Is the Muslim Brotherhood using puppy bombs?

Most Americans don’t need more reasons to hate a group that burns down churches, but here’s another one that may or may not be true.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, which recently was ousted from power by the Egyptian military, is accused of soaking puppies with gas, lighting them and throwing them at the army, according to reports on Breitbart.com and other websites.

According to animal rescuers in New Jersey, only three of 20 puppies used as firebombs were able to be rescued. Those animals can be seen at petfinder.com.

But is the story true?

A reporter from The Guardian says he finds the story difficult to believe.

“Gathering 20 puppies, transporting them to a protest, dousing them in petrol, and then throwing them at soldiers while being teargassed strikes me as not just impractical, but nigh-on impossible,” said Patrick Kingsley in a Huffington Post UK article.

It is not clear when the alleged attack occurred, but I find it suspicious the dogs were transported to the U.S., which requires all sorts of paperwork on imported pets. And a Molotov cocktail is easier to throw and more effective than a weaponized puppy.

Foreign Policy says there’s no proof this has happened and called the idea ‘wildly impractical.’

Journalist Patrick Galey contacted the New Jersey animal group, which said it accepted the puppies from Egyptian animal rescuers without questioning the wild claims.

General Motors used to use live pigs and other animals in crash tests before being publically humiliated by PETA during the annual Rose Parade in Pasadena. Proctor and Gamble continue to kill nearly 50,000 animals annually in “safety” tests that nearly all of their competitors have replaced with computer modeling, tissue culture testing, and other cruelty-free alternatives.

Stories abounded about Iraqis throwing babies to the floor from incubators in Kuwaiti hospitals. This was all a ploy to get the gullible American people to back our first invasion of Iraq. Of course the stories were absolutely false, but even congress believed them.

GM and P&Gs atrocities are well-documented. Focus your anger at home instead.

It is a rule that any article where the title is a question, has an answer that is no.

So, the answer to the title of this article, is no.

Ancient Egyptians revered cats, because they were enslaved by alien cat-people and forced to build the pyramids, so they’ve probably been breed to see dogs as inferior beings and thus suitable for weaponization. So… it’s absolutley true.

I don’t doubt your story about earlier live tests for gathering but much has changed since a couple of monkeys rode early Redstone missiles before Project Mercury put Alan Shepard and six others in space.
P&G changed it’s test protocols in the same time frame.

Instrumentation for data collection has improved many fold since the 1980’s microelectronics boom.

MEANWHILE, the Moslem, yes, that’s right — MOSLEM world has made no progress in moving from the 6th century to the present.

Find a CAR, COSMETIC, BEVERAGE produced by the “peace loving” adherents to ISLAM.

Since Long Term Fox News Watching ROTS the Brain … then maybe YOU should STOP watching.

Liberals really should STOP watching Fox, and STOP listening to Limbaugh and Hannity. The constant references to them prove that YOU tune in and why their ratings are so darn high.

To answer the original question … Bernie31 most likely participates in this ritual with HIS brothers. That small dog he uses as a profile picture could be a symbolic reference.
