Really? How come we don't say, "Condemn the Christians who abused some animals"? Or insert religion of record... but it's perfectly okay to brand 23% of the world's population here?

Further, the only coverage of this I can find through google is on the Islamicphobe hate sites.

But, here's a little balance from Malta:

There really is enough hate-mongering on this site. :(

My sincere appreciation to Debbie Williamson for sending me the link to this news/petition that you have posted Carmen, also with my sincere appreciation.
I cried when I saw this horrendous act of unconscionable cruelty causing suffering beyond belief to this innocent dog and cat.
I don't understand who would/could do such a monstrous thing.
Of course I have signed this petition and re-posted it on Twitter for more signatures.
Speaking of signatures as I mentioned to Debbie I am quite frankly appalled that so few have noted this critical petition and so few signatures have been offered.
So I will be sharing this with friends and I can only hope others will do the same.
Prayers rising for our dearest Relations that they may not suffer at the hands of those whose ignorance outweighs the Light of another sentient being's right to life.
May JUSTICE prevail !

Clearly they are yet to really find any evidence that it was a Muslim. There is every possibility that it was committed by a person with mental health problems but that again is merely speculation. It is typical gut reaction to target a minority group as a scapegoat for every crime or perversity in society. I would wait for the FACTS first.

I checked the Maltese news about this and there is no mention of the perpretators as being Muslim infact it suggests the person is native Maltese as a note that said "“This dog suffered the same passion that I am going through myself.” also there has been a spate of cruel animal abuse in Malta starting in 2011 a series of incidents involving extreme cruelty to dogs .
A jogger found a boxer dog close to suffocation tied inside in a black garbage bag. The boxer, named Gaia, died later in the day. Another dog, later named Star, was found buried alive in a field with nose poking through the soil gasping for air. The dog had been shot in the head and died three weeks later.Three dead Pharoah hounds Klieb tal-Fenek were found dead tied together in the sea off Marsalforn.
No mention of Muslims in any of the stories other from hate sites.

Jana DiCarlo (45)
Saturday February 8, 2014, 2:29 am
This is so twisted. If in fact it was Muslim related, they are prepared to relight a conflict from 1000 years ago? Really?
Surely there are more immediate and current problems to solve. If it is due to Muslim influx - stop more from coming if they are so unhappy being there. Besides, that poor dog and cat have nothing to do with ANY of the above issues, so how does their torment prove anything more than the people who did this - regardless of religion , and as any who have been on this site for more than one day know, cruelty knows no barriers; race,religion,culture socioeconomic class, geography.The individuals who did this ARE PSYCHOPATHIC SADISTS, in which case they need to be imprisoned in a psychiatric ward for life!.

 

Syd H. (48)
Saturday February 8, 2014, 2:43 am

See how hate is multiplied? There is absolutely no connection to Muslims in this case other than on hate sites and now Care2 but the comments show that this is now 'Sadistic Muslim Bastards' and restarting a 1000 year old conflict from the actions of just one crazed individual.

Are you prepared for the cruelty that can happen against innocents because of this false association you've manufactured? What if it was your daughter a mob targeted?

I'd be happy to sign if you change the title and remove the word 'Muslims". I don't know the facts of the matter but I do know that human beings can commit atrocious acts, whatever their religion or even if they have none. I admire your raising this issue and wholly condemn those who did it but this is not a religious issue it is one of morality, cruelty and bullying taken to an extreme. Your title will, for many, simply raise a one-sided and prejudiced response that will, in fact, detract from the real issue, which I assume is the cruelty to these animals.

I certainly empathise with those who are incensed by such cruelty. However, the negative emotions stirred about religion in this petition detract from its main point - or what I hope is its main point - the cruelty to the animals.

People of all religions or no religion are capable of awful behaviour and cruel acts. In addition, there is not yet any evidence that I have seen to show that the pepetrators were Muslim.

Even if the perpetrators were Muslim, that correlation does not prove that the act was caused by those persons *being Muslim". Please don't confuse correlation (which is doubtful here anyway) with cause and effect. It is not valid.

This is a tragedy and should be condemned but leave out the prejudice and hate mongering, please.

