  1. Well at least it was done in the Halal fashion.
    Ironic that they should get to experience what they inflict on animals.
    Guess Allah must have a sense of humour after all.

  2. Remember the enemy killing their own usually results in the culling of the peaceful enemy and leaves only the vicious deadly enemy.
