Khomeini on non-Muslims and camel-shagging

Remember the old fun-loving grey-beard, the Ayatollah Khomeini?  He who led the Iranian revolution in ‘79 and issued a fatwa calling for the murder of Salman Rushdie?  He who said "there is no fun in Islam"?
I came across this recently in his collection of fatwas:
There are eleven things which are impure: urine, excrement, sperm, bones, blood, dogs, pigs, non-Muslim men and women, wine, beer, and the sweat of the excrement-eating camel.
Resaleh Towzih al-Masa'el (“Questions Clarified”), Qom, 1961, No. 83. P48.
So there it is folks: we non-believers are wedged in there between pigs and camel sweat!  Mind you, in a rare case of treating the sexes equally, the "men and women" are treated as one.  Then we are only infidels, after all.
Oh.. and talking of camels:
A man can have sex with animals such as sheep, cows, camels and so on. However he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm. He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village. However, selling the meat to the next door village should be fine.
Khomeini, Tahrirolvasyleh, Translated by Darol Elm, Qom, 1990
