Hyena meat trade profits al-Shabaab

Mmm… tastes like chicken

Never mind that the hyena is a scavenger that most Muslims regard as unclean.  Al-Shabaab reasons that as long as the revenues are used for jihad, that makes it permissible under Islam.

The terrorists’ gain is the hyenas’ loss.  But on the bright side, this suggests that al-Shabaab is struggling financially.  Read all about it.

Special benefits for Selangorese Muslims

January 26, 2011

Our government is designed to butt out of religion.  But in many countries around the world, government is designed to promote Islam.  In Malaysia, Muslims in Selangor who work unclean jobs from an Islamic standpoint will be compensated with special benefits and training from their state government.  Apparently, the widespread legal and tax discrimination against non-Muslim Malaysians through the bumiputra system just isn’t enough of an advantage for the Muslim population, so Selangor must do even more.  From the Malay Mail on Jan. 19:

SHAH ALAM: The Selangor government today announced that it was allocating RM10 million to help train and provide capital for Muslim workers in the state who are doing non-halal (not permissible in Islam) jobs.

A statement issued by the Selangor Menteri Besar’s press secretariat here today said the government symphatised with the plight of Muslims who worked in factories producing alcoholic drinks or outlets where liquor was sold.

Among the businesses the workers would be trained in are tailoring, beauty  salon operations, cooking and reparing of handphones, the statement added.

Those interested can contact any officer from the sectoral division of the state economic planning unit at 03-5544 7115/7965 or visit the division’s office at the 5th Floor of Bangunan Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, Shah Alam.

The announcement comes in the wake of guidelines under Selangor Syariah law enactments which prohibit Muslims in partaking in any non-halal job.
