Starving Syrians are told to eat dogs, cats and donkeys
Clerical fatwa permits starving Syrians to eat dogs, cats and donkeys
A group of clerics in Syria have issued a fatwa giving starving men,women and children permission to eat cats, dogs and donkeys if theyhave nothing else to eat. The fatwa is directed to suburbs ofDamascus where Syria’s psychopathic president Bashar al-Assad isconducting a siege, refusing to allow aid convoys to enter. At thesame time, the cleric pleaded for humanitarian help:
“How does the world sleep with full stomachs whilethere are hungry people, and not far from the main city[Damascus], just few meters way.
Haven’t you heard the fatwas (religious edicts) that have filledour streets and mosques by permitting people to eat cats, dogs andother animals that have already been killed by the bomb attacks?
Are you waiting for us to eat the flesh of our martyrs and ourdead after fearing our lives? … You have forgot that you havebrothers and sisters in southern Damascus who arehungry.”
The last paragraph refers to cannibalism.
