Muslims stone Satan
Death to Satan!
Now that’s one of Islam’s many “death to [fill in the blank]” many infidels can get behind. While Muslims (symbolically) stone Satan today — a (symbolically) good thing, to be sure — it is well to remember that, in Islam, Satan is often depicted as aÂ corporeal entity, who, for instance, eats and drinks with his “left hand” and “urinates” on unsuspecting people in the night; he also farts and runs some 36 miles whenever he hears the call to prayer. Just for the record.
“Muslim Pilgrims Symbolically Stone Satan During Annual Hajj Ritual,” by Edward Yeranian forÂ VEONews,Â Dhimmi Watch:
Hundreds of thousands of Muslim pilgrims are performing the ritual “stoning of the Devil,” Monday, at Muzdalifa, outside of Mecca, in one of the high points of the annual Hajj. Pilgrims will also sacrifice a lamb to mark the day Muslims call Eid al- Adha, or “Feast of the Sacrifice.”Â
Throngs of pilgrims cast pebbles, while some threw much larger stones at symbolic pillars, meant to symbolize Satan, on the Muzdalifa plain outside Mecca.

Ayatollah Mohammad Mohammadi Reyshahri, head of Iran’s haj mission, told the pilgrims some Muslims had despaired “in the face of Western civilization’s onslaught” but that today there was a “resurgence of Islam”.
Observe sharia law; slaughter a goat!
“Uganda: Muslims Advised to Observe Islamic Law During Idd,” by Anthony Bugembe forÂ All-Africa,Â
Kampala â€” AS Muslims celebrate Idd al-Adha today, the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council has urged them to observe the Islamic law (Sharia) and the ritual of slaughtering animals.Â
Sheikh Rajab Kakooza, the director of Sharia, said slaughtering animals for sacrifice emulates prophets Ibrahim and Muhamed…
Speaking of sunna and animals, Muhammad, according to Sahih Bukhari,Â theÂ most authoritative hadith collection, also recommended the drinking ofÂ camel urine for medicinal purposes. According to the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council, should MuslimsÂ alsoÂ “observe” that? And if not, why? Are they not both sunna?
