(From a previous post)
I say we treat them the way Pershing treated the Muslim fanatics (Mohomudans) in the Phillipeans after the church slaughter. Following the end of the war with Spain, but before World War I, we had trouble pacifiying them (like now). They slaughtered a bunch of Christians coming out of church on Sunday.
As I remember the story, this was the last straw for Col.,Gen ?)Pershing, who was in charge at the time. He ordered all the male muslims in the immediate area to be slaughtered except for one, as a witness.
The dead Muslims were wrapped in pig meat and splattered w/pig blood. Muslim zealots only fear was dying in an "unclean" state. They think you can't get to heavan if your "unclean".
This witness runs away to tell the other Muslim fanatics what Pershing and the Americans had done.
Pershing had no more trouble during the occupation.
The Muslims stopped targeting Christians.
There is a lesson here for some of these South Pacific trouble-makers.

I laugh every time I read this urban legend. Anyone who thinks the Islamists would stop their terrorism because they fear being buried in pig meat is delusional.