I had a difficult time signing this petition. I wanted to see the perpetrates punished who committed this
despicable crime against these animals but at the same time I was put off by the terminology used to describe those that committed this act of animal cruelty & abuse. That being the word "Muslim" even tho you stated that you were not trying to target a certain race of people but it would have been better and probably would get you more signatures if you had printed it out something to this effect...."Condemn and prosecute the people behind crucifying a cat and a dog to a cross" .

I find the wording of this petition very ambiguous ....It asks me to "Condemn Muslims that...." and not ... condemn the actions of... I am sure that the intended petition was to condemn the dreadful actions, but , to my mind and others also, the wording puts "Condemn Muslims..." to the forefront.From a lot of comments above, that would appear to have been the interpretation of many and has resulted in very strong anti -Muslim comments, when according to a link supplied Syd H above...the police have NOT IDENTIFIED anyone or stated a Muslim was involved.I would be very happy to sign any petition about any act of abuse and torture but not when the act is blamed on a specific class, sect , race etc....I am Irish and would, justifiably, be extremely angry if this petition read.... "Condemn Irish that....."even if an Irish person were responsible.I would ask that the petition is re-phrased to reflect the KNOWN details.

I signed the petition, however, I agree with others that the word muslim should be left off and for that reason, I chose not to share the petition with others. Christians are every bit as horrendous toward animals. This, to me, is not a religious issue but an issue of animal abuse and torture. It doesn't matter what the religion of the person or persons is. What matters is that someone with such a sick mind is walking about free to torture other animals. I detest all religion and will not come down on the side of any of them. As far as I'm concerned there are tons of christians doing just as outrageous acts as this to animals. Look at the galgos of Spain if you want to see animal abuse and I'm betting all those hunters are christians. The religion simply doesn't matter and should not be a part of this petition.

Had there been absolute proof of who did this, I would have gladly signed and shared a petition to have them arrested and punished to the fullest extent of the law; but religion needs to be left out of this.

The speed with which so many people signed this petition in its present abhorrent form, should be of extreme concern to any right minded individual.
Certainly the actions of the perpetrators should be condemned and appropriate penalties enacted. However, to sign this petition as it is written is to ALSO inappropriately and unfairly CONDEMN a RELIGION and its followers. The petition should be withdrawn and re-phrased for every one of you that has signed it, regardless of attempts here to disassociate yourselves from the religious condemnation implied, have in fact supported it.
The petition says what it says. Your commentary here or disassociation from part of it doesn't change that and therefore, by default, all signatories condemn those believers of a faith which is far from a minority one.
The venom of posters such as Jeaneen are entirely unwarranted, unhelpful and indicative either of immense ignorance, mental health issues, or terrible prejudice. They should not be tolerated.

Whilst I applaud Carmen for bringing this atrocity to our attention and I empathise with the horror and disgust felt by all those who care for animals and their welfare, that is NO EXCUSE for signing something which actually goes far beyond expressing those feelings about this action.

I would urge all signatories to this petition to consider carefully what you have done for, far from promoting what I trust would be your goal, ie. to highlight and condemn cruelty to animals, no matter how inadvertently, you have actually abused a whole faith and all those who follow it. - This is more than likely to encourage even more hateful acts, not necessarily to animals but not excluding them, either. Is that really what Carmen sought to do or what those of you who signed want to happen? With very few possible exceptions I would say not.
For that reason, once again, I would urge you, Carmen, to withdraw this position and rewrite it in a fair way that will allow far more people to support your efforts.

Like everyone here, I'm outraged beyond words at what these specific individuals have done. Indeed, there are no words of condemnation sufficient to decry the heinous nature and depraved sickness of this act.

Nonetheless, condemning "Muslims" as part of a title, no matter how innocently labeled, no matter how unintentional, is an absolute unacceptable use of this site.

I have no sympathy for hate, no room for excusing acts of pure evil. I can recognize all sorts of innocent linguistic slips and get behind their real intent, but this can't stand the way it is.

Let's take the title, change it, re-submit the petition and grab the millions of signatures it deserves. But I can't sign it as is.

