Surprise, Surprise! Turns Out A Burial At Sea Offends Muzzies!

LOL!  This is too rich to pass up!  Yup, here Obama was trying to suck-up to the Muzzies by “respecting Muslim traditions” and yet, in his haste to dump Osama’s body, he couldn’t even get that right:

Sea burial of Osama bin Laden breaks sharia law, say Muslim scholars

US decision to dispose of body in the sea prevents grave site becoming a shrine but clerics warn it may lead to reprisals

Osama bin Laden’s burial at sea was quickly criticised by Muslim scholars who claimed it had breached sharia law and warned that it may provoke calls for revenge attacks against US targets.

And killing al-Qaeda’s iconic figurehead won’t provoke a greater reprisal from Muzzies?  Get real!

Others used the sea burial question to doubt whether he was, in fact, dead at all, with doubts fuelled by the absence of authentic photographs of his corpse.

Burying the al-Qaida leader on land could have led to his grave becoming a focus of contention and pilgrimage as well as posing tough questions about where he should be laid to rest.

“Finding a country willing to accept the remains of the world’s most wanted terrorist would have been difficult,” a US official said. “So the US decided to bury him at sea.” The burial reportedly took place from the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson in the North Arabian sea.

Senior US officials told news agencies that his body would be disposed of in accordance with Islamic tradition, which involves ritual washing, shrouding and burial within 24 hours.

The 24-hour rule has not always been applied in the past. For example, there was controversy when the bodies of Uday and Qusay Hussein – sons of the Iraqi dictator Saddam – were embalmed and held for 11 days after they were killed by US forces. Their bodies were later shown to media.

Standard Muslim practice involves placing the body in a grave with the head pointed toward the holy city of Mecca. Burial at sea is rare in Islam, though Muslim websites say it is permitted in certain circumstances. One is on a long voyage where the body may decompose and pose a health hazard to a ship’s passengers, an exception noted on Monday by the Tunisian scholar Ahmed al-Gharbi. Another is if there is a risk of enemies digging up a land grave and exhuming or mutilating the body.

Dr Saud al-Fanisan, former dean of the faculty of sharia law in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, said that if a body was buried at sea it should be protected from fish. In the words of alislam.org, the body should be lowered into the water “in a vessel of clay or with a weight tied to its feet”.

Mohammed al-Qubaisi, Dubai’s grand mufti, said of Bin Laden’s burial: “They can say they buried him at sea, but they cannot say they did it according to Islam. Sea burials are permissible for Muslims in extraordinary circumstances. This is not one of them.”

Abdul-Sattar al-Janabi, who preaches at Baghdad’s Abu Hanifa mosque, said: “What was done by the Americans is forbidden by Islam and might provoke some Muslims. It is not acceptable and it is almost a crime to throw the body of a Muslim man into the sea. The body of Bin Laden should have been handed over to his family to look for a country to bury him.”

The radical Lebanon-based cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed said: “The Americans want to humiliate Muslims through this burial, and I don’t think this is in the interest of the US administration.”

The Egyptian analyst and lawyer Montasser el-Zayat said Bin Laden’s sea burial was designed to prevent his grave from becoming a shrine. But an option was an unmarked grave. “They don’t want to see him become a symbol,” he said. “But he is already a symbol in people’s hearts.”

    So we do get a great idea once in awhile.

    Just tell them the handlers slipped on a banana peel, whoops, there he goes!

  2. tgusa Says:

    It is interesting that the Pakis recently demanded an end to US attacks on islamists.

  3. senor doeboy Says:

    Now the questions need to be raised about the true relationship between Osama and the Talibanand the Pakistan Government. I think there are alot more fish to fry.

  4. tgusa Says:

    I would imagine that our guvmint has a good relationship with Pakistan as a result of them helping us against the USSR during the 80s. Disturbing for sure.

  5. tgusa Says:

    Bin Laden sleeps with the fishes.

  6. tgusa Says:

    If osama did not represent islam why the traditional islamic burial? Also, if osama did not repersent islam why the administrations actions to humbly respect islamic traditions, even if they did get some of it wrong? And further, if osama did not represent true islam why the outrage over an unislamic burial? Confusing.

    • tgusa Says:

      Perhaps instead of our pols telling us what osama represents the media should ask muslims straight up. Funny huh?

    Here are my thoughts on the US Mil giving osama a sea burial.

    First and foremost I am glad that bastard is dead.

    Second of all moslems will not “RESPECT” America, Americans and the multiple religions and cultures already here.

    Thirdly in having the US Mil “respect” islams customs is like accepting them as masters of us all already. Our US Mil shouldnt bother ‘respecting’ a ideological and Theocratic system that desires our deaths.

      Dumping him like trash at sea worked well, it pissed of the minions, insults islams rules for dead pedophiles, keeps them from building a shrine to him.

      The only down side will be the sharks that eat him will start spinning around screaming allahu ackbar and will be in a suicidal rage. They will also chase little male sharks around with a lust filled eye.

      • islams not for me Says:

        Indeed! Too bad they didnt wrap him up in a pig carcass before “chuming the waters”….

    The classic manual of Islamic Sharia Law — The Reliance of the Traveler — states the following:

    “If someone dies on a ship and it is impossible to bury him on land, the body is placed (tightly lashed) between two planks (to obviate bloating)and thrown into the sea (so that it reaches shore, even if the inhabitans are non-Muslims, since a Muslim might find the body and bury it facing the direction o prayer (qibla)).” — Section g5:1, page 237

    Since the law is silent regarding what kind of planks should be used, the Navy could use steel or concrete planks. Thus, his body would wash up in a century or two.

  9. Chris Says:

    Nine of the ten terrorists who attacked Mumbai 2008 and killed 166 people were killed during the 60 hour stand-off. Pakistan refused to receive their bodies, because Pakistan insisted that the attack did not originate in Pakistan. Hah! The Indian Muslims refused to allow these Muslims to be buried in their cemeteries. So, the nine bodies stayed at the morgue for over a year. They were finally buried in unmarked graves without Islamic rites. The U.S. was way too kind in its disposal of Osama bin Laden.

    • islams not for me Says:

      planks of wood is too good for osama.I think putting him head first into a wood chipper is more appropriate.
