Muslim Groups Furious

Over Footage of Marines

Urinating on Corpses

Muslim organizations across the United States tell TMZ they are outraged by the disturbing footage which appears to show Marines urinating on the bodies of dead Taliban fighters.

"We are appalled by the video" ... a rep for the Muslim Public Affair Council tells us ... adding, "We ask Secretary of Defense Leon Penetta to reprimand these soldiers. These soldiers don’t stand for what our nation and our army and armed forces fight for on a daily basis."

The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) had a similar opinion -- saying, "We condemn this apparent desecration of the dead as a violation of our nation’s military regulations and of international laws of war prohibiting such disgusting and immoral actions."

CAIR adds, "If verified as authentic, the video shows behavior that is totally unbecoming of American military personnel and that could ultimately endanger other soldiers and civilians."

TMZ broke the story ... the U.S. Marine Corps is conducting an investigation into the footage to find out when the video was shot, where it was shot and if the men are indeed U.S. Marines.

Boo hoo muzzies.
Stop chopping heads, stoning your women, dad's murdering their daughters, brothers killing their sisters all in the name of religion. Local communities live in dread and fear from the Talibans.. Only TMZ would want to now call out the military over this.
or is Evan's undies in a knot again?

I think the first paragraph says it all. The Marines urinated on dead Taliban soldiers who just happen to be Muslims. I don't think the Marines gave a damn about what faith the Taliban are - they were urinating on a nasty enemy. They should have been more careful about the video though.

Why can they keep this kind of pics or video in the dark? It only make us look bad in the eyes of others. TMZ or other news didnt have to plaster it everywhere. I pee on the tiliban too if i have a chance and those muslims who live here on U.S but hate us.

It's funny how the muslim groups will all be up in arms over something like this, but you rarely ever hear them condemn terrorism.

It was incredibly stupid to video tape the soldiers urinating on those dead bodies and then upload it to youtube, but at the same time I don't really care one way or the other that it actually occurred.

Who gives a fu*k if a few dead brown people get pissed on.

What do you think the taliban would do if they got thier hands on an American soldier(dead or alive)?

@Sharlie Cheen:
I promise you one thing mate, we don't 4get **** like this either. To any who find pleasure or humor in these things, your minds and souls are warped beyond hope of repair. To all those animals, you'll get what's coming to you. 9/11? Don't make me laugh you disgusting piece of ****, 9/11 was nothing in comparison to all that's happened. Nothing about this is even ****.

Right, because it's only justified when they are the ones committing some foul, dehumanizing act.

It's disgusting what they did but TMZ you are stirring up a lot of hate on both sides by putting this out there. The military should have quietly taken care of this situation. But NOooooooo you had to start something. Hope your proud!

So these are the same people that cut heads off on the internet, blow our soldiers up with roadside bombs, and NEVER forget 9/11. Probably not the smartest thing to do on camera, but I guess it's fine with them to shoot them just not p*** on them. Maybe if we kill them all, there won't be anybody to complain...
