Muslim Groups Furious

Over Footage of Marines

Urinating on Corpses

1/12/2012 6:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

And the Muslims never condemn any act on USA soil or it's citizens? There is a double standard here..It was wrong for the Marines to do this but how many other acts have been done against Americans by Muslums and not a peep is heard about that..

Get your facts straight TMZ. Marines are not soldiers. They are MARINES. When will the media get this correct? Quit referring to Marines as soldiers and we might take the stories seriously. Credibility goes out the window whenever a Marine reads/hears a story and the media refers to us as soldiers.

WAIT!!! We dig up a video of a few soldiers who have been in the bowels of hell the last year or so, and probably 6 or 7 times in the last 10 years and suffer from every kind of stress disorder there is right?
We get a video of them pee'inng on dead bodies, probably some who had just tried to get them wita granade, or rpg, something, and the soldiers finally got them FIRST, thanks to god!!!. So they Pee.
These dead guys have shown us video after video of our people blown up, heads held up and back by their hair while their throats are slit WIDE OPEN from ear to ear(cause they are trained ear to ear)as they rapidly bleeed to death, with blood covering everything. There is seriously someone out there who cares that these soldiers pissed on these dead guys? Hmmmm I somehow dont think so.

Yes, they are outraged. But they would be MORE outraged if those soldiers drew a picture of Mohammad. It's war. Maybe if they didn't hijack airplanes with women and children to kill 1000's of innocent people we might care about this. TMZ is whipping this story --- for what reason? Stuff happens in war. Grow a pair.

Oh my, outraged muslims...AGAIN? whoda thunk it eh?
Now, if the video had been taliban dragging the dead burned corpses of Marines around a donkey cart you can bet ehy'd be as silent as mice while whispering "those weren't "rel" muslims". For my money, it's too bad they didn't gut and field dress the monkeys.

they were stupid to be caught on tape but they didnt do what the enemy does to our military when captured..they take ours and hang them , they drag their bodies through the streets,they set them on fire and burn their bodies, they behead captured soldiers,rape female captives,chop their bodies into pieces..so peeing on their dead is nothing compared to what they do to ours..WAR IS NOT SANITARY..

You TMZ a-holes are nothing but traitors to this country.

When the terorists come after you worthless "commentators", the first thing you will do is scream for help from the military.

Wait until you have watched your buddies blown up, shot in the head or worse and live under the conditions that are only ever experience in a war zone before you judge what you would or would not do. This is a shooting war people, not a movie or a video game. It happens in every war one every side, we just have cheap video recorders that do***ent it now. Don't like it--VOTE and get us out of the war but do not judge our fighters, you have no idea what they have been through and never will.

I guess they forgot about their people kidnapping civilians, chopping their heads off, burning the bodies, then dragging them down the streets beating the corpses.
