Yes, of course, they’re not enraged at jihad terrorism, they’re enraged that the leaflet calls the Taliban dogs. Why? Because Islam hates 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 3811
“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
And the leaflet also had the shahada, the Islamic confession of faith, which is not actually a single Qur’an verse as AFP claims, but a combination of elements of two verses (37:35 and 48:29), written on the dog’s body. Taliban, let’s remember, means “students.” Students of what? Islam. Afghans have never protested against the Taliban’s avowed Islamic motivations and goals. But when Americans notice them, watch out. This is how the “Islamophobia” smear always works: Muslims saying “Kill them wherever you find them is fine.” Non-Muslims noticing Muslims saying “Kill them wherever you find them is fine” is “Islamophobic.”
“US angers Afghans with ‘offensive’ leaflet drop,” AFP, September 6, 2017:
US forces apologised Wednesday for dropping leaflets in northern Afghanistan depicting a dog with a Koranic verse written across its body – an image highly offensive to Muslims.
A photo of the alleged leaflet circulating on social media shows a lion chasing a white dog — the same colour as the Taliban’s flag – with the holy verse “there is no God but Allah, and Mohammad is the messenger of Allah” superimposed on its body.
Dogs are seen as unclean creatures by some Muslims and the association of Islam with a canine in deeply religious Afghanistan has angered many people.
“Take back your freedom from these dogs. Help the security forces eliminate these enemies. Take back your freedom and ensure your security,” the leaflet says.
NATO forces frequently drop leaflets over large swathes of Afghanistan in an effort to persuade locals against supporting insurgents.
Social media users condemned the disrespectful design on the leaflets, which were dropped in Parwan province.
“Death to infidels, death to their servants,” one user posted on Facebook.
Another wrote: “They do this in a country with a 99.9% Muslim population. We will see how the (insurgents)… react.”
Major General James Linder, who heads the US and NATO special operations forces in Afghanistan, apologised for the leaflet design which he said was an “error”.
“The design of the leaflets mistakenly contained an image highly offensive to both Muslims and the religion of Islam,” Linder said in a statement.
“I sincerely apologize. We have the deepest respect for Islam and our Muslim partners worldwide.”
An investigation into the incident is under way, said a spokesman for the special operations forces at Bagram Airbase in Parwan, America’s largest base in Afghanistan.
He refused to release a copy of the leaflet.
Hassiba Efat, a member of the Parwan provincial council, told AFP: “The leaflets are very offensive to Islam”.
“The people in the villages are angry about it but so far we have had no reports of any demonstrations.
“They (foreign forces) have apologised and promised to collect as many of the leaflets as possible.”…
