A woman carrying stolen furniture on her shoulder passed by. She said, “Don’t look at me, it is not only me!”

Stopped by him and advised against looting, one of the looters replied in a hurry, “No, the Mullah said it is halal (religiously allowed).

This was not totally true as most Masjeds (Mosques) started to advise through their loudspeakers and during prayers that the looting is ( Haram) and  against the rules of the Islamic religion, that it is shameful and disgraceful, and that everything taken must be returned. Very few responded.

In the end the halal permit given by a few bad Mullahs had the upper  hand in this moral clash. The occupation soldiers were laughing and yelling “Ali Baba"…
