CAIRO (AP) Muslim clerics said Monday that Osama bin Laden's burial at sea was a violation of Islamic tradition that may further provoke militant calls for revenge attacks against American targets.
Although there appears to be some room for debate over the burial as with many issues within the faith a wide range of Islamic scholars interpreted it as a humiliating disregard for the standard Muslim practice of placing the body in a grave with the head pointed toward the holy city of Mecca.
Sea burials can be allowed, they said, but only in special cases where the death occurred aboard a ship.

Tough hop, er, splash...
Dumb0 is such a maroon.
You know that no matter what you do Muzzies are gonna get pissed so do what you need to and forget about “burying him like a Muslim.”
I don’t remember any of these Islamic scholars being concerned that the Muslims, or any of the others, murdered on 9-11 were interned according to the dictates of their religion.
Next WH press release: Obama carefully planned every detail of the operation EXCEPT the disposal of the body. That he left to the navy.
Ummm... so who's version of "Islamic Law" is our administration following?
They would have been critical no matter what he had done with Osama’s stiff. Oh, well. Now Osama is in the hereafter with his 72 virgins.
And how do they feel about the bodies of our dead soldiers being dragged thru the streets of Mogodishu? Was that “keeping within Moslem law”? How do they feel about Jewish babies having their throats cut by their pals?
Well, the sharks that ate old Binny will, at some point, face Mecca.
He should have been buried like any other moslim,
wrapped in pig skin with his ass toward where Mecca
used to be.
PUHLEEEZZZE. We all know that murder doesn’t need a reason in the Islamofascist world.
They are lucky we didn’t bury him in the skin of a large sow.
Sadly, that wouldn’t be all that surprising.
You can't fart without prompting muslim calls for revenge attacks.
I suppose the pigskin burial shroud didn’t make them feel any better about it. Some people just can’t be pleased.
Speaking of burials, when Uday and Qusay Hussein were killed in a raid the military went to great lengths to make sure they were properly identified so as to avoid the questions of any skeptics. I don’t think they had a speedy burial either. Why didn’t they do this with Bin Laden?
I hope they left a little blood in order to attract the sharks.
I would have burned him on a pyre built on burning Korans with the fire stoked by pig grease.
If we suffer another terrorist attack, we get to blame Obama....
