Religion Of Peace Or Religion Of Primitive?

3 Million Muslims Stone the Devil on 3rd Day of Hajj

On Friday, the huge masses of men in white robes and women streamed over the sprawling structure, which resembles an immense, nearly kilometer-long (0.6 mile) parking garage. They furiously threw pebbles at the walls, denouncing the devil.

In the northern Gaza town of Jabalia, sheep were shoved into makeshift sidewalk pens, then dragged out for slaughter by butchers, who lay the animals on the ground with their heads pointed toward the holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

The butchers then called out "In the name of Allah!" and slit the beast's throat.

Other workers then swiftly skinned, gutted and chopped up the animals, tossing innards into big metal buckets.

"Even in tough times, we have to keep up this tradition," said Ibrahim Yunis, 65, standing with his daughter, who was excitedly filming the spectacle on her mobile phone. Yunis, a retired school teacher, said he saved up all year to pay $280 for a fat sheep.

So let's hope there's film at eleven!

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

  1. "I don't practice Santaria…" Maybe the film will be on You Tube? LOL

  2. Better an old building than a harmful implement justified by a pseudo theologin, to fulfill nothing more than insanity or extended fiduciary politico impliment in delusion. I liken this, in the harmless act itself, to a little ritual in San Diego. Years back the 'Mac Meda Destruction Company' would lease or rent an abandoned, usually condemned building. The empty building was partied in and on. Then in drunken glee summarily destroyed with dynamite. Rural and private. Heard tell, sometimes they got paid for it. Not for insurance, just to clear the land. Further I find it, well not too privately amusing because here it is, but a man saving all year, saying you goat, I am going to get you you goat, you fatted matted life, I will show you who rules the roost, who sets the rules. Meanwhile the goat gets fat. Some things in life are just 'Laurel and Hardy' all over and before. Then not again the goats have no movies, save the inexplicable folly of mankind.
