The Curious Affair of the Dog in the Rabbinical Court

This story comes at an opportune time just after my post about ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel.

Let's see if this gets much play in the media: because you may be sure that if a dog entered a Sharia court in, say, Iran and was sentenced to death by stoning, there would be columnists all round the world bemoaning Islam's medieval attitudes and animal cruelty.

UPDATE: the story turns out to have been a hoax. See here.