Hate will beget more hate; anger more anger. We can only generate more problems by taking this path. Can we possibly justify our actions in support of the real victims here by demonizing an entire people? Isn't that the mind of the mob at its collective worst? Why would I write this this community? Because we know better. And if not us to take the high road, then who?

Barbaric behaviour plain and simple. Marking one's territory is canine behaviour, what does this indicate about the perpetrator(s), regardless of ethnicity or religious beliefs, of such atrocities? The behaviour obviously is the product of a very disturbed mind, the person(s) responsible need immediate psychiatric intervention, assessment and treatment.

The people who perpetrated this act, to me, is subhuman and whatever their reason or religion, they belong in some place where they can never do this again. As someone said on Care2...let us at them! Ben B, you are very kind. You may well be right but before they can be helped, they must be caught and stopped. And locked in a room with me. They will know what helpless feels like and quickly.

I noted and signed this petition, but with some reservation.

I thank Carmen for posting a petition to punish those who have committed these hideous crimes and Rosemary for sharing with me, but like Roger H., Jordan G., Terrie W., Vicky P. and others I would prefer that it was aimed at the perpetrators of the crime without labelling when there appears to be no concrete evidence to support that the perpetrators are in fact Muslim.

I went to The Bare Naked Islam site where the article about the crucified dog and cat is featured. Appearing on the same page is another picture of a crucified Chihuahua, also attributed to a Muslim who is standing with the deceased animal. In fact, this picture was featured on Care2 a few months ago with a petition to punish the man in the picture who was clearly identified as a Mexican at that time.

I am on this site because I care deeply for animals and their welfare, but I would hope we do not start to develop some kind of KKK mentality toward any group, and where facts are of no importance.

Well, I have to say that finding so many members of a supposedly caring community, willing to demonise a religious group, completely unjustifiably, leaves me very sad and disappointed. It would be so easily done for this petition to have been withdrawn and resubmitted in an acceptable way. Instead, Care2 is brought into disrepute by hosting it in this form and the cause itself is damaged because credible authorities will not be party to prejudiced language of this sort. In addition, there are many principled individuals who are very willing fighters for animal welfare but whose support will be lost because they cannot, in reasonable conscience subscribe to the unwarranted attack on a whole religious group.

That the instigators of this petition care deeply for animal welfare I have no doubt. However, their stubborn refusal to reword this petition suggests to me that they are very confused about what caring and compassion means, or that they are indeed prejudiced against Muslims and intended the implied slight in the title they used.

All of those who have signed should rethink their actions for they are all culpable and have made a mockery of all that Care2 is intended to facilitate. Such behaviour is one of the factors that contributes towards senseless violence such as this petition purports to be abhorrent. One wonders, however, whether this is more vengeful grandstanding than genuine caring. I ask you one last time to withdraw and reword this petition.

It said specifics about the letters and that he whined about the female in his life and blamed every one but himself. RELIGION was not mentioned. I read the complete article today.

This is the address for the actual complete updated article from today's Malta News.It clearly states that this man left notes addressed to St.Phillip inside the carcass of the cat .It names several other names.
NONE OF THE NAMES ARE MUSLIM OR MIDDLE EASTERN.
ALSO
IT STATES THE ANIMALS WERE DEAD BEFORE THEY WERE CRUCIFIED.
For those of you who are drawing religious conclusions from the cross,this only proves that Christians tend to be fan attics. It proves nothing about Muslims whatsoever.
Good grief. I was just writing to my children what a balanced group Care 2 was and this came up.
I think I'll crawl back to my Jewish Hindu screw you cave of agony and leave you all to your prejudices.

I cannot sign this petition in the form it is written. I cannot see how one can condemn Muslims for this heinous act of cruelty and barbarity.I have several Muslim friends who have expressed horror that they should be blamed for this.One has even told me that they would never succumb to using such a cruel method of marking out their territory.He further questioned was it not perpetrated by a demented Christian or satanist .I will wait to see the proof before I sign.In the meantime it needs to be re-phrased.

You know this is worse than the acts themselves because this is using those animals to foment hate against an entire people when there is absolutely no connection other than here, on the petition and on hate sites.

