Jihawg Ammo – Classic Islamophobic Fail

by Sheila Musaji

Recently, American Muslims were asked to accept “How to wink at a Muslim” as a joke.

Muslim slamm-3_4_r536_c534

Now we are asked to believe that Jihawg Ammo is only meant as a deterrent to “radical Muslims”, or as Sheik Yer’Mami called it, a culturally-sensitive solution to dealing with sudden jihad syndrome…”.

Tom Tillison BizPac Review reports that Pork-painted bullets sure to offend Muslims in which he says: “an Idaho company has begun producing bullets coated with “pork-infused paint.  Jihawg Ammunition’s company slogan is “Peace through Pork,” as stated on its web site, which says it “is the only ammunition in the world that provides a peaceful and natural deterrent to radical Islam.”  Tillison then goes on to make stupid and incorrect statements about the meaning of halal and haram and Sharia.

The AmmoLand site announcing this product says “Now Americans can defend themselves, their families, their communities, and their country from Muslim terrorists. Jihawg Ammo is the first product that provides a natural deterrent, promotes peace and yet provides maximum protection when used in a defensive posture. So, it is clear that they are marketing the product to ordinary American civilians.

Jeff Knox of WND posted New ammo cancels free ticket to paradise in which he says Jihawg Ammo’s full line of terrorist-deterrent ammunition, and their accompanying line of apparel and accessories, featuring slogans like “Pigs Do Fly” and “Do 72 Virgins a Favor,” are available at http://www.jihawg.com/ and should soon be available at select retailers around the country. [Note:  Media Matters for America reports on Jeff Knox that he heads a fringe gun group called the Firearms Coalition which recently proposed a successful resolution at the annual National Rifle Association conference urging the NRA to oppose any future restrictions on guns.]

Guns.com promotes this product in an article titled “Jihawg Ammo” Pork-Painted Bullets to Shoot Muslims.

Note, they don’t even bother with limiting their description of the intended target of these bullets to “radical” Muslims – JUST MUSLIMS.

I had hoped that this was all just the Islamophobia echo chamber posting nonsense that allowed them to get in some anti-Muslim propaganda.  However, it seems that this product actually exists – The Jihawg Ammo site that they promote has an order form.

This joins the Bible verses on rifle scopes which were used by American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Silver Bullet gun oil in the ideas for bigoted idiots category.

As Engy Abdelkader has previously pointed out:

While the Quran renders pork impure for consumption, some Islamic scholars have opined that if changed into another form, then it can be allowed. For example, a replacement heart valve or medication derived from swine would be permitted even if other non-porcine options were available.

Claims made that any hint of swine will prohibit you from entering heaven must seem ironic to a Muslim living with a porcine heart valve.

These idiots understanding of Sharia and Fiqh is so limited and wrong that they just don’t get the fact that there are no Islamic teachings that say what they claim.  The General Pershing myth that they mention as an example of the usefulness of this “tactic” is a myth.  As Jason D. Schwartzman reported in an article debunking this particular myth:

…  The myth of Pershing’s “pork blood burial” for Muslim terrorists has never yet inspired real-world imitation, but it seems to have come close on several occasions. The e-mails circulating the fabricated story and urging that the same be done today are certainly an example, though they were no more than bombast rather than action. Police Minister Gideon Esra of Israel appeared to have heard of the myth and accepted it at face value. In 2001, he called for suicide bombers to be buried wrapped in pigskin in order to discourage future attacks. This is probably the closest that defiling dead Muslim terrorists with pig remains has come to actually being a reality.

The myth of General Pershing suppressing Muslim fanatics by defiling their bodies with pig’s blood is a complete falsehood. The legend was born out of confusion, probably accidental, between a completely fictional depiction of the Moro Rebellion in a 1939 movie and the real deeds of Pershing in 1913. Pershing actually stopped the rebellion by using a minimum of violence, deescalating situations whenever possible, and disarming the Moros entirely. The myth is no more than a bloodthirsty urban legend, and furthermore, the method described would not work, since being killed by a bullet soaked in pig’s blood has no more or less deterrence value to a devout Muslim combatant than being killed with a plain bullet has.

    Lol what do they think we are, vampires? except a special kind that can’t touch pork?

    Not that gun nuts need a lot of encouragement to purchase ammo, but this might corner the Islamaphobic niche. Ignorance abounds, and the wrong people are having babies.
    It’s pretty obvious the gene pool needs chlorine.

    Shouldn’t it be Jihog?Or do the folks across the pond spell Hog as Hawg?

    Come to think of it, that was exactly what I was thinking of. I just couldn’t remember the name of the incident

    Indeed. In the instance of the 1857 uprising, Indian Muslims and Hindus jointly fought against the British Raj. The spark that ignited the conflagration was the use of pig and cattle fat in British East India Company sepoys’ ammo, but the fuel was piled on by decades of indignities, insensitiveness, inequality and bigotry.

    Indian nationalism was non-sectarian for much of its early history. For whatever reason, the Ottoman Caliph had taken on the mantle of anti-European colonialism, resulting in even Indian nationalists of the non-Muslim variety courting Ottoman support. Much like the Irish tricolour, the Indian nationalist flag used the colours orange, white and green to symbolise the two main religious groupings and the peace between them. However, much like in Ireland, the UK used divide-and-rule tactics to prevent a united nationalist front from emerging.

    In most contemporary American sources, the Indian nationalists were given a fairly positive portrayal as fellow fighters against British imperial dominance, which makes these American ultranationalist gun nuts’ apparent endorsement of the East India Company’s insensitiveness (in the case of the BEIC, it was mostly inadvertent; the gun nuts’ offensiveness is intentional) truly ironic.

    Ah, well. There’s little truly consistent about their views beyond a general hatred of the “other,” be they fellow Americans or foreigners.

    I don’t think Hindus are specifically forbidden to eat pork. Its beef that they’re specifically forbidden to eat.
