Hey, I'm just like the New York Times!

The dog blood libel story I included in my Around the World post happily turned out to be a hoax.

Big H/T to Five Feet of Fury.

I took the story with a grain of salt anyway. Jews don't think dogs are unclean (that's Muslims), and traditional Judaism doesn't believe in reincarnation.

I thought it strange that a Jew would sentence a dog to stoning. Aren't Muslims the only ones who still carry out stoning? Additionally, I kept thinking about talk show host, author, biblical scholar, and observant Jew Dennis Prager who talks fondly about the dog he had.

The rabbi and the court should launch a defamation lawsuit, otherwise the BBC won't learn.

They left out the part where the rabbis used the dog's blood to make their pastries...
