When frogs croak, they’re praising Allah
FOLLOWING the revelation earlier this year that Allah, god of the Muslims, had stamped its trademark on a frog, news out of Egypt is that frogs are to be offered special protection because of their “holy” relationship with Islam.
The very first fatwa published after the presidential victory of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muhammad Morsi prohibits Muslims from hunting and killing frogs to sell to those nations that dine on the amphibians
According to Raymond Ibrahim’s blog, the ban has been imposed by Egypt’s highest fatwa council which explained that the “prophet” Mohammed” had recorded in a hadith that when frogs croak “they are praising Allah”.
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.’
Unlike the many other fatwas dealing with animals, including cartoon characters—such as the fatwa to kill Mickey Mouse – this frog fatwa is ostensibly humanitarian.
Yet, in reality, it only proves how enslaved Muslim societies are to the random words of their prophet – a prophet who, on one occasion ordered the killing of all black dogs because they are ‘devils’.
