Islam and Pigeon Porn

Avert your eyes if you offended by avian thingies.
The accompanying picture may be NSFW if you are in Syria.

The practice of raising pigeons is now banned in ISIS territory, because … get ready for it … when the pigeons fly overhead their genitals
might be visible.
Radical clerics have issued an edict prohibiting the breeding of pigeons in IS-controlled territories under Shariah law. 
Breeders have been given a one-week notice to stop – or they could face the terror group's feared religious police who can dish out punishments including public floggings. 
The ban is "to put a stop to the greater criminal act of harming one's Muslim and Muslim women neighbours, revealing the [pigeon's] genitals and wasting time", an Arabic notice said.
Except: Apparently pigeons don't have external sex organs. Nonetheless, their concern for women is touching.

In a separate report, three pigeons have been executed for spying.
The Islamic State (Isis) militants in Syria have reportedly executed three pigeons that it had arrested on charges of spying.
I'm anxiously awaiting PETA's statement on this.
