ISIS has been on the run in Iraq – very, very slowly, mind you, but still retreating. Trump’s giant bombs, and the Iraqi army, are slowly gaining ground.
It would be enough to rejoice at, except that the Caliphate soldiers are slaughtering civilians as they retreat. ISIS is an evil that needs to be eradicated.
But while most of us think ‘more soldiers, more guns, and more ammo’ might fix the problem, nature has worked out its own secondary solution.
It’s easily the most ironic thing I’ve ever seen. Pigs are killing ISIS soldiers. Islam hates pigs. As it turns out, pigs also hate Islam. Seriously.
I swear, I am not making this up.
USA Today reports:
Three Islamic State militants setting up an ambush in a bitterly contested area of northern Iraq were killed by a herd of stampeding boars, local leaders say.
Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and supervisor of anti-ISIS forces, told The Times of London the militants were hiding on the edge of a field when the boars overwhelmed them Sunday. Five other militants were injured, al-Assi said.
“It is likely their movement disturbed a herd of wild pigs, which inhabit the area as well as the nearby cornfields,” he said.
Now, let’s be clear – a wild boar isn’t anything like a domesticated pig at all. Pigs are cute. Wild boars are nasty and dangerous animals, with a bite strong enough to crush bone. If they’re eating a desert carcass – and they often do – they leave nothing.
So, as funny as it is that a few ISIS soldiers were mauled to death by a pack of wild boar, we shouldn’t take this to mean that ISIS soldiers are weak.
They’re still strong, and still evil, and still need to be eradicated. It’s just that boars are that much stronger.
But that doesn’t mean it’s not funny. Especially because contact with pigs is forbidden. As the Koran makes clear:
Prohibited for you is the carrion, blood, the flesh of the pig, and what has been dedicated to other than God.
It’s hard to abstain from the flesh of the pig when the pig is gouging you with tusk and teeth.
God planned the perfect revenge. Die from pig, and go to hell because of the pig.
