    I wonder if they will start smearing NY City landmarks with this stuff?



    Pig lard to stop terror attacks
    From correspondents in Jerusalem
    February 12, 2004

    ISRAELI police have come up with plans to place bags of pig lard on buses in a bid to deter Palestinian militants from carrying out suicide attacks, the Maariv daily reported.

    Rabbinical authorities have given the idea its approval on the grounds that it could be a life-saving measure even though pigs are also considered impure by Jews.

    Authorities believe that the move could discourage Palestinians from carrying out attacks as pieces of their exploded body could come into contact with the pig fat, prejudicing their chances of entering into paradise.

    The paper said that the rabbinical dispensation could mean that security forces also hang bags of lard in shopping malls and schools.

    Public buses have been a favourite target for Palestinian suicide bombers since the start of the intifada in September 2000.

    Maybe we should try it on our airplanes ....? :D

    But Minetta would probably be against letting airline pilots carry pork lard.

    Given that thousands of celebrated mujahadeen have died covered in blood, dirt and sweat on battlefields around the globe I don't see how this can even be considered.

    Islamicists are purported to be in immortal fear of all things swine oriented.

    Since they do not seem to fear death, we need to put them in fear of losing their afterlife privledges.

    Thus, the idea of "pigging" them and rendering them incapable of collecting their reward in the hereafter.

    Pork fat would be messy...

    Maybe they could use pork rinds instead?

    Seriously though, would the lard be a detriment to any Jewish people, in regard to the afterlife, if it touched them?

    Hm, yep yep yep! I do recall that swine are considered to be unclean and any muslim that is defiled by it will be prevented from entering paradise.

    IIRC, there was a certain American General in the Phillipines that used a side of bacon (hung around the neck of a terrorist), during an execution of convicted muslim terrorists that prevented more attacks for 40+ years... :cool:

    Heck, anybody know who I'm refering to?

    I'd wager that bags of lard would be ignored as the leaders of the militant Palestinians - who curiously never don an Allah Boot or Jihad Vest - explain to their unthinking followers that the last act of becoming a martyr will overcome the pig fat and send them right to Paradise.

    But I've been wrong before.

    Once.

    "Black Jack" Pershing in the Philippines.
    In the cases I've become aware of,
    execution bullets dipped in pig blood, fat and offal were used,
    rather than any sort of bacon-laced hanging.

    The convicted terrorists were made to dig their own graves, of course;
    lots of onlookers (and even one terrorist spared) to spread the word regarding the defilement...
    An Austro-Hungarian observer's report confirms that the excess pig's offal and blood was thrown into the graves before filling in with dirt.

    Exceedingly effective deterrent, as it reduced the overall volume of terrorism.
    However, sporadic suicide attacks by Muslims on US troops (and on both US and Filipino civilians) continued well into the 1930's, so it didn't faze everyone. I suspect cordex's 'special clerical dispensation scenario' may have been at work in some cases.

    Well, if the pig lard is not going to work, may I suggest a pig under each arm as a bus boarding pass?

    Cordex has it exactly right.

    We are talking about death-cult psychotics that can sit on a bus next to a two year old girl, and ten seconds later splash her guts across the schoolyard across the street.

    The only way to fight these vermin is to find them, and KILL them. The second one of them opens their yap and says "DEATH TO THE INFIDEL" or some other BS, KILL THEM! Find someone taping the "Martyrs last words" KILL THEM TOO!

    Arafat? DEAD! Hamas? DEAD! Hezb'Allah (or however the %&#@ it's spelled)? DEAD! Cry &*$#@*@ havoc! And let slip the dogs of war!

    Enough of this 7th century BS!:fire: :cuss: :fire:

    Rabbis back Israeli 'guard pigs'

    An organisation in Israel has gained rabbinical approval to train pigs to guard Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
    Until now, Jewish settlements have been guarded by men with guns and also by guard dogs.

    But a new idea - guard pigs - has been thought up by an organisation called The Hebrew Battalion....

    Oh, I thought you meant average Americans were using their excess lard to smother Al-Qaeda operatives.

    Can we expect 5.56 mm Pig Lard rounds to be added to the inventory now?

    <voice="wise old jedi">No. There is another.</voice>

    There is another way to "fight these vermin," but it is much more difficult than simply killing them. We need to change their minds.

    There was a story a couple of years ago about a rabbi in Israel who'd "invented" a bullet which contained a small piece of pork. The idea is that if a terrorist was shot with one of these, it would kill his soul as well as his body.

    Many years ago - well before the current crop of Middle Eastern unpleasantness - I spoke to a guy who worked at the Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant just outside of Minneapolis. He told me that they'd once had to shut down the lines and check everything out because of a rumor that some lubricant in the production chain was based on lard. The powers-that-be did NOT want our enemies to think we were trying to kill their souls, as it might offend them. I guess this was a very early sign of what would later come to be known as "political correctness." (No, I don't know what the results of the investigation were, nor do I know if lard-based lubricants were actually used.)

    Unfortunately, evil and ignorance only understands power.

    Diplomacy always needs to be backed up with threat of violence and the
    will to use it.

    The middle east is getting much more concillatory (Libya ,Syria) now that we have plowed through Iraq.

    The current policy of hunting down and killing these scumbags is probably the main reason there has not been another terrorist attack in the US.
