One interesting note about middle Eastern beliefs. They are absolutely terrified of pigs. Some units in the German military of WWII use to soak their bullets in pigs blood. The thought of death wasn't the horror for middle Easterners. It was the thought of being shot with a bullet soaked in pigs blood and the threat of being buried in pig crap that absolutely terrified them.

That is an urban legend I believe. Muslims and Jews don't fear pigs. They are just forbidden from eating pork and related products. That kind of make sense since swine are ridden with parasites and that would have been even more so the case several centuries ago.
