ISIS bans pigeon breeding – punishable by public flogging – because seeing birds’ genitals overhead offends Islam

ISIS Bans PigeonsSenior clerics fighting for the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq have issued a diktat banning pigeon breeding as they claim the sight of the birds’ genitals as they fly overhead is offensive to Islam.

Jihadis operating in the group’s ‘Euphrates province’, which stretches from Anbar in Iraq to Dier ez Zour in Syria, told pigeon breeders they had one week to stop the practice or face public flogging.

    You know I’m starting to rethink this whole Islam thing.

    Nutty freaks.

    I guess here is how they will deal with the problem.

  • Dana Garcia

    Aren’t bird genitals rather well camouflaged by abundant feathers?

    On the Wacko Islam Perversity scale, this is an 11.

      If you look up at a pigeon, you won’t see much before you get poo in the eye.

      They are not visible externally even without being covered with feathers, which is why it is not easy to sex birds unless there is a colour or size difference between the sexes.

  • Rosenmops

    Are they going to kill all the native birds too? Better put pants on goats while they are at it.

      IS/Daesh Morale will suffer

  • DVult

    What about all the other animals?

  • Hard Little Machine

    Instead of killing them all we should capture them and tattoo a vagina on each one’s face.

  • Gary

    But how will they get their mail once they kill off all the really smart and hard working infidels.

    Then someone will discover that those fierce ISIS warriors have been prancing about in public despite being naked under their uniforms.

    Um, excuse me, ISIS … you know those “bits” that are dangling under a flying pigeon? They are FEET, not genitals!!!