Congratulations on being so successful with your hate campaign. I hope you can live with the consequences when an innocent is hurt just because s/he is Muslim and violence is committed on her/him for no other reason than the hate you've manufactured out of nothing. You'll reap what you've sowed.

There's an alternative mirror petition which accomplishes multiple purposes. First, we should recognize Carmen and express the profound appreciation we all feel for her bringing this to everyone's attention. Without Carmen we don't even get to have this debate or know about this atrocity.

Next, there's another petition for the same purpose, listed as started by "Anonymous" so as not to be seen as attempting to steal someone else's good works of bringing this to the Community's attention.

See: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/614/759/652/condemn-and-prosecute-the-people-who-crucified-a-dog-and-cat-in-malta/

By way of disclosure, I started it, but only because Carmen brought it to my attention, too. It's listed as being posted by "Anonymous" because it's not about us -- it's about the horror we are trying to stop. I don't know Carmen, but I bet she, too, only cares that the Community accomplish its goal of stamping out animal cruelty.

Few in the Community (or the world at large) have escaped the impact of the horrific deeds of others, which often occur by the worst individuals among particular and very specific groups; however, branding an entire population, an entire people, race, religion, nationality, etc., is not going to get us toward the goal of eliminating animal cruelty or world peace or other lofty goals.

Save two worlds: the animals and our own. Sadly, we often forget that they are actually only one.

Please people, stop signing a petition that uses these poor animals as a vehicle of hate. If you do care then sign the alternative petition that does not specify a specific religion that in fact is not known or even likely given all the real facts in Malta (and the authorities in Malta are indeed just as eager to solve this as everyone else).

By signing this petition that condemns Muslims you are complicit in hate even if you say you don't care what religion is involved. Examine that.

Sign & note the other petition, not this one.

This does not prove that the perpetrator was muslim - racist slant.
You don't see "Christian" tagged about the menu offering mountai lion in South Dakota, so why flag Muslim here?
Perpetrator should be punished, definitely; his religion is irrelevant and, at this stage, not even known for sure.

Thanks, Carmen, for bringing this to our attention. I did sign, but with unease over the inflammatory title - and when I read in the body of the petition that there's no evidence of the perpetrator's religion, I rather wished I hadn't signed. (Even if it was a fact that the crime was committed by a Muslim, I'm not sure of the advantage of specifying a wrongdoer's religion.)

I also signed Jordan's petition, which sticks to what is known, rather than conjecture:

I agree the religious label should be left out of the article unless they're implying that Muslims murdered these animals as a way to start a huge fight with Christians. However it is not fair to imply this towards a group of people as it may not be the case at all - that only misleads and incenses the public. Like others have said - it could be an insane person who is a ritualistic killer and this is part of their M.O. It could be anyone for any motive. But the bottom line is that animals are being murdered and displayed in a really disgusting way. They need to catch this person, flog them in the streets and thrown them in prison.

Comments from Malta...
Mjr Xkmo' · President at Terra Di Mezzo (TDM) 2000 Malta

Ive been living in Malta for nearly 40 years so let me 'enlighten' you! All the evidence gathered by the Maltese police (and made public for transparency and cooperation) is pointing towards a personal tiff between two people, maybe a group of people; but probably Maltese. Plus I don't think that the examples of crucifixion you are illustrating are exact cause Muslims don't usually hang their crucifixions upside down. Please get your information right before starting a petition. Here let me help you! If you had a just cause I would have definitely contributed; So all of you signing this petition inform yourselves too! http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20140208/local/police-issue-mosta-animal-killer-video.505874#.UvaB4vldXTo

No matter who did it, they need to be found and hung themselves. Maltese people don't think it was religiously motivated, but rather the sadistic shenanigans of one of their own locals. Either way, the perpetrator needs to be hunted down and made to suffer to death.

I HIGHLY suggest.....that everyone, before signing this Petition read the well thought out and spoken words of both Syd H and Roger Hawcroft.

One can't be an activist and throw others under the bus by their doing so. Condemn the action certainly but do not add a signature to such a petition that fuels fires and hatred based solely upon belonging to one group or another. It would be wrong to say Christians, or gays, or black men did this.....it would appear racist or bigoted and rightly so.

There are many links on here to a more proper petition. Please sign there.
