Apr. 4 - Palestinian fishermen catch and kill a giant sea turtle, thought to be a Leatherback, an endangered species.

The rare giant sea turtle caught on a beach near Gaza City was slaughtered and eaten by Palestinian fishermen who said its blood was an aphrodisiac, among other therapeutic qualities. A Reuters cameraman said the fishermen collected the giant turtle's blood and gave it to children suffering from trauma and adults with back problems.

If someone from the West would have done this the environmentalist would be gnashig their teets. But some poor "impoverished" muzzie does it and it A-OK

When I lived in Yemen many of local fisherman killed every sea turtle they found. The turtles ate the fish they wanted to catch.

It has nothing to do the fact that these fishermen have friends who wear bombs to parties...

What do they need an aphrodesiac for? They’re not allowed to have much in the way of sex until they get their virgins.

Leatherback is the largest of the turtles. It is an amazing creature. Sad that they killed it.

One report says the blood is an aphrodisiac, that’s the real reason they slit it’s throat I believe.

That or they just like slitting throats of helpless animals, it could be a toss up I guess.

How many young Palestinian girls were raped after these morons ingested the turtle blood? Someone should start a rumor over there that says drinking rat poison will turn them into Big John Stud.

The leatherback’s main food source is jellyfish. As the leatherback population declines, jellyfish populations have exploded.

“Watch out!!! Here comes the giant wave of worldwide condemnation from all the environmental groups, the save the animals groups, vegetarian groups, UN Wildlife Protection agency, PETA, etc. ......”

I just had quite a bit of fun popping up on an environmentalist forum and posting on a thread about how child-bearing rights should be brokered and that global over-population had to be bested.

My suggestion? End welfare. :) And do away with those who are having 6 kids and getting paid for by the state, all the while not education their own children to be responsible adults. I also suggested that since the West wasn’t a problem here that they were being imperialists by attempting to force Africans and Asians to have fewer kids. Oh the mischief... !!! :)

And I owe that bit of fun to the likes of you to see if they were really talking about this turtle. (They weren’t!) [tips hat]

They get away with murder, kidnapping, rape, so why would anyone care if they kill a turtle?

That might lead to an awful lot of goats and donkeys passing out from exhaustion, too.

Turtle ain’t kosher

Halal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Explicitly forbidden substances

Blood[Qur’an 2:173]

In fact it is common belief among Southeast Asian Muslims that animals who live on both land and sea (such as amphibians, some reptiles, and some species of bird) are off limits.

Thanks much for the hat tip, but really, they are so darn predictable and so predictably hypocritical and full of double standards.

Good for you for checking ‘em out.
