Do Muslims Hate Puppies?

Apparently so according to this article. The Tayside police in the UK issued some postcards for their non-emergency number with...gasp...a puppy on it. Dogs are considered "unclean" according to Islam (although I think some Muslims disagree on that). Some shopkeepers in the town of Dundee have been so outraged they have taken to NOT displaying the offending card. OMG! The police then went so far as to apologize.

Dundee councillor Mohammed Asif, a member of the Tayside Joint Police Board weighed the options of A. just ignoring this whole stupid controversy and B. speaking out and making all Muslims look like puppy hating morons. He decided to speak, although he basically just said that people were offended.

It's a picture of a puppy for pete's sake. If you don't like it, don't look at the picture. And while you're at it, I think you really need to check this site out.
