Sodomite

Jihadis must be sodomized – A Fatwa says so

The truth is really stranger than fiction.  I first heard about this one in a National Review opinion piece then I had to actually watch it.  Apparently, a Muslim cleric has made the claim that repeated sodomy is a requirement for Jihadis who want to commit a suicide bombing with explosives in their colon.  Apparently, that is the only way to ensure the colon is stretched wide enough to comfortably accept the explosives.  This is too funny for words.  If that is not the craziest explanation for sodomy I don’t know what is.

Video below; I love the way the announcer pauses at 51 seconds when he gets to the part where the OP asks if it is not only OK but virtuous to engage in serial buggery if you do it in the cause of Jihad.  The wording of the question is classic, “My question is whether I am permitted to allow one of the Mujahideen access to my anus if my intentions are honorable?”:

I spent almost four months training Iraqi troops in Tikrit in 2004 and the other American instructors and I caught trainees buggering each other behind their tents on an almost nightly basis.  This is not an uncommon practice among Arab men as far as I know.  I cannot tell you how many Iraqis I met who told us that “Women are for making babies but men are for pleasure.”  In those words no less.  Now they have religious approval to do what they were going to do anyway.

    wow that was 2.08 minutes I wish I could scrub from my memory. “buggery” I have also heard is pretty common in the in the middle east. They talk the talk, but their walk is a walk on the wild side. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OexjtzsjCs

      I simply found the video totally hilarious. It is even funnier because they are taking the subject so seriously. I can just picture dudes lining up to take one for the team and volunteer to be a “colon stretcher.”

      I learned from living in Mexico that terms like “gay” and “straight” are cultural constructs. Most men consider themselves hetero as long as they don’t TAKE it where the sun don’t shine, but basically all of them swing that way according to western standards.

      The “down low” phenomena is pretty mainstream in many cultures apparently.

      Learning about this stuff makes me throw up a bit in my mouth, but its always good to know when to wash after shaking someone’s hand.
