an islam vs. christianity thread.

    I hate journalists that leave out the vital parts of the story.


    After he snatched the marriage proposal from the dog, the brother became violent.

    The dog apparently attacked the man, who then smashed his head with a stone before vowing to run to his sister's suitor to threaten him with the same fate. <hr></blockquote>

    Is it just me, or is it a sign of the kind of world we live in, that I find it far easier to believe that the man attacked and killed the dog without provocation than the obedient, well trained dog picking a fight.

    I have no idea what Fellowship is talking about though. I'm happy to condemn this as another boring muslim bashing thread unless Fellowship can explain his comments.
