Cornered against a wall and with a steel hook pushed around his neck, the dog emits a savage howl in a desperate attempt to fight free, but poison will soon be forced into his mouth as Kabul’s cull of strays claims another kill.
Breitbart (h/t The Opinionator) About 17,600 dogs were poisoned last year by municipal workers in the Afghan capital in an effort to protect residents from disease and to control the rocketing population of canines that roam the city’s streets and open ground.
The method of killing is brutally effective. Teams of dog-catchers wearing orange suits use long steel hooks, wooden bars and large nets to ensnare their prey with practised skill. A heavy boot is put on the dog’s neck, and a spoon is used to press deadly strychnine into the mouth and gums. Then the dogs are tied to ropes, and die within an hour in spasms of agony.
Alternatively, poisoned meat is left out at night and by morning the ground is littered with corpses. The dogs, sometimes showing the final flickers of life, are thrown into the back of a truck and dumped on waste tips on the city outskirts.
One Kabul resident, Ghazal Sharifi, a dentist, told AFP how she had befriended a stray dog that had six puppies near her workplace — and one day she discovered them all being poisoned. “The workers laughed at me as I held the dying bodies,” Sharifi said. “This inhumane cruelty to animals is un-Islamic. “I saw dogs being thrown into a truck even when they were still just alive, piled one on top of another.”
“If you study the history of Islam, Muslims were murdering and beheading our ship captains when Thomas Jefferson was president. They’ve been doing the same thing ever since. This isn’t a surprise. You can’t solve it with a dialogue or a summit. You solve it with a bullet to the head. Its the only thing these people (Muslims) understand. And all we’ve heard from this president is a case to heap praise on this religion, as if to appease them.”
Note: US Marines are called “Leathernecks” because they had collars made of thick leather to protect them from Muslims who wanted to cut their heads off.
The Muslim cleric, living in Sweden, calls into the Arabic television channel Al-Hayat and introduces himself as Sheikh Ahmed, then explains what he thinks should be done with non-Muslims in Europe who refuse to convert to Islam.
DMF “Till our last day in life we will war against Sweden and all of Europe,” he says. “Yes, we should kill them. We’re not shy about that.” The host then points out that Ahmed himself has chosen to live among the “infidels” in Sweden and live on their social security benefits. “No, it’s not their money. It only comes from Allah,” said Ahmed in thanks to the Swedish taxpayers. He also paid tribute to the terrorist organization Isis and their ongoing ethnic cleansing of Christians in Iraq. “The intention of ISIS is to eradicate them,” said Ahmed.
