Just how cartoonishly evil do you have to be to have it in for kittens?
The Islamic State has issued a new decree banning cat breeders from operating inside houses in its territory. The group says the new fatwa is in line with its “vision, ideology and beliefs.”
The group’s soldiers are now conducting house to house searches in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul looking for kittens. It is not known what they will do with the kittens if and when they find them.
Considering what they do to Christian children, you can imagine the treatment cats will receive.
Previously ISIS portrayed itself as pro-cat, in a public relations effort to attract young recruits by seeming cuddly:
In 2015 Dutch jihadist Israfil Yilmaz, 28, became an overnight heart-throb after he posted pictures of himself holding a ginger kitten.
The terrorist, who was reportedly killed in an airstrike in Raqqa last month, received 10,000 marriage proposals after posting the images with the caption “Soft towards the creation of Allah but fierce and harsh towards the disbelievers.”
You never know what whimsical twists and turns totalitarianism will take.
