Andrei Disposing of Osama

It's a good thing that Osama bin Laden wont have a grave but he did get a funeral. On the Aircraft Carrier USS Carl Vinson his body was washed and prepared, wrapped in a white sheet and decorously dispatched to the depths of the ocean.

And of course there is whining about this.
A prominent imam in Egypt, Dr Ahmed El-Tayeb, said the US violated Islamic custom by not burying bin Laden on land, a move seen as a US attempt to prevent his resting place from becoming a shrine for extremist followers.

Islamist lawyer Montasser al-Zayat said bin Laden should have been buried in his native Saudi Arabia, home to Islam's holiest sites.
To which most of us, I'm sure, say phooey!

He's lying, burial at sea is in fact one of the prescibed methods of burial for Muslims.

Naturally they jsut assume that westerners are just too stupid or lazy to bother fact checking them and that our useless media will repeat their lie without the slightest effort at balance.

Can't say as how they're wrong.

As an aside cutting people heads off is usually regarded as beign a violation of a westerns rights but no one seems too upset by that being a feature of Islamism these days.

Maybe our media should be worried about OUR root causes than someone elses for a change.

On the one hand, apologists for islam claim that Bin Liner's acts were not in accordance with islamic principles, then they demand that he be treated according to muslim customs....
