|(from a news story on the Arab reaction to pictures of the corpses of Uday and Qusay Hussein being released):
"The Americans want to show the Iraqis that they are achieving their goals...There was no need to show the bodies."
He said while under Islam the bodies should be treated with sanctity, Iraqis would not forget that Uday and Qusay had committed vicious crimes against them.
"We shouldn't forget the pain of the Iraqis. These are just two casualties, and it would be better if their graves were kept secret, otherwise the Iraqis will attack their graves."
Mohammad Emara, an Egyptian Islamist scholar, told Al Jazeera television that displaying the bodies publicly was against Islamic Sharia law.
"Under Islamic law this is rejected. America wanted to boost the morale of its soldiers so it resorted to this illegal act which is denounced by all religions."
Bodies must be treated with sanctity under Islam, but hide the graves or they'll be defiled by Muslims.
