Jordan: Fatwa Issued To Kill Every Stray Dog – Killing Currently Under Way.

 

Dear Mark,

As I write this, gunmen are trying to kill every

street dog in the entire country of Jordan.

Dogs are being hunted down and shot because

the country’s religious leader has declared a

holy war on dogs.

Because of this, men armed with automatic

weapons are systematically killing every street

dog they see!

Mark, I am saddened beyond words that such

a terrible thing is happening and with your help,

I intend to do something about it. As a first step

my team is making contact with the Jordanian

government asking it to end this horrible cruelty.

Jordan’s most senior religious figure, Grand Mufti,

Dr. Mohammad Al-Khalaileh, issued a fatwa

– a religious instruction to Muslims – to kill

the dogs. He quoted Prophet Mohammed to justify

the slaughter.

Because a fatwa is binding on Muslims, municipalities

across the country started hiring snipers.

Thousands of dogs have been killed and the

massacre continues every day.

Mark, as animal lovers we have no option but

to fight this nightmare by every means possible.

“It is our duty as animal lovers to do whatever

we can to stop this dog genocide. Before there

are no dogs left in Jordan.”

Mark, we are so terribly saddened by this and

we urge you and all our supporters to share the

fact that Prophet Mohammad repeatedly forbade

cruelty to animals, saying: “Whoever is kind to

the creatures of God is kind to himself.”

My job is to get this message through and to care

for those dogs we can on the ground. We are

already searching for land where we can create

a safe haven for some of the dogs.

The most important immediate first steps are

to spread the word about the unspeakable cruelty

and horror that is unfolding.

And, please make a donation, we can’t do this without your financial support. That is the simple truth.

For the animals

  1. Street dogs have a right to live as human beings. Just because we are stronger, we don’t have the right to take lives. If it’s wrong to murder innocent men, it’s wrong to murder innocent animal.

    Petition signed and shared.

    • Thanks Care2. What gives these so called ‘humans’ the right to think that they are better than animals and also have the right to condemn them to death – what have they done ? Pity we cannot issue a Fatwa against all animal abusers -like tidy up the planet a bit and make it a better place !
