Suicide Dog Bombs

Iraqi insurgents have been strapping explosives to dogs and sending them off to Iraqi police positions to detonate by remote control.

Rasha Khairir, 25, an employee of a Baghdad stock brokerage, objects, "How can they use these lovely pets for criminal and murderous acts? A poor dog can't refuse what they are doing with him because he can't think and decide." However, the same can be said of the regular Saudi suicide bomber, who is no smarter than a beagle.

And, of course, there is the typical hypocritical statement that such practices are un-Islamic. Abdel Salam Kubaisi, spokesman for the Muslim Scholars Association, a group of Sunni Arab clerics rooting for the insurgents, "Our religion does not permit us to hurt animals, neither by using them as explosive devices nor in any other manner." Mr. Kubaisi had no statement on whether it was permissible for Muslims to hurt infidels.
