All Frogs Praise Allah

All Frogs Praise Allah

A fatwa has been issued in Egypt to prevent the killing of frogs for consumption.

Egypt has recently been through a revolution. Earlier this month, the country swore in its first democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi.

Now, Morsi and the country’s ruling Muslim Brotherhood have moved on to more important business: Egypt’s highest fatwa council has issued its first fatwa under new rule to ban Muslims from killing frogs. A fatwa is a juristic ruling concerning Islamic law.

Specifically, the fatwa reportedly orders that Muslims may not kill frogs to sell to Nations where they are eaten.

According to Jihad Watch, “the fatwa explains, according to Islam’s prophet Muhammad as recorded in a hadith, a frog’s ‘croaking is praise [to Allah].’ Accordingly, ‘a number of jurists [fuqaha] have relied on this [hadith] to forbid the eating of frogs, under the notion that ‘that which is banned from being killed, is forbidden from being eaten.’”

Animal-related fatwas in the past have ordered radical Islamists to kill Mickey Mouse and to kill all black dogs, among some animal rights decrees.

      ain’t it the truth

    • Nadzieja Batki

      There must be quite a demand for the frogs for the export market. This nutcase wants to control the market and put all his relatives in the export business.

    • Mike Robinson

      Laus Deus indeed! SF Brother

  • Shorty

    No frogs, just dogs. Must be taking this order from King Obama himself.

    • RUBEN PAGES

      SHORTY , WHY DO YOU HAVE TO STCK OBAMA ON THE FROG/EGIPT ISSUE? WHAT DOES IT HAVE TO DO WITH THE PRICE OF THE EGGS IN CHINA??

      • http://http//yahoo.com sophillyjimmy

        Arsehole, if you don’t know by now, Obama wrote in his book that he ate dogs with his father or some other guy that his mother was shacking up with at some time in Obama’s wife, that is why Shorty mentioned about eting dogs, it had relavince to the article, got it now jerk off?

      • RUBEN PAGES

        SOPHILLYJIMMI, GO BACK TO TO SKOO AND LEARN HOW TO SPELL.

      • Shorty

        Hey slick, I wouldn’t be trashing other people’s spelling if I were you. How do you spell “stick” and “Egypt” ?? (talk about the pot calling the kettle black). And just to let you know, your CAPS LOCK KEY IS STUCK.

      • azJimmy

        You mean “cost of leggs in China” …. as in frog leggs ?

      • http://wildeyguns.com The Christian Americam

        The Muslims should wise up. The Jews put a U with a circle around it or K on everything sold which costs as much as 7 1/2 of the sale price. Put a symbol on the frogs and when they’re sold rake it in.

      • Wumingren

        It’s so funny to see someone complain about someone else’s spelling when they type using all capital letters and misspell words as well.

      • Joe H

        Wumington,
        I look at it this way. If you can get the jist of what the person is trying to say, then let it go!!! I’m glad to know we have so many “perfect” people here that never make Mistakes!!

        • Wumingren

          You seem to have missed my point. I was not trying to correct anyone’s spelling or grammar. I was pointing out that the kettle was calling the pot black. And, it’s Wumingren, not Wumington.

  • Ken

    Allah be praised! If Barry is kissed by a handsome prince he’ll turn into a frog – this is the

    REAL reason they banned killing frogs ( but God only know’s who’s gonna kiss him! ).

    • Brad

      [offensive post removed]

      • Ken

        !!! Well there ya go!

      • Ken

        Just a reminder Brad – one of their methods is to get us all to fight among one another ( divide and conquor ) – black, white, red of yellow we are all men and women created in Gods image – and that’s where we truly derive our liberty. Not from “them”.

        If you allow yourself to be manipulated they will use your anger as a tool to separate us – we are all the same in reality – we have all the same hopes, all the same fears….find what we all share in common and unite with those around you….this is the only way to fight them.

        “They” hate anyone who can reason and think.

      • Ken

        @Brad;

        Just an invitation Brad – I would ask you not to allow any judgement’s to cloud your ability

        see the truth. “They” will use your judgement’s against you in what’s called “divide and

        conquer”.

        White, black, red, yellow, we are all the same inside, have all the same hope, all the same

        fears….if you allow your emotions to blind you to the truth that we are all the same and

        look to your fellow man as less than he is ( a reflection of you ). If you allow your hatred

        emotion to blind you to this truth, you are nothing but a tool for “them” to use.

        Take a cue from one of the great manipulators in history.

