I Wonder If They Get Their Virgins?

345 Dead in Stampede on Last Day of Hajj While it isn't funny.... right now I really don't care a whole hell of a lot. What really makes this humorous is the same thing happens every year. It's a shame they can't have the hajj every week: Two or three here, a few dozen there, all because they can't wait to throw stones, or jog around a rock. Odds are pretty good we could wrap up Iraq and the rest of the middle east in a year or so if we could just get the herd to stampede. http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/01/12/D8F37N801.html MINA, Saudi Arabia Thousands of Muslim pilgrims rushing to complete a symbolic stoning ritual during the hajj tripped over luggage Thursday, causing a crush in which at least 345 people were killed, the Interior Ministry said. The stampede occurred as tens of thousands of pilgrims headed toward al-Jamarat, a series of three pillars representing the devil that the faithful pelt with stones to purge themselves of sin. Interior Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Mansour al-Turki said 345 people were killed. Dr. Abbasi, a Red Crecent doctor at the scene, put the number of injured at 1,000. So a big Nelson Muntz "Ha-Ha" to the newly martyred "Ha Ha hajjis." /Death to the infadel, indeed.
