Religion of Peace

This year, the Muslim holiday of Ashura fell on December 27.  Ashura (عاشوراء (ʻĀshūrā’, Ashura, Ashoura, and other spellings) is on the 10th day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar and marks the climax of the Remembrance of Muharram.

It is commemorated by Shia Muslims as a day of mourning for the martyrdom of Hussein ibn Ali, the grandson of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad at the Battle of Karbala on 10 Muharram in the year 61 AH (October 10, 680 AD). According to Sunni Muslim tradition, the Prophet Muhammad fasted on this day and asked other people to fast.; Sunni Muslims also celebrate the day claiming that Moses fasted on that day to express gratitude to God for liberating the Israelites from Egypt.

In some Shia countries and regions such as Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Lebanon, Bahrain, Commemoration of Husayn ibn Ali has become a national holiday and most ethnic and religious communities participate in it. Even in Sunni dominated Muslim community of India, Ashura (often called Moharram) is a public holiday.

So how do peace loving Muslims celebrate this holiday?

Ashura rituals and observances consist primarily of public expressions of mourning and grief by flagellating themselves on the back with chains, beating their head or cutting themselves. This is intended to connect them with Hussein's suffering and death as an aid to salvation on the Day of Judgment.

It's a family holiday, you take a big knife...

...and cut your head, then show your neighbors how much you bleed

Fathers and Sons


Mothers and Children

As Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir said,
"Peace will come to the Middle East when they love their children more than they hate us!".

Islam, now that's what I call the Religion of Peace!

Y'know, us Catholics did away with wholesale self-flagellation a couple of centuries ago .................. though many Catholic "bits" are still stuck in the Middle Ages, 'we' no longer tend to do such .................. gotta wonder if practices such as this aren't up there with their sexual puritanism, & overall bigotry, insofar as warping minds .....................

I cannot comprehend the level of blind fanaticism that would allow a mother or father to purposefully cut their infant child, and allow them to bleed like that.

My own blind fanaticism leans heavily towards protecting my children from any and all threats, not create threats towards them.


PS- I guess that's the reason I just don't understand them....
