Jewish court sentences dog to death by stoning

A Jerusalem rabbinical court condemned to death by stoning a dog it suspects is the reincarnation of a secular lawyer who insulted the court's judges 20 years ago, Ynet website reported Friday.

According to Ynet, the large dog made its way into the Monetary Affairs Court in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighbourhood of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem, frightening judges and plaintiffs.

Despite attempts to drive the dog out of the court, the hound refused to leave the premises.

One of the sitting judges then recalled a curse the court had passed down upon a secular lawyer who had insulted the judges two decades previously.

Their preferred divine retribution was for the lawyer's spirit to move into the body of a dog, an animal considered impure by traditional Judaism.

Clearly still offended, one of the judges sentenced the animal to death by stoning by local children.

The canine target, however, managed to escape.

"Let the Animals Live", an animal-welfare organisation filed a complaint with the police against the head of the court, Rabbi Avraham Dov Levin, who denied that the judges had called for the dog's stoning, Ynet reported.

One of the court's managers, however, confirmed the report of the lapidation sentence to Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot.

"It was ordered... as an appropriate way to 'get back at' the spirit which entered the poor dog," the paper reported the manager as saying, according to Ynet.

Certain schools of thought within Judaism believe in the transmigration of souls, or reincarnation

How evil do you have to be to do such things to an innocent animal and say it's in the name of any religion?

Turns out that this "story" was a load of old rubbish. The BBC have had to print an apology and retraction.

It did seem odd for such a highly developed country as Israel, Pakistan maybe, but not Israel!

I'm very glad to hear it wasn't true, but even highly developed countries have people who follow their own customs, i.e. murdering daughters who they feel have brought shame to the family.

Nobody disputes that, Mara Thon. In Saudi Arabia, a woman was recently arrested and imprisoned for the crime of driving a car. It is the only country in the world where women are banned from driving cars.

There is an organisation called Saudi Women for Driving (سعوديات يطالبن بالقيادة) who are trying to persuade Subaru - who have a huge franchise there, and actively promote their cars as being family-oriented vehicles - to pull out of SA, in the hope of overturning this archaic ban.

It was only after enormous international pressure that Manal al-Sharif was finally released.

As for the BBC, they disgust me. They will print any old sh1t without even bothering to check.
