Animal Rights in Islam?

Reader comment on item: CAIR's Assault on Paul Harvey

Submitted by Mike Ramirez (United States), Dec 25, 2003 at 19:33

CAIR's attempt to silence Paul Harvey is another ploy to disguise the Truth about the Islamic theology and what it teaches in regard to bloodshed.

Reportedly, CAIR filed a defamation lawsuit against Harvey for the comments he made in reference to cockfights in Iraq. Yet, CAIR stated that Islam "specifically prohibits cruelty to animals." Herein is another coverup by the public relations of CAIR for if they had been truthful they would admit that their prophet, Muhammad, encouraged the killing of dogs. Islamic theology also states that anyone who owns a dog, with the exception of a sheepdog or hunting dog, would have rewards deducted from their good deeds. Reference: Hadith of the prophet, Muhammad: Malik's Muwatta, Book 54, Number 54.5. 12-13; Sahih Muslim Book 024, Number 5246, 5248; and Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 528, 541.

Paul Harvey was within his rights to state his commentary, exercising the Right of Free Speech that we hold dear in America and stating the truth about a religious ideology that encourages terror. However, God help us if the trend of CAIR's threats continue to influence our own government in their attempt to silence those who speak the truth.
