Gerbils are still acceptable.

ISIS have issued a fatwa against cats because they say the animals are against a jihadist’s ‘vision, ideology and beliefs’.The new law, introduced by senior ISIS clerics yesterday under Islamic law, forbids the indoor breeding of cats in the Iraqi city of Mosul.People living in the Islamic State’s ‘caliphate’ have been warned not to violate the ban, which appears to have already been enforced.
A scaredy-cat is rescued from a ledge twelve floors highISIS fighters have reportedly already started going door to door, hunting for little kittens.The new fatwa comes as a surprise, particularly after so many members of the terrorist group have been posting pictures online of themselves with kittens.But it appears to have all just been a propaganda stunt to attract a new breed of young fighters.A UN report carried out in 2014 revealed that 15,000 jihadists from 80 countries flocked to Iraq and Syria after seeing pictures of cats next to AK-47s and masked men.According to the report, ISIS recognised the ‘the terror and recruitment value of multi-channel, multi-language social and other media messaging’ so used the cat craze to make them appear more approachable.In one particular Twitter feed, ISIS fighters were shown feeding and playing with kittens as well as posing next to them, while holding guns.Last year, British ISIS recruiter Omar Hussein posted a picture of his cat, Lucy, curled up inside a suicide belt.
