Why there are no suicide bombers on Israeli buses

In Seville, Spain, the City Council authorized the construction of a Mosque
                                on one of the empty pieces of land. The citizens did not want the mosque
                                built in their vicinity and found a brilliant solution. They buried a pig in
                                the land, and made the news public. The Islamic law prohibits the
                                construction of a mosque on lands desecrated by remains of pigs,
                                therefore the Muslims had to renounce the construction on this desecrated

                                Astute Sevillans…The commentaries of the Civil Guard (Police) are very
                                interesting. Maybe it is the solution needed by New York to avoid the
                                construction of a mosque in the vicinity of the twin towers.

                                The Israelis are using a similar strategy since 2004. They placed a box
                                containing pig lard on the buses in Israel and made it public that any
                                kamikaze suicide bomber who tries to assault a bus, risks the prohibition of
                                entering the heaven by getting the pig lard on him.  There are no suicide
                                bombers on the buses in Israel any more.


Now, did it work?

First this:
– interesting about the use of pigskins with Chechen terrorists –

According to the Moskovski Komsomol newspaper, Russian security forces have decided to bury the terrorists from last’s week’s hostage siege wrapped in pig’s skin. The aim is to deter potential Islamic terrorists from future attacks.

Shahidi (Jihad martyrs) believe by their nefarious acts that they ascend immediately to heaven. Using their beliefs against them, wrapping their corpses in ‘unclean’ pigskin prevents them from entering heaven for eternity.


2004 – Israeli police ‘plan’ to put bags of pig lard on Israeli buses – http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1076654/posts


You can trust Snopes (updated 2008) to research stuff like this – http://www.snopes.com/rumors/pershing.asp

The idea goes back to the early 20th century


Ah… a source for the original story – http://forum.pressdemocrat.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3156

Interesting idea in the comments – carpet-bomb Afghanistan with pig carcasses…


Another article that’s equivocal –


Then someone posted this: Israel police may use pig fat to stop attacks on buses
February 13, 2004

Israeli police have come up with plans to put bags of pig lard on buses in a bid to deter Palestinian militants from carrying out suicide attacks.

Rabbinical authorities have given their approval to the idea on the grounds that it could be a life-saving measure, even though pigs are considered impure by Jews as well as Muslims.

Authorities believe the plan could discourage Palestinians from carrying out attacks as pieces of their exploded body could come into contact with the pig fat, prejudicing their chances of entering paradise.

The Ma’ariv daily says the rabbinical dispensation could mean that security forces also hang bags of lard in shopping malls and schools.

Public buses have been a favourite target for Palestinian suicide bombers since the start of the intifada in September 2000.

  1. […] The Israelis finally got it. All they did was place or hang pork products in their shops and vehicles. That’s it. These are seventh-century savages, who are afraid of not going to meet Allah should they come in contact with a pig, and as such, will not blow themselves up if pork is present. […]
