Adrian e-mails from Haifa regarding the Israeli mine clearing pigs story.

He says:
"No rabbi will have any problem with that one. The santicty of human life far outweighs any religious law. An orthodox Jew is commanded to save life even on the Sabbath, even when doing so would mean breaking the Sabbath commandments.

"When you are starving, halach laws disappear apart from the commandants not to kill and not to eat human flesh.

"Using pigs for mine detection would not be a problem. Finding a qualified willing vet might be.

"Anyway, given the mine situation here in Israel, we'd need a lot."
