New Danger For Dogs – Walking Near Mosques

Right now in Canada vicious threats are being circulated against anyone seen walking their dog next to a mosque:

“Posted by Ali Shirazi, who identified himself as an Iranian-born resident of Toronto, it was aimed at the dog owners who plan to attend the Sept. 14 event at the Salahuddin mosque and community centre.

Some devout Muslims believe dogs to be unclean and vehemently avoid them.

The Facebook page emerged in the wake of the Al-Quds Islamic rally held at the legislature just over a week ago. The yearly anti-Israel demonstration, started by Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979, was also attended by counter-protestors, one of whom was a Jewish man who brought his 160-pound English Mastiff.

Allan Einstoss was arrested by police after getting into a scuffle when he was told by Muslim demonstrators to keep his dog away. His dog, Cupcake, was also kicked by at least on demonstrator.

“I’ll tie you all up and throw you all in a lake of fire if you show up at the Salahuddin mosque … every dog will be shot on (the) spot,” wrote Shirazi.”

I don’t know where the assailants will obtain a ‘lake of fire’ and if such lake is available. But would I want to risk it and walk my dog next to a mosque? Not in this lifetime.

The threats by the way are being made against dog-walkers abiding the laws and walking on public land. Still, other then Facebook taking the hate-page down, don’t expect the Police to show any interest.

    I don’t respect any religion that doesn’t respect others. As far as clean goes, I guarantee my dog is cleaner than Ali Shirazi any day of the week! And they wonder why they have so many enemies! As Edie Brickell says, “Religion is the smile on a dog…”. Now, if ANYONE could just prove that THEIR religious belief out of the thousands on earth is the REAL deal, THEN maybe I might listen!
