OTTAWA (Sun News) - Being sodomized is acceptable in Islam if the goal is to carry out jihad, according to some clerics, to support a new style of suicide bombing.
In a video posted on YouTube and reported on the New York based Gatestone Institute, a cleric can be seen offering instructions on how to carry out a successful suicide bombing mission by hiding explosives in the bomber's anus. The Gatestone Institute, which specializes in international policy and the Middle East offers up a translation that includes instructions for would be bombers.
"However, to undertake this jihadi approach you must agree to be sodomized for a while to widen your anus so it can hold the explosives," cleric Abu al-Dema al-Qasab tells followers in the video.
Raymond Ibrahim, a fluent speaker of Arabic and Mid-East scholar says the translation he provided to Gatestone is completely accurate and denies claims this is a hoax intended to insult Islam.
Sodomy is forbidden in Islam but according to clerics sought out by jihadists, everything is permissible if the objective is in the best interests of the jihad.
In 2009, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian national, attempted to blow up a plane bound for Detroit by igniting a bomb planted in his underwear. That led to the introduction of body scanners at airports worldwide which can see through clothing.
The scanners, however, cannot see inside body cavities, which may explain the new strategy.
