Everyone needs to fight the War on Terror (referred to as a "foreign contingency operation" by the Obama Administration) in their own way. It's a war on terror if a jihadi is in the process of beheading you. It's a foreign contingency operation if you're watching an Islamic activist behead somebody else on Al Jazira. It's a matter of perspective in this regard.
The good people at Jihawg are taking a shot at eliminating the need for 72 virgins per jihadi by selling ammunition. I realize that a ticket to paradise is usually an invitation for a jihadi to get his 72 veiled beauties, but not this time. Not THIS time.
(ammoland.com) A company in northern Idaho has come up with a culturally sensitive solution. Jihawg Ammo has developed a proprietary system for infusing ballistic paint with pork. The special pork-infused paint is then applied to the bullets of loaded ammunition. The inclusion of pork in the paint makes the bullets haraam, or unclean. Under Islamic law, anyone who comes in contact with any haraam item is then unclean, and must engage in a cleansing ritual. No unclean person can be admitted into Paradise. Do not pass Go. Do not collect 72 virgins.
Jihawg believes that there is a way to discourage religious extremists who believe that dying for their faith is an Express Ticket to Paradise.
Nobody outside of Islam would seem to be completely convinced that Allah is going to reward faithful Muslims with 72 virgins, a river of honey, etc. There is no argument that mullahs worldwide promise this reward to young men who decide to participate in jihad. Killing them outright simply speeds that reward that they yearn for. Taking people like Major Nidal Hasan, US Army or the hundreds of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba into custody only turns them into martyrs, living at tax payer expense.
In madrassas (such as the one where President Obama went to school in Indonesia) those young men are lionized. But if they're killed with a bullet that has a tip dipped in a paint infused with pig fat, the result isn't 72 virgins in a land of milk and honey. It's consignment to HELL.
Jihawg ammunition provides a deterrent to would-be jihadis, and they sell it in 9 mm, .45 ACP, .556 NATO and .308 Winchester. Imagine the horror of going to all the trouble to murder innocent women and children, only to be taken down with a bullet rolled in bacon grease! It defeats the purpose of going on jihad if your eternal soul is dragged down to hell.
PEACE THROUGH PORK
Jihawg Ammo’s company slogan is “Peace through Pork.” They sell their specially treated ammunition for defensive purposes only. While some will choose to be offended by the entire concept of Jihawg Ammo’s haraam ammunition, the makers of Jihawg counter that threatening a murderer with eternal damnation is not a new concept.
Jihawg is giving away ammo on their FaceBook page: https://www.facebook.com/BuyJihawg but I ordered a box of ammunition (even though I don't personally own a firearm) just to see what it looks like. If misguided Islamic extremists show up, I can always throw bullets at them.
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/.
Even though this culturally insensitive ammunition is available for sale and that's fun, I can only imagine the FUN that these guys in rural Idaho had coming up with the idea to dip bullets into paint infused with pig fat.
Politically Incorrect/Culturally Insensitive Story
If you are a Muslim, read no further!
There was a day, long ago, when US military people, operating in a remote part of an Islamic country actually flew a couple pigs in on C-123 Providers, penned them up and used those very pigs as a means of interrogation.
Jihadi #1 refused to cooperate with the interrogator's query. The US military people shot a pig in the head and drug it (heavy bastard) into a pit and then they gutted it with a tomahawk. Then they threw Jihadi #1 into the pit (wearing restraints). He ended up on fresh, steaming pig guts from the carcass and seemed none too happy with the experience. A couple of shovels full of dirt spread over both him (alive) and the pig (dead) made the point and both he and the other Jihadis cooperated fully. Waterboarding (while not unheard of) was not necessary, and neither was an elaborate (and expensive) network of secret interrogation centers. A few pigs, some barbed wire to keep them in and some pits worked.
Today that's politically incorrect, so pork-infused paint on the tips of bullet to throw some ham down range into Mohammed when he's out trying to murder the innocent may just be the next best thing.
