Idaho patriots tool up to battle Jihad with pork bullets

US patriots concerned about "the ever growing threat of radical Islam and Sharia Law" can sleep sounder* in their beds thanks to an innovative range of pork-coated ammunition designed to dispatch jihadists directly to hell.

Jihawg Ammo's high-tech covering of ballistic paint, infused with "highest quality pork product made right here in America", will apparently "strike fear into the hearts of those bent upon hate, violence and murder".

The website elaborates:

Jihawg Ammo is certified "Haraam" or unclean. According to the belief system of the radical Islamist becoming "unclean" during Jihad will prevent their attaining entrance into heaven. Jihawg Ammo is a natural deterrent to radical and suicidal acts of violence.

The idea for Jihad-busting bullets was born back in 2010 around an Ohio campfire, where former NRA fundraiser Brendon Hill and chums were "enjoying an adult beverage" while expressing their disgust "that a mosque was being built at ground zero".

Earlier this year, Hill and his wife Julie were finally ready to counter this "great insult" by unleashing Jihawg Ammo "as a tongue-in-cheek way to stand up to radical Islamic terrorists".

Hill told ABC News:

"We're having some fun with it. There's something to be said about using sarcasm to reveal truth about something that is false or a lie, and we're focusing on the absolute lie they tell that murdering people is good."

The "Peace Through Pork" initiative has apparently proved popular in Republican states, with the company "steamrollered by orders". Hill said: "That's where our customers are coming from and in that demographic, our product is a way to push back against political correctness. It's the proverbial middle finger back to political correctness."

Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, is unimpressed. He told ABC:

"This is just one of many individuals and companies who seek to make a quick buck exploiting the growing Islamaphobia in our society."

He added: "Unfortunately there are a lot of idiots to buy into this stuff." ®

Readers with a penchant for history are doubtless put in mind of the 1857 Sepoy Mutiny, in which many native troops rebelled against British rule in India. The mutiny is generally held to have been provoked in part (to a greater or lesser degree depending on the historian) by the paper cartridges for the then newly issued Pattern 1853 Enfield Rifle. Standard drill called for troops to bite off the end of the cartridges to release the powder, and since they were widely believed among the sepoys to be coated in either tallow or lard, this proved offensive to Hindus and Muslims, respectively.