    • Joe H

      I don’t know, Ken, there are quite a few ignorant people out there FIGHTING to kiss him where the sun don’t shine! I’d just like to kiss him & his whole cabinet GOODBYE!!

  • Steve Ward

    Before the Exodus, God caused the 2nd plague, the plague of frogs, to overwhelm Egypt. This “plague’” was a direct response to the Egyptian God Heka or Heqt. It is remarkable that Islam of Egypt has reverted to the reverence of this animal once again.

    • JimH

      Steve, Can they still kill locusts?

  • T. Jefferson

    Tastes like chicken :/

    • JimH

      Yum, the taste of chicken with the convenience of frog and we get to anoy the Muslims too.

    “Saudi Arabian women breastfeed all unrelated men
    As many of us know, women and men in Saudi Arabia must be careful not to mingle, as the insanely strict Islamic law bans mixing between the sexes who are not related. Recently, the Saudis have issued a fatwa that forces women who come into contact with unrelated men on a regular basis to breastfeed them so that they can be considered “relatives” and not potential lovers. The strangest part is, this isn’t the actual issue at hand. The issue is, how do the men get the milk? I know, it just gets weirder. This Fatwa applies to men who regularly come into contact with the same woman, or men who live in the same house with a woman. The woman has to pump her breast milk into a glass and give it to the unrelated male”.

      I like this……..not the toadies.

  • http://wildeyguns.com The Christian Americam

    Isn’t this along the lines the Jews Kosher? Is you article for promoting disdain against Muslims? Personally I have nothing against Muslims. They even recognize Christ. I’m well aware the Zionist in America have succeeded in making their enemies America’s enemies, something President Washington warned us about. In my opinion the propaganda against Muslims has it’s center in America’s wanting control of the Muslims oil, black gold, and the Zionist wanting to make the countries in the Mid East vassal states to them.

    • Oneguess

      Just the facts, abdullah. Just the facts.

  • Don in Elyria OH

    Let me get this straight. You can’t kill a frog because an (expletive deleted) said that the croaking of a frog is “praise to Allah” but you can keep on stoning a poor woman who is begging Allah for forgiveness. Just like most of Islam, this makes no sense to me.

    • Joe H

      Don, It gets even WORSE. If a woman gets raped, she must be stoned as it is HER fault the man wanted her!!! Let one try to throw a stone at my wife if it happens….. They’ll be one less muzzie!!

    • jopa

      Don There may be a few things in the Christian Bible they may find odd.A virgin having a baby ,someone parting the seas, feeding the masses with a loaf of bread, drinking blood, walking around with a cross around your neck that some view as an instrument of death such as a gun or guillotine and the list goes on.It’s mainly a matter of interpretation to the reader to try and justify these claims.

      • http://yahoo l.b.fleenor

        It is a matter of faith and then God breaks thru to help u and u know it is real.

  • A Disappointed American

    I’m not sure why I feel so ashamed at all the hate in these comments. The world would be a much better place if you felt the same.

  • oldbill

    I don’t think even the Chinese could pond raise frogs and make them less healthy. But they sure are good deep fried in Wesson Oil!

  • Buck100

    The radical Islamist have really stumped me, not to kill frogs, but kill Mickey Mouse and all black dogs. I hope all the females in Egypt can get out quick; I feel blood baths inside and outside of Egypt.

  • Henry

    Gee what does it matter? Eat only what the Bible says is ok and everybody would be healthier.

  • http://yahoo mytwocentswrth

    I don’t get it. Once the frog ‘croaks,’ his praise to Allah is complete and you should then be able to eat his little legs. (By the way, Allah loves prok ribs and frog legs with hush puppies.)

  • Liberterian

    It seems like other religions also have such intrusive biases of their own. After all aren’t all religions equally and innately a paradox of what is not individuality and within sanities realm. Government and religion, and control and coercive are their very founding nature. What a sorry shame that we have both of these institutions, and people to carry on their morality by cruelty, their morality by coercion. Thanks to God, Allah and the Sun God, or the tyarant.

  • Jon

    In some ways, this is a promising sign, if we wanted the Egyptian government to act like ours. It would be typical that their first order of business would be completely trivial when there are many important matters being ignored. Sound familiar?

  • Sanity Perhaps

    Imagine living in Countries ruled by religion.. Now do you understand the meaning of “Separation of church and state?”.. What we see in these Countries should wise us up concerning this one. Be it Religion or politics, the two should consider it’s opposite in a lesser light.. Never as equal .
