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.

Let's see......I'm outraged that a bunch of muslim Somolians dragged and beat dead US soldiers through the streets of Mogadishu back in '93. I think 9/11 is a given - absolutely outraged. 4 Contractors killed outside of Baghdad in 2005 - 2 immediately, 1 execution style and 1 burned alive with his remains strung up from a power line. Got a little outrage on that one too not to mention all of the Taliban sniper and IED videos out there. With all that said, piss away boys. Piss away. But, try to keep those videos private.

Stupid Americans .. Is that really something to be proud of .! urinating on dead bodies ,so you could't beat them or humiliate them while they were alive ,but when they're dead "oh let's urinate on them" that shows how cowerd and stupid you are .. And for those who talk badly about islam " don't talk about something you don't know it " you don't see us walking around talking about your religion ,but you're too stupid to notice that BTW you know nothing about Islam

What if these guys were not Muslim? What if it were Americans being peed on by Muslims/Taliban? Would Muslims be all in an uproar then? Nope. They weren't in an uproar when their people took down the towers and killed almost 3000 innocent people (some of which were also Muslim). They weren't mad when their people were beheading innocent Amerians or when their people were killing eachother in violent ways, either. They also aren't in an uproar everytime a father kills his daughter(s) in an honor killing, even though that is Muslim on Muslim (child) violence. They don't care about any of that, but when a dirty "infidel" dares do something in return, we're horrible people, condemned by the very people who can't even stand up for eachothers right to live. Hmm... something wrong there.

I didn't hear any Mus lim groups complain when Mus lims beheaded Nick Berg in Iraq in 2004, nor did they complain when we watched as Mohammed Aideed’s supporters dragged a dead American soldier through the streets of Mogadishu, or any of the other atrocities Mus lims have committed during my lifetime. So I find it hard to be compassionate towards any complaints they raise...

Dogs do it to mark their territory. Let the other dogs know who is around and who will stomp their butt if they don't take the warning seriously.
But on a serious note, why is our country the only ones that have to play by the rules. Newt played by the rules and Romney went for the juglar. Now the gloves are off and Newt is playing it their way and going after Romney. Same thing here. We play nice and the other countries go for the juglar but if we retaliate in the same way we are the villians. I'm tired of playing the patsy. They want to play dirty then we need to put all the pictures out there of what both sides are doing that is horrible or none at all.

CAIR would only be happy if it was Taliban urinating on American corpses. No Muslim is a loyal American. They can't be.

So many people are going to get angry at Marines and American over the childish acts of a few. Just like so many people here who hate Muslims over the acts of just a few. Until you can all grow up and realize that while you might have a different belief or view from these men, but in death they dont deserve this treatment, just like you wouldnt deserve it from them. We must learn to Coexist.
