Muhammad, the supreme example of human conduct (cf. Qur’an 33:21), ordered the killing of dogs:
“Once Gabriel promised the Prophet (that he would visit him, but Gabriel did not come) and later on he said, ‘We, angels, do not enter a house which contains a picture or a dog.'” — Sahih Bukhari 4.54.50
“Abdullah (b. Umar) (Allah be pleased with them) reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) ordered the killing of dogs and we would send (men) in Medina and its corners and we did not spare any dog that we did not kill, so much so that we killed the dog that accompanied the wet she-camel belonging to the people of the desert.” — Sahih Muslim 10.3811
He also clearly considered them unclean, as indicated by the washing instructions here: “Ibn Mughaffal reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) ordered killing of the dogs, and then said: What about them, i. e. about other dogs? and then granted concession (to keep) the dog for hunting and the dog for (the security) of the herd, and said: When the dog licks the utensil, wash it seven times, and rub it with earth the eighth time.” — Sahih Muslim 551
In accord with such teachings, observant Muslims generally consider dogs unclean, dislike them and don’t want to be around them. So this actress warned in her ad that she had a dog, so Muslims wouldn’t want the job. And now here again, noticing the truth about Islam, when that truth is unpleasant or jarring to Western sensibilities, is “racism.”
“Actress ‘banned Muslim handymen’ over chihuahua worries,” from The Local, December 1 (thanks to David):
One of France’s most well-known singers and actresses, Marie LaforÃªt, will today appear in a Paris courtroom to defend herself against charges that a job advertisement she placed discriminated against Muslims.
72-year-old LaforÃªt, who first found fame as an actress in the 1960s, placed an ad on an internet site looking for someone to carry out some work on her terrace in 2009, reported daily newspaper Le Parisien on Thursday.
She specified in the ad that “people with allergies or orthodox Muslims” should not apply “due to a small chihuahua.”
LaforÃªt claimed that she made the stipulation because she believed the Muslim faith saw dogs as unclean.
The case was taken up by anti-discrimination organization Mrap, which lodged a complaint against the internet site which ran the ad.
“To think that Marie LaforÃªt is racist is just stupid,” said her lawyer, David Koubbi, according to the newspaper. He said the words in the advertisement were only a “warning.”
Koubbi added that the star “has always shown her interest and admiration for the Muslim faith.”
“She knew that the presence of a religion could conflict with the religious convictions of orthodox Muslims. It was a sign of respect.”
Experts in the Muslim faith were quoted as rejecting the defence.
“Dogs are not considered unclean and it’s false to suggest otherwise,” said one quoted by the newspaper.
This unnamed expert in the Muslim faith has thereby revealed that Iraq’s Ayatollah Sistani is not the expert on Islam that he appears to be, but is actually a greasy Islamophobe. For Sistani includes dogs in his list of unclean things:
The following ten things are essentially najis [unclean]:
4. Dead body
8. Kafir [unbeliever — i.e., non-Muslims]
9. Alcoholic liquors
10. The sweat of an animal who persistently eats najasat [unclean things].
