Moslem Cleric Claims US Deaths In Iraq at 40,000
Brought to you by our friends at Al-Jazeera
Some Saudi cleric named Sheik Yerbouti or something like that, has stated on Al-Jazeera TV that American deaths top the 40,000 mark.
His source for this earth shattering information? "...and I've checked it with several of Iraq's religious scholars, who confirmed it". Oh hell, that's good enough for me!
If that wasn't good enough, we have even more from Yerbouti;
"By Allah, a number of Iraqi religious scholars came to me, and said: "We have a problem." What was the problem? They said: There have been so many American casualties that they loaded them on trucks and threw them away in the desert. But because the number of casualties was so high... The Iraqi scholars were asking me for a fatwa. They asked me to issue a fatwa on the following question: "Because there were so many casualties, the Americans began to throw them into the Tigris and the Euphrates. The fish have eaten from the flesh of the American and have gotten fat. Are we permitted to eat these fish or not?" Yes. This is the truth, brothers."
Now here's the scary part... millions of people believe this idiot.
